Default Write to a database

i need help on how my program in vb6 can write to my dbase.in my vb6, i have a frmAdd where i add in some records, now these should automatically appear in my dbase, looks like it doesn't, or it takes some time for the added record to appear in my AddRecord table.

Well. Is this a program that you have written yourself? or is it mostly code you have copied from somewhere??? Records don't automatically do anything - you have to write code to make stuff happen.

What kind of database do you have? Do you mean to say you are working with DBase? or is that just an abbreviation for database? Are you using Access? or Sql Server? or Oracle? Or?

Please show us a little of your database access code if you would like some help.

Generally, in VB6 you will use ADODB for your data access code. This provides a more or less object oriented way to access databases. ADODB is relatively straight forward, and I assume you must already be using it as this is by far the most common methodology for database access in VB6.

So... it is time for you to be a little more specific in your question, and give us some details about what you are trying to do.

your frmAdd must have a procedure i.e. Private Sub Add_Records(data passed to table)
Note: data passed must take the same order as the data table columns. data types must conform to the data type defined in each destination column of the data table. make sure that the connection to the database has been established prior to sending the data items to the target table in the database.
