I would be the happiest person if someoen solve my problem.

Iam using oracle as backend and VB as frontend.

1. i have table in oracle under a user
2. when i connect to oracle and fetch the records under the table using an recordset visual basic doesnt give an error.
3. but only during runtime,  when  it encountered the code for displaying the fetched field (     for ex like rec("Dateofjoin") ) it pops me an error -2147217887(80040e21) errors occured
4. This same code is running fine with other user id in oracle.
5. I cannot not figure out whether the error is with vb or oracle .
if anybody can help me out plz

The (80040e21) portion of the error means that the field is too small to accept the amount of data you're trying work with.  http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/adoce31/html/ado30ref_103.asp

The -2147217887 portion of the error is one of those obscure MS errors that even Microsoft has a hard time figuring out what it means.  It is an OLE DB Specific error that pops up for many reasons.  http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnacchbk/html/acsybex_chap6.asp

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Are you using Odbc driver or directly attack Oracle ?

Hi!

I think you try latebinding someting which is not creatable.

Try reference these objects and stop using "create object"
