What kind of "database" are you using?
NCSOAuthor Commented:
it is a small access database used to capture latitude and longitude
Here is a basic example that uses a Timer to add a labels caption to a database every 30 seconds. This example is using a MS Access Database:

' add a reference to Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects Library:
Dim DataBase As String
Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

Private Sub Form_Load()
Timer.Interval = 30000
Timer1.Enabled = True
DataBase = "C:\MyDataBase.mdb"

' open Database Connection
Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
cn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source='" & DataBase & "'"
cn.CursorLocation = adUseClient

' open recordset
Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
rs.Open "Select * From DBTableName", cn, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic

End Sub

Private Sub Timer1_Timer()

' add new record to Table
rs.Fields("YourFieldName").Value = Label1.Caption

End Sub

Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
' close recordset
Set rs = Nothing

' close connection
Set cn = Nothing
End Sub
