Form - Dynamic ADO Recordset not editable

Form - Dynamic ADO Recordset not editable

Form - Dynamic ADO Recordset not editable

Good afternoon!

I am unable to edit an ADO recordset for a Form using Stored procedures.  It works when the form has the property "Recordsource" set directly to a single table but not when it is dynamically changed using the code below.  

I created a small table of 3 records with 3 fields in SQL Server 2000 to test.  It has a primary field too.  The form is named "frmTest" and displays in "datasheet" view.  

The records are not editable when the rs is assigned to the recordset property.

THANK YOU in advance for your help!

' **** This section is to check for open connections ***
        If cnn.State = adStateOpen Then
            cnn.ConnectionString =       CurrentProject.BaseConnectionString   
            cnn.CursorLocation = adUseClient
        End If
' ***  Now, to create the instance of the cmd object ***
        Set Cmd = New ADODB.Command
        Set Cmd.ActiveConnection = cnn

        With Cmd
            .CommandText = "MyStoredProcedure"
            .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
        End With

' *** I believe the parameters below are correct ***
' *** I also tried adLockOptimistic ***

        Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
        rs.Open Cmd, , adOpenKeyset, adLockBatchOptimistic

        Set Forms!frmTest.Recordset = rs

        Set cmd = Nothing

RE: Form - Dynamic ADO Recordset not editable


This is a adp thing when you use a sp, even though it's only one table you have to set the uniquetable property.

So try this

 Set Forms!frmTest.Recordset = rs
 Forms!frmtest.uniqueTable = "tablename"
