More than one program running @ the same time

More than one program running @ the same time

More than one program running @ the same time

looking for advice..???

If I have two programmes running at the same time... How do I pass data between them ???

Many Thanks



RE: More than one program running @ the same time

How much data???
Simplest way
Lots of data, I would use an Access database
Small amounts, Text file
Need some examples???


RE: More than one program running @ the same time

DougP is on the mark. If you need to transfer more than 32kb of data in one operation, a connected table is the easy and fast way. If not, a Type...End Type declaration followed by a Dim of the data and a subsequent Get or Put of the array seems to handle the "small amounts" designation. Depending on your system, the last solution can handle several terabytes of data in a matter of seconds.
But it won't correctly display a read from a Jet database. The programmer is expected to read and write using a fixed Type...End Type structure (a "flat file").
Ahhh, it is incredibly fast, but never expect another app to understand the structure! (Without help.)
