When i am using northwind database (built in when installed sql server) to create a recordset, it is ok.
But when i am using my own creation database to create a recordset, one dialog box come out showing:

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'User'.

I use the same driver in odbc when i create the DSN

I am using Sql server 7.0 and ultradev 4.0 with Windows2000 server.

Please help...
thank you

Looks to me like USER is being thought of as a keyword or reserved word...

Try changing the name of the USER table to something else, and see what happens...

The only message I get with SQL 7.0 is

"The total row size (8353) for table 'File' exceeds the maximum number of bytes per row (8060). Rows that exceed the maximum number of bytes will not be added."

Hope that helps

I agree with dclary your create table is 8336 plus the length of the date. Which exceeds the max row size.  You have a fileDesc of 8000 (seems kinda large), just lower that until the total length is less that 8353 or break it out into a second table.

I meant lower it until the total length is below 8060 bytes.  Sorry about the typo.
