> First APPEND as many records as you want BEFORE TableUpdate the view. DO NOT touch IDENTITY field. When you want to send updates back to SQL Server do something like:

Hi Boris,

You are very active! But you have given me the right idea. I have done it a little different but it works fine now! The keyword was "REQUERY"

I have done this:

**procedure test

PARAMETERS id_nr && cust_id
USE orderreg!orderform ALIAS orderform
IF A>0
replace ALL cust_id WITH id_nr && for an existing order
GO top

ON KEY LABEL ctrl+ins do new_rec && Will be a commandbutton on a form

BROWSE && only for test


PROCEDURE new_rec && This proc comes in the click event from button

SELECT order && base table
replace key WITH nmax+1
replace cust_id WITH id_nr
Of course I will implement your error handling

Thanks a lot Boris,
