What could cause being unable to close a Recordset?

    My application is MDI. I have a child form which opens a recordset on a table, keeps it open as long as the form is up, and then when the form is about to be unloaded, attempts to close the recordset.
     For some reason, in some circumstances I repeatedly get Error #3219, "Operation is not allowed in this context."
     I have two other recordsets which are also opened initially and closed at unload time, and they give me no trouble.
     I've tried a bunch of things, and have wasted over a day banging my head against this stone wall. It would sure help if someone could suggest one or more things which might cause this problem.
     Has anyone come across this particular problem before? If so, I'd appreciate your input.

Hi GebhartBob,  maybe the close of teh recordset wouldn't process because VB saw that there were changes made to the recordset, and didn't want to close it until those changes were either applied or canceled

So maybe adding a .CancelUpdate before the .Close, will solve it. If this is the case then add a dialog box to warn the user that he's about to discard changes made to the record

    That's absolutely brilliant, bruintje! I just stuck in the rst.CancelUpdate before the rst.Close, and it closed very nicely!
     Now, of course, my problem is to figure out why I didn't issue a rst.Update command. I should have, but must not have.
     But now ... at last ... I have something solid to fight.
     Many, many thanks for the helping hand. You've made my life a good deal easier.
