Run-time erro '-21472178888(80040e20)';

Consumer's event handler called a non-reentrant method in the provider.

1.) What does this mean?
2.) How can I avoid it?

It gets rasied when i am issueing a .Update to that record.

Sometimes when I .Update my recordset it works fine then others it generates this error. I cannont seem to pinpoint what causes it though. Anybody with prior experiance with this type of error? All the info you can give will help thanks.

thanks for the article, but unfortunatly the only resolution they provide is to use a client-side cursor (which is not feasable in my app) or to use a .Move 0 before the .Update. That still causes the error though. The error is caused when i am updating a fied in a recordset that is bound to a data combo(the article suggests that there may be aproblem with the data combo controls) but the reason i am manually updating that field that is bound to the data combo is because when I try to blank out a selection in the data combo it does not null out the field ..... Long Thought Pause.....

I relized that it was not nulling out the field because the dataformat was not set properly to a number type so it was trying to assign a blank string to the field and it would not null, so i guess your article helped point me in the right direction... Thanks!
