Use global variables to fill form after Adodc AddNew call
Posted on 2006-10-23
Application with two forms. Main Data and Assistance Data. Main data only has one entry for each applicant. Assistance can have any number of entrys of each applicant in the Main Data. When I get a request from a applicant I check my main data to verify they are in data base or I enter their SSN and data at that time. I want to be able to save the data such as first and last names, address etc as global variables when selected in main form. I then call the Assistance form and issue a AddNew call. Form of course clears as it should but I haven't figured away to make it take the global variables to fill the approprate text boxes. I did it with DBASE, FoxPlus 2.6 and Visual FoxPro but haven't coaxed Visual Basic 6 into doing it for me.
I've just taken up Visual Basic in the last couple of years just to learn something new. Been programming since DOS 1 and Vulcan, just trying to teach a 77 year old geek some new tricks. I know it's real simple, just can't see it. Any ideas.
