    Help with Database Operations!!

    I am writing a program that will use two databases. One will be of a list of names and numbers, the other would be where the information is stored. Is there a way that I can do this because it's two separate databases in MS Access. Please help as soon as possible.

    One remark: If you don't need two different database instances, don't use two. Use only one containing all tables. But that's database design, not programming.

    Which way do you use to connect to one MS Access DB ?
    You can use the same way to connect to the second. Just open up another object, call the open function a second time or whatever. It's like with files. You can handle as much as you like ( or memory can handle ).

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
