Unable to insert a record

Posted on 1998-09-25
Last Modified: 2010-03-19

I'm using MSSQL-Sererver 6.5 and MS Visual C++ 5.0 with the class CRecordset. I have no problems with reading the records. But when I try to add a record I get the error:

Recordset is read-only

The following lines are a part of my Program:

    Open();                     // -> returns 1
    m_pDatabase->BeginTrans();  // -> returns 0 ???
    AddNew();                   // -> DBException

Can anyone help me?

I'd probably check the permissions on the table in question in SQL Server.  You may have "select" granted, but not "update" or "insert".

the other I thing you missed is to set open options to read/write by default it may be readonly.

To Insert Records , CRecordset should be Dynaset type. This can be specified while creating the project using AppWizard , In Datasource option select dynaset  ,  by default it is snapshot (Read Only)

Thanks for your answer.
The option snapshot does not mean read-only,but the changes made by other users are not visible until the recordset is closed and then reopened.

Sorry, I didn't wrote that I use the recordset for two different tables. In the first table I convert a string into an integer. The second table is used to insert the record. One field of the record is the integer from the first table.

If I don't use the first table to convert the string I can insert the record (with option snapshot).

as you said, the problem is your conversion of the string to the integer.  can you eliminate all conversion functions (convert() et al) from your select list and handle the conversions programmatically?

I need the conversion from the database, but I can use a second Recordset.

Thanks for the help.
