VB6 - Refresh MSHflexgrid1 after updating it

Hi

I have a problem when i update my MSHFlexgrid1 to refresh the data inside the grid so that i can see the update i just did with the below code:
Dim a As Long

a = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to update requester " & EXISTING_USER.Text & " ?", vbYesNo)

If (a = 6) Then
        Dim MyConn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim MyRecSet1 As New ADODB.Recordset

    Set MyConn = New ADODB.Connection
    MyConn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" & _
                   "Data Source=" & MDIForm1.dta_base_link_audit_tms.Text
    MyRecSet1.Open "SELECT * FROM [spot_rate_requester] WHERE User='" & EXISTING_USER.Text & "'", MyConn, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly

    If MyRecSet1.EOF = False Then
        If MyRecSet1.EOF = False Then
       Dim strSQL As String

strSQL = " Update [spot_rate_requester] "
strSQL = strSQL & " SET "
strSQL = strSQL & "Region= '" & Replace(region1.Text, "'", "''") & "'"
strSQL = strSQL & " , "
strSQL = strSQL & " Authorized ='" & Replace(yesno1.Text, "'", "''") & "'"
strSQL = strSQL & " Where "
strSQL = strSQL & " User ='" & Replace(EXISTING_USER.Text, "'", "''") & "'"


MyConn.Execute (strSQL)
End If
    MyRecSet1.Close
End If
End If


 MSHFlexGrid1.clear
    MSHFlexGrid1.Rows = 2
    MSHFlexGrid1.Cols = 2

EXISTING_USER = ""
region1 = ""
yesno1 = ""
MSHFlexGrid1.Refresh

Open in new window


The only time i can see the update is if i totally close the form and re open it.
On the form load, the below macro run:
   Dim sSQL2 As String
    Dim oRST2 As ADODB.Recordset
    Set oRST2 = New ADODB.Recordset
    Dim oConnect2 As ADODB.Connection
    Set oConnect2 = New ADODB.Connection

        oConnect2.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    oConnect2.Open "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" & _
                   "Data Source=" & MDIForm1.dta_base_link_audit_tms.Text

    'Now to populate or fill the grid with your record do this :

    'oConnect2.cusorlocation = adUseClient
    oRST2.Open "SELECT * FROM spot_rate_requester", oConnect2, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic
    Set MSHFlexGrid1.DataSource = oRST2
    oRST2.Requery


    oRST2.Close
    oConnect2.Close
    Set oRST2 = Nothing
    Set oConnect2 = Nothing

Open in new window


How can i refresh it automatically without having to close the form?

Thanks for your help

As posted your code was hard to follow so I reformat it so that I could better understand what was going on. This is the result of that reformatting.
Dim a As Long

a = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to update requester " & EXISTING_USER.Text & " ?", vbYesNo)

If (a = 6) Then
    Dim MyConn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim MyRecSet1 As New ADODB.Recordset
    
    Set MyConn = New ADODB.Connection
    MyConn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" & _
               "Data Source=" & MDIForm1.dta_base_link_audit_tms.Text
    MyRecSet1.Open "SELECT * FROM [spot_rate_requester] WHERE User='" & EXISTING_USER.Text & "'", MyConn, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly

    If MyRecSet1.EOF = False Then
        If MyRecSet1.EOF = False Then
            Dim strSQL As String

            strSQL = " Update [spot_rate_requester] "
            strSQL = strSQL & " SET "
            strSQL = strSQL & "Region= '" & Replace(region1.Text, "'", "''") & "'"
            strSQL = strSQL & " , "
            strSQL = strSQL & " Authorized ='" & Replace(yesno1.Text, "'", "''") & "'"
            strSQL = strSQL & " Where "
            strSQL = strSQL & " User ='" & Replace(EXISTING_USER.Text, "'", "''") & "'"
            
            
            MyConn.Execute (strSQL)
        End If
        MyRecSet1.Close
    End If
End If


MSHFlexGrid1.Clear
MSHFlexGrid1.Rows = 2
MSHFlexGrid1.Cols = 2

EXISTING_USER = ""
region1 = ""
yesno1 = ""
MSHFlexGrid1.Refresh

The first thing I noticed is that you check twice for the same condition at lines 14 and 15 which is unnecessary, so if you should probably remove lines 15 and 28.

The second thing I noticed and what I believe is the source of your problem, is that while you query the database in that code, you don't do anything with the result.

In this version of the code I've removed the two lines I suggested above and added the code at lines 27 and 28. Let me know if that helps.

Dim a As Long

a = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to update requester " & EXISTING_USER.Text & " ?", vbYesNo)

If (a = 6) Then
    Dim MyConn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim MyRecSet1 As New ADODB.Recordset
    
    Set MyConn = New ADODB.Connection
    MyConn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" & _
               "Data Source=" & MDIForm1.dta_base_link_audit_tms.Text
    MyRecSet1.Open "SELECT * FROM [spot_rate_requester] WHERE User='" & EXISTING_USER.Text & "'", MyConn, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly

    If MyRecSet1.EOF = False Then
        Dim strSQL As String

        strSQL = " Update [spot_rate_requester] "
        strSQL = strSQL & " SET "
        strSQL = strSQL & "Region= '" & Replace(region1.Text, "'", "''") & "'"
        strSQL = strSQL & " , "
        strSQL = strSQL & " Authorized ='" & Replace(yesno1.Text, "'", "''") & "'"
        strSQL = strSQL & " Where "
        strSQL = strSQL & " User ='" & Replace(EXISTING_USER.Text, "'", "''") & "'"
        
        
        MyConn.Execute (strSQL)
        Set MSHFlexGrid1.DataSource = MyRecSet1
        MyRecSet1.Requery
        MyRecSet1.Close
    End If
End If


MSHFlexGrid1.Clear
MSHFlexGrid1.Rows = 2
MSHFlexGrid1.Cols = 2

EXISTING_USER = ""
region1 = ""
yesno1 = ""
MSHFlexGrid1.Refresh

Hi MartinLiss

Thanks for making my code more clean.

I'm having a runtime error 30023 on : Set MSHFlexGrid1.DataSource = MyRecSet1
when the result from MSHFlexGrid1.DataSource = Nothing.

looks like this line is the only error i get cause when i remove it, the data base gets updated but the MSHFlexgrid1 stays empty.

Please describe the purpose of each of the two samples of code you originally posted.

I was able to make it work without: Set MSHFlexGrid1.DataSource = MyRecSet1, just be querying again the same query that feed the MSHflexgrid1 at the beginning.

Thanks again for your help
