I am looking for a db navigator to insert and update a Microsoft sql 2000 database using an ado query.

I have a dbnavigator on a form but eventually I want to use it on numerous forms in an application. I want the form to be locked until a user presses the edit/insert button on the navigator and then once this occurs the dbnavigator then only displays the post /cancel buttons. If the cancel button is pressed then no changes are made but if the post button is pressed then the database gets populated.

My table is called customers and has the following fields:

customer_link  int  4  no null
customername  nvarchar  50  no null
customerref  nvarchar  50  no null
website  nvarchar  50 allow null

I have tried to get the insert query to work but I have problems inserting a unique identifier into the field customer_link and I am struggling with the update query.

Thanks

Hi dinilud,

It kind of answers the question about inserting new values into the sql table but not really on the update, any suggestions?

Insert (Assume customer_link is autoinc field)
=====
   INSERT INTO tbl (customername,customerref,website)
                Values('xxxxx','yyyyy','zzzzz')    //automatically added customer_link
   customer_link= Get Last Insered ID; //In MySQL 'SELECT LAST_INSERT_ID()'

Update
=======
   UPDATE tbl SET customername='xxxx1',customerref='yyyy1',website='zzzz1'
         WHERE customer_link=10

In my program, i managed like this. I don't know whether there is any problem.

Any way wait for other Experts.
