Have you got the drivers for Oracle installed on the client machine and Oracle client running ?

Latest version of MDAC
http://www.stfb.com/Code/vbcode/mdac_typ.exe

What does your connection string look like ?

For the current Oracle ODBC Driver from Microsoft:

oConn.Open "Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};" & _
                  "Server=OracleServer.world;" & _
                  "Uid=myUsername;" & _
                  "Pwd=myPassword;"

For the older Oracle ODBC Driver from Microsoft:

oConn.Open "Driver={Microsoft ODBC Driver for Oracle};" & _
                  "ConnectString=OracleServer.world;" & _
                  "Uid=myUsername;" & _
                  "Pwd=myPassword;"

Can you paste the code ?

What I always do is this:

Set rs = cn.Open("Select * from mytable where 1 = 0")

'this will result in an empty recordset, cn is your dynamic connection !

With rs
  .AddNew
  .Fields("firstfield").Value = "my new value"
  .Update
  .Close
End With

Set rs = Nothing

D'Mzzl!

Do you have the approporate security rights to the Oracle database?  Most users are generally configured as read only users and thus not allowed to add new records.

I suspect you are opening the recordset ReadOnly (the default).  Posting the code should clarify this point.

Agree with acperkins. Hope you open the rs as readonly.

Thanks vincent. I am able to insert record. But why i cannot give provider name (Provider=MSDAORA.1)instead of driver name ?


I just tell what is my code ?


Declaration :-

Dim con As ADODB.Connection
Dim cmd As ADODB.Parameter
Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset
Dim sql As String

Form Load :-

Set con = New ADODB.Connection
Set cmd = New ADODB.Parameter
cmd = "Provider=MSDAORA.1;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=system;Password=manager"
Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
sql = "select * from mytable"
rs.Open sql, con, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic

Procedure in Insert Buton :-

rs.addnew

It is giving run-time error 3251 ( current recordset does not support updating. This may be a limitation of the provider, or of the selected lock type.)


But when i change code in form load like this

cmd = "Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};User Id=system;Password=manager;Persist Security Info=True"

I am not getting any error mesage in insert procedure (rs.addnew)

Can u tell what could be the problem ?

Doesn't look like you are specifying the server name in your connection string.

This is a known problem with the Microsoft Oracle OLE DB Provider.

You must use client-side cursors to perform updates against an Oracle database by using the Microsoft Oracle OLE DB Provider. To do this, before opening the recordset, specify the CursorLocation property to equal adUseClient (or the number "3").  

rs.CursorLocation = adUseClient

Meant to say at the start of that message

This error message is generated because the Oracle OLE DB Provider does not support server-side updates.
