Synchronizing 2 tables RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 2 Access tables, each having a 1 to 1 relationship.

    I have data in one table listing control signals from a servo controller.

    The second table has antenna control signals.

    The signals have the same names.

    I want to select a signal name in the first table and have the corresponding line with the same signal name highlighted in the second table.

    How do I sync these 2 tables?

    I'm envisioning the same signal name line in each table being highlighted in each table.

  • Hi,

    Where did you display the two tables? In a form? If so, please refer to the following code.

        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            // TODO: This line of code loads data into the 'testDataSet1.TableB' table. You can move, or remove it, as needed.
            // TODO: This line of code loads data into the 'testDataSet.TableA' table. You can move, or remove it, as needed.
            dataGridView1.AllowUserToAddRows = false;
            dataGridView2.AllowUserToAddRows = false;
        private void dataGridView1_CellClick(object sender, DataGridViewCellEventArgs e)
            if (dataGridView2.Columns[e.ColumnIndex].HeaderText == "name")
                for (int i = 0; i < dataGridView2.Rows.Count; i++)
                    if (dataGridView2.Rows[i].Cells[0].Value.ToString() == dataGridView1.Rows[e.RowIndex].Cells[e.ColumnIndex].Value.ToString())
                        dataGridView2.Rows[i].Selected = true;

    Test result,
