Top 5 Questions

VB6 and WIN7

I think I entered question in wrong spot. I have a vb6 program which an end user clicks a file name in the file box on a form(vb6 program in florida). The pdf is located on a separate machine in New Jersey. When they the click the fle name the vb6 calls a sql 2000 stored procedure on the NJ machine which executes a com on the New Jersey machine which renames the pdf and also copies it to another pdf using filecopy in the com in the same directory. The problem is that the file box on the form in FLA does not refresh so the old name is still there. After 10 seconds or so it will refresh.
