Hi, I am using CRecordset and OLE DB

I have created it using an MFC exe wizard
and have added ATL support

I have added an ATL consumer for the database, I have created it one time with CTable and one time with CCommand (and both are not doing what I want)

I can read from the DB, and I can write to existing records and update them, but I cannot add a new record.

I have added support for update, insert and delete.

So that is where I am at, I will be glad to include any code you like, everything seems to be working good, but the the HRESULT returned by CRecordset.Insert() always tests true for FAILED()



please help me!!!

thanks
Bob

ps, will gladly add more points for good "explaination"

void CDb2Dlg::OnOK()
{

///
CBorrower cb;
///this is the subclass (right term?) of CRecordset

cb.Open();
cb.MoveFirst();
///
AfxMessageBox(cb.m_FirstName);
///this works, it alerts me the name of the first person in the db.

///
if(FAILED(cb.Insert())){
     AfxMessageBox("failed");
}
///failed is always popping up here

strcpy(cb.m_ID,"thespecial123");    
strcpy(cb.m_FirstName,"Bob");
strcpy(cb.m_LastName,"Bonham");
cb.Update();

CDialog::OnOK();
}


thanks for your prompt attention

jhance, I have wasted your time.

Unfortunately, I did not do as thorough a job as I should have when reading the docs :(

but you, as always, got me thinking, and I found my answer, THANKS!!

what I did wrong is simple, I have to set all the datas first, like
strcpy(cb.m_LastName, "SMITH");
and THEN I call
cb.Insert();
not cb.Insert() first.

so, I would have never got that unless you pointed me that it was the insert code that was the problem.

Thanks,
I'll be back for more help soon,

Bob
