    Database Help

    Can anyone help me please.

    I'm trying to make a database program, in the program i have a button called New and this will take you to another form that needs to be filled out and then added to the database. Once it has been added its then been put on the main forms listbox but it only shows the name in the listbox until you have closed the form down once you start the program up again it will then show all that members details that you have added.

    Take a look and let me know if you can help me.

    Re: Database Help

    Well lets look at the problem at hand.

    Your newly added data does not show up on your drop down list, after entry. But it does after you re-open the program. Consider these...

    a)Your keeping an active static data connection that does not see updates/or additions.
    b)Your not triggering code to update your list appropriately after the user is done entering and committing the new record.
    c)If your listbox can see the new record of information, but whatever screen that shows the rest of the information does not then you have a connection state and or type issue. Meaning the code that is accessing the information to fill the listbox is doing it right by either allowing itself to see updates and additions or it is creating a new connection at the correct interval which will see whatever already exists.

    Show the code that updates your listbox, and loads the detail information page, and the creation code of your connection.

    I am leaving work so I have little time to look this over at the present.

    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub cmdAdd_Click()
    2.     If txtSurName.Text = "" Then 'If there is nothing in the surname box
    3.         MsgBox "Please enter a Surname", vbInformation, "Volunteers" 'tell them to pu tone in
    4.     Else
    5.         frmMain.Volunteers.AddNew 'Add new record into DB
    6.         frmMain.Volunteers!Name = txtFirstName.Text    'V
    7.         frmMain.Volunteers!Lastname = txtSurName.Text        'The following code
    8.         frmMain.Volunteers!Address = txtAddress.Text
    9.         frmMain.Volunteers!Phone = txtPhone.Text
    10.        
    11.         frmMain.Volunteers.Fields("Fullname") = frmMain.Volunteers.Fields("Name") & " " & frmMain.Volunteers.Fields("Lastname") 'This fills in the Fullname field by adding the first and last names together, the fullname field is used for displaying purposes.
    12.         frmMain.Volunteers.Update 'Updates the database to incorporate new changes.
    13.     'End If
    14.         frmMain.Volunteers.Requery    '<--- The only thing I can think of right now try adding
    15.     MsgBox "Your entry has been added."
    16.     frmMain.ListNamesUpdate 'This calls a sub that re-fills-in the listbox on the main form so that the new entry is there
    17.     End If
    18. End Sub

    Your connection is dynamic and your using it around your application which is good and saves time opening and killing connections. So try the requery thing.

    Re: Database Help

    if the record set is still open then rs.requery or you can close the recordset and re-generate the SQL statement and reopen the recordset (which is how I normally do it since I never leave a record set open after getting the data from it.)
