Automatic Refreshing

(OP)
I need to be able to refresh a control without the user having to activate it. I managed to do this using a timer interval, but having this constantly running slowed the other applications down too much. Does anyone know a better solution?

RE: Automatic Refreshing

(OP)
OR is it possible to display an Access table in a VB application, and will it display records as they are added by other users?

RE: Automatic Refreshing

Hope this helps :
After the user adds a record, you could 'refresh'..or you could refresh on almost any event...

Private Sub cmdRefresh_Click()
'This is only needed for multi user apps
On Error GoTo RefreshErr
adoPrimaryRS.Requery
Exit Sub
RefreshErr:
MsgBox Err.Description
End Sub

Private Sub cmdRefresh_Click()
'This is only needed for multi user apps
On Error GoTo RefreshErr
datPrimaryRS.Refresh
Exit Sub
RefreshErr:
MsgBox Err.Description
End Sub

RE: Automatic Refreshing

You could use the 'data form wizard' to connect to access db or ODBC...I find the wizard extremely helpful in generating snippets,etc.
