MoveLast doesn't appear to be working...

MoveLast doesn't appear to be working...

(OP)
I have the following code and I am stepping through it and monitoring a watch variable for rsx.EOF
but immediately after it executes the rsx.MoveLast line in the code, the watch variable stays at
rsx.EOF False

I would expect it to be True after executing this. Any suggestions why it isn't?

Thanks

CODE -->

strSql = "Select * from SameOrd_tbl order by License_PartNO"
   Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(strSql, dbOpenDynaset)
   strSql = "Select * from PC_Lic_Line_tbl order by License"
   Set rsx = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(strSql, dbOpenDynaset)
   
   If rs.RecordCount > 0 Then      ' if this is an empty table then don't bother...
      rs.MoveFirst                    ' Get first rsx record
      If rsx.RecordCount > 0 Then      ' if this is an empty table then don't bother...
         Do While Not rs.EOF
            rsx.MoveFirst                     ' Get first rs record
            Do While Not rsx.EOF
               If rs!License_PartNO = rsx!License Then
                  rs.Edit
                     rs!SystemType = rsx!SysType
                  rs.Update
                  rsx.MoveLast
               Else
                  rsx.MoveNext
               End If
            Loop
            rs.MoveNext
         Loop
      End If
   End If
   rs.Close
   rsx.Close 

This code was working fine for some time and all of a sudden it started to get hung up
because the Movelast stopped setting the table to EOF.

I closed the database for a few minutes and then no problems it worked fine but
after half a dozen times with no reoccurring incidents it reared its ugly head again.

any ideas how to trouble shoot this problem?

Thanks

RE: MoveLast doesn't appear to be working...

rsx.MoveLast points to the last record in your rsx and that's why rsx.EOF False.

If you would do:
rsx.MoveLast
rsx.MoveNext
-> that would point you to EOF (rsx.EOF = True)

Have fun.
