 HELP on how to modify two mdb database (local and distant)

Hi all,

This problem drive me nuts, i think that's possible to modify in same time a
server database and a local database but i don't know how...

Actually i've got three pages for add, update and modify some records on the
server database.
I use ASP for execute my SQL on the server and to trace my queries in a
table named MaJ (this table keeps sql literal and the dates of

When the client have make his modifications he clicks on a button.
Then i use a query to select all records of the MaJ table and i use the
Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") to generate a sql.sql file
and write a line for each record. It's make something like this :


When i do that, i use response redirect to my sql.sql file and the browser
ask the client to download my file (my client use Explorer 4, so there no
problem with response.redirect ;o).
If the download is ok (ouf), i wrote a little module on the client Access
database who read each line of my SQL file and execute the SQL in client
side to maintain a miror recordset of the server database...

Some problems with this method (sure it's not complete :o) :
- i'm never sure that the client really download that file (he can forget).
- as i'm not sure that the client have already download the file i can't
delete my SQL records of MaJ so my sql file will be bigger and bigger...
- this is ugly to code...(i do it ! it's works, but i really dislike that

So i've got the impression to code what in France we call an "usine gaz"
(something big and useless).

It would be very pleasant for me to know the method to modify the two mdb in
the same time, using ASP or ActiveX...

thanks in advance,

With ASP there's no way to modify a database that is on the client machine.
You have to do it with javascript or VBScript  at client side.

For example:
A user fill a form to add a record in a table. When he press a button, the
script insert the record in the client database and then submit the form to
server. Then, on the server, asp page update the server database.

To update the client db, you can copy the same code that update the server
db. If you use vbscript, you can create the ADO object with the
CreateObject("...") function (without "server.") and then you can call all
the method as usually.
Be sure ADO is installed on the client machine (You can use any other
database object, like RDO, DAO, etc., but they have to be installed on the
client machine.)
