hi

I am having this error
ADODB.Recordset error '800a01b6'

Object doesn't support this property or method

/magazine/admin/pub1.asp, line 20

the line 20 states as follows :

call rs.Update("Description",Request.Form("textarea1"))

the code is as follows :

db = Application("Connection1_ConnectionString")

Set dbGlobalWeb = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
dbGlobalWeb.Open(db)


SQL="SELECT * from groupe where id = 3 "

Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rs.Open SQL, db, 3,3

call rs.Update("Description",Request.Form("textarea1"))
call rs.Update("title",Request.Form("button"))

rs.Close()


Note that it is used to work on my server (NT4.0 IIS 4.0) now it is not working on my HOST server

Please advice

update your mdac..
http://www.microsoft.com/data/download.htm

 if the db is access you'll need to give write permissions

also try to change your conn string to:

rs.Open SQL, db, 1,3

I agree with Silvers5 about recordset open parameters.
You'd better use 1 (adOpenKeyset) instead 3 (adOpenStatic)
But I like to use next way:
<%
function formatSqlText(value)
  formatSqlText="'"&Replace(value, "'", "''")&"'"
end function


SQL="UPDATE groupe SET Description = "&formatSqlText(Request.Form("textarea1"))&", title = "&formatSqlText(Request.Form("button"))&" where id = 3 "

Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rs.Open SQL, db, 3,3

rs.Close()
%>
It is more effective than force ADO to create update automatically. Spend little time to read about Update and Insert SQL clauses. I think you'll get less problems using them and will create more efficient code.
formatSqlText function will change text entered by user to safe one.

And possible it is better to use
rs.Open SQL, dbGlobalWeb, 3,3
instead of
rs.Open SQL, db, 3,3

ADO will create connection object automatically in your code so it is better thay you either do not create dbGlobalWeb object or use it in your code.

This may be a fairly simplistic answer, but it is possible that you get the error because your request.form("textarea1") is null, and several times, even if a database field allows a null value, it will not allow you to do this.

I suggest either validating the input for textarea1, or even better:

call rs.Update("Description",Request.Form("textarea1") & "")

The addition of &"" will make a null string an empty string, and it can then be stored.

HTH,

Kevin

If it used to work in the server you had before, maybe it has to do with the ODBC data source, check that it connects propperly, and that the user info in it grants read/write access.
