Posted on 2000-03-22

I can display all fields fine using
<%= Verify(0) %>
<%= Verify(1) %>
<%= Verify(2) %>

etc..

but when I get to the Memo field which is 5, <%= Verify(5) %>

I get an error:

ADODB.Fields error '800a0cc1'

ADO could not find the object in the collection corresponding to the name or ordinal reference requested by the application.


Question 1) How do I fix this? It only happends with any memo field. I just want to display memo field info.

"ADO could notfind the object in the collection corresponding to the name or ordinal reference requested by the application. "

I usually get this when I use
the wrong Column name, or there
is no data in recordSet created
by sql_statement. Double
check that Verify(5)= Column name
in Table AND that there is some
data .

If that doesn't work then
try this

<textarea rows="7" name="memoField1" cols="70"><%=Verify(5) %></textarea>

Apperently the array you are creating is getting confused with data types... I don't think you can build dynamic arrays with varying data types.

Why can't you call the field data directly instead of assigning it to the array?

<%= Verify(MemoData) %>

assuming your recordset is called rs, it would be  

<textarea rows="7" name="memoField1" cols="70"><%=rs("YourMemoFieldName")%></textarea>

Ok I tried both methods, the <textarea> and the Verify(MemoData) but I get the same error. It's wierd I can put a diffeent field name in the SQL statement and it works, but the minute I use a memo field it doesn't work.

Ok this is the error I'm getting now, I forgot the "quotes" before.

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression '1stDescription'.


1stDescription is my MemoField

Here's my SQL Statment

SQLVER="SELECT TicketNumber, FirstName, LastName, Email, Extension, 1stDescription FROM tbl:RequestCenter ORDER BY TicketNumber DESC"

set Verify=conn.execute(SQLVER)

OK OK I got it working but I had to change my SQL Statement to

SQLVER="SELECT * FROM tbl:RequestCenter ORDER BY TicketNumber DESC"

Which is not the best since there are a lot of fields and I only needed 5 of them but this works.

Ok it's working, it seems I can only get it to work by using a * and making MemoField data a variable

Descript = Verify("MemoData")

<%= Descript %>

Wierd but it works now.

I think there may be a restriction that a column name cannot start with a number.  So your 1stDescription would be the problem.  Can you rename this?

Another thing to do is put Response.Write (sql)
after you build your sql statement but before you run it and you will be able to see the query as it is being submitted.  This can help point out any trouble spots.

Your SQL string is fine, drittich may be on to something with the field number... try re-naming it.

Another thing, when you use the SQL string "SELECT * FROM ..." You are actually making two calls to the dB, one to get the names of the fields, and the other to get the data.  This is very taxing on the server if you have a lot of records...

Oh sorry mqfranz didn't see your post until afterwards. Renaming the the field name from 1stDescription to ReqDescription worked, also I put it in the <textarea> AND
I made it ReqDescription a variable and inserted it that way.

Descript = Verify(ReqDescription)
<Textarea> <%=Descript %> </textarea>

If your dB is large, I would try going back to the SQL string you had earlier and omit the * for reasons I had already mentioned.
