Opening a Table with CDaoRecordset

I have derived a class from CDaoRecordset that should access a table in an Access database (Access 97).  The table exists however it is empty.

Instead of doing a query, I want to add an entry to this table.  So I call Open() (with no parameters).  Unfortunately I get an exception that says:

"Too few parameters, expected 1."

I assume calling "Open" will open the table so I can use the "AddNew()" method.  The table was generated via ClassWizard so the default table and database name are hard-coded.

You need to use the Open() that takes a CDaoTableDef*.

  CDaoTableDef tableDef;
  tableDef.Open("MyTable");
  CDaoRecordset rs;
  rs.Open(&tableDef);
  rs.AddNew();
  rs.Update();

Remember CDaoTableDef is only valid for table-type recordsets.  Are you  sure you bound the columns you want?
