VB 6.0 - Adodc1 Control Not Refreshing - VB6 - Asked By Eric Smith on 25-Sep-08 11:53 AM

Heres my problem.  I have a form name frmOwner and the user uses this to search for various information about a company. On the current record the user wants to view EDI setup information so they select an option from a menu and another form is displayed (frmMapping).  frmMapping takes the data from frmOwner.txtOwnerID.text and popluates an Adodc1 control, that is used to populate a datagrid (dgResults).  This works fine, but my problem is when I close the frmMapping and go back to frmOwner and go to another record and want to view EDI setup information the datagrid on frmOwner still displays the previous record EDI information, so I have close the form and open it again to display the new record EDI's information.

I have attached the code for the frmMapping, any thoughs on how to correct this behavior.  Thanks

    Adodc1.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=WITCO;Data Source=SQLDEV2"

    Set dgResults.DataSource = Adodc1

Try to do Form.Refresh() which will force the complete form to be refreshed.

The usual cause of this error is that your SQL Server only accepts Windows authentication and not SQL Server authentication.  It's either you also enable SQL Server authentication, which can be done using Enterprise Manager, or you use trusted connection.

For the different values of a connection string, you can refer to the following website:


refresh database - Perry replied to Eric Smith on 25-Sep-08 12:10 PM

What you should probably do is check to see if you're running from the IDE and then set the ADODC
ConnectionString to the respective database *in* code. Both the ConnectionString and Recordsource
properties of the ADODC should be blank at runtime:

Adodc1.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=D:\My
Documents\db1.mdb;Persist Security Info=False"
Adodc1.RecordSource = "Table1"

***Put some delay here***

Determine if running in IDE:

Can you give a messsage box in your form_load event to check whether your frmmapping form is loading second time properly, the problem of your frmOwner.txtOwnerID.Text not being set properly second time when the frmmapping is invoked can be because your form is already loaded into memory and and its only being showed up in the screen when the user clicks the menu item.

Private Sub Form_Load()
