What is the best way of using data from MS Access databases across a multiple form Visual Studio Project

Posted on 2009-05-04

I would like some suggestions about the best way of using the data from Access Databases across multiple pages in a Visual project.  If I use the Data Access wizards from each page in the project, the transactions become messy between pages. Would it be best to have a Global Module that handles the transactions?  Any links to code that would help me would be greatly appreciated.

The software used is VB.Net 2008.  I haven't the experience yet of using databases in visual without using the data wizards that connect to the access databases and configure all the necessary code automatically. The problem is that I have multiple pages that can be open at the same time in my project that access the same data, and because the data wizard codes the data access to each page, I have the problem of data being changed on one page not accessible immediately in the other pages.  Ideally if I could have a global data access module across the whole project that is updateable from multiple pages and other modules I could be sure of data integrity.

I just don't know of a way I can do this

Any help appreciated

Is this ASP or windows form?

This is multiple window forms that will be open simultaneously.

obviously make a module for retrieving and setting data and then use that module as the gateway for all of your forms.
the baisc logic is not to have many instances of same or similar code.
