I have a form where I try to bind a DTpicker control to a recordset field using datafield and datasource properties.
When user edit the date, an error appears stating:

Databinding collection error - field not updatable

Note that changes are registered in the field.
If I use a textbox with the same datafield and datasource properties, I have no error.
How to avoid the databinding error ?

Hi, paolodp.

#Questions
1. Are you setting the data properties at run-time (thru code)?
2. Is this the exact wording of the error message?

1. Yes, I set datamember and datasource properties at run-time.

2. the exact wording of the error message is:

Binding Collection Error (msgbox title)

Field not updatable, Bound property name:Value, Field name:FirstDate


(FirstDate is a field in the open table)

Error raises on lostfocus event or, if using calendar popup window, when calendar window closes (clicking a date).

I sometimes have this problem with combos. To fix it, I use an invisible label which is bound (the combo isn't). In the change event of the label, I set the combo and in the change event of the combo, I set the label. I'm sure that this will work for you.

Thank you for your tip, emoreau
I've already used this method; I could use also a textbox with a validation function, but before resignating to do one of these, I'd like to succeed to use the control as it should be used. MSKB does not mention this problem, I suppose not to be the first using a DatetimePicker bound control and I'd like to understand how and why.

Hey, paolodp.

#Questions
1. Are you using a datetime-type field for your dtpicker?

#Comments
Recently, I read somewhere that the first datetime-type field in a database is often interpreted as a timestamp field.  Add a second datetime-type field and see what happens.
