Using SqL with VB

Using SqL with VB

My question is more for my general understanding

If I open and view a table using a SQL string like this

   gstrSQL1 = "SELECT * From Consignors ORDER BY [Last Name],[First Name];"
   Set rsRs1 = gSequelDB.OpenRecordset(gstrSQL1, dbOpenSnapshot)

I know I have to close it with code like this after all my viewing of the records is complete

   Set rsRs1 = Nothing

Not for the part I not sure about

If I use a SQL string like this to update a record in the table do I have to close it as above or is the operation completed with the update?

   gstrSQL1 = "UPDATE Users SET Password = 'AutoLogonNo' WHERE RecordID = 1"
   gSequelDB.Execute gstrSQL1, dbSeeChanges

Thank you

RE: Using SqL with VB

A recordset is an object and should be closed and then set to nothing when it is no longer needed. A query is not an object.  There is nothing to close.
