> I assume that a shipment will involve the addition of a shipment record (or at least, the update of a shipment record's ShipmentStatus field.) If this is the case, why not create an update or insert trigger that would run your "update" application. You could do this totally within VFP without Winsock.

Thanks for your reply.
Unfortunately, I am working with a MySQL database, so I can't use a trigger, and because the database is probably going to be set in a remote server, it's not efficient to be checking for updates with a timer. That's why I thought of something that could just send a little signal to the application and it would react by fetching the details of the shipment.
