Insert data into a table after selecting a  record in a data grid view

Hi all!

I am using VB 2008 Express.
I have two tables: tblInventory and tblTransactions. tblInventory has fields: ID, ItemNo, ItemDescrtiption, QuantityInStock, and Cost while tblTransaction has ID, ItemNo, ItemDescription, TransactionType, Date, and Quantity.
I created a form (frmInventory) with a Filter feature to only display the Items in the Datagrid View which match the criteria in a filter box.
What I wish to happen, after the filtering, is that: when an item/record is  clicked from the datagrid view in frmInventory, my other form, frmTransaction will show and the selected data will automatically populate on the fields particularly the ItemNo and ItemDescription.

Any suggestion and solution you will give is highly appreciated.

Thank you.

Ed

How are these two tables related?

Initialize frmTransaction  with the ID from frmInventory. When a row is selected, pass the ID to frm transaction and when form loads get the data from table to populate in the fields.

They are related by ItemNo.

There is a missing field in tblTransaction that I forgot to include. That is InventoryID.

May I ask how to initialize the frmTransaction and how to pass the ID into another form? Sorry, I am still on the process of learning VB.

thanks.

In the frmInventory, Once you insert the Inventory record,You will be having ItemNo.

--This part is in frminventory
In the Datagridview click event

Dim objTrans As New frmTransaction
objTrans.Initialize(IItemNo)
objTrans.Show()

-- In frmTransaction
Dim TransItem As Datatype
Public Sub Initialize(ByVal ItemNo As Datatype)
TransItem = ItemNo
EndSub

Private sub frm_Load()
Get the data as dataset from datatable with the itemNo and populate all fields
End Sub

Here are the events you can use and in the following fashion. Form2 indicates frmtransaction

Private Sub DataGridView1_CellClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellClick
        Dim f2 As New Form2
        f2.Init(DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells("txt").Value.ToString)
        f2.Show()
    End Sub
 
    Private Sub DataGridView1_CellDoubleClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.DataGridViewCellEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.CellDoubleClick
        Dim f2 As New Form2
        f2.Init(DataGridView1.Rows(e.RowIndex).Cells("txt").Value.ToString)
        f2.Show()
    End Sub

And in the frm transaction,

Public Class Form2
    Dim il As String
    Private Sub Form2_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
 
    End Sub
 
    Public Sub Init(ByVal s As String)
        il = s
    End Sub
End Class
