We are working in two tier environment Client A and Client B both use forms 6i to enter data in our DATABASE.

I want to design a form which can display an alert message box
(just like MSN inform us about addition of new mail message in our mail box ) on screen of Client B whenever a new record inserted by Client A.
And on navigating on the message box by Client B it should return only that new record inserted by Client A.

I would be grateful if anyone send me code or designed form .

What do you do when Client C or Client D enters a record?

Consider running a trigger in your form that looks to see if a record has been added by ANOTHER user (that means storing the userid and finding records that YOU didn't enter) since you looked last (that means you have to store in your form the time that you looked last).
