Append an open record

Hello,
I am trying to flag a record in an open Recordset that was opened as adOpenDynamic with a ADODB connection.  I have the cursor on the Active record that I want to append but the AddNew method gives me error 3251 "Object is not capable of performing the operation".  Is there a way to do it with the Recordset or will I have to write and issue a INSERT SQL statement?

Thanks for reading this!

Us.Open SQL, Conn, adOpenDynamic

Where Us is a ADODB.Recordset and Conn is the connection to the active database.

yep adLockOptimistic shoud work because :


adLockReadOnly (Default) Read-only—you cannot alter the data.

OK. that got past that error.  Now what seems to be happening is that it is creating an entirely new record and I would like to just add a value to a field in the record that I am on.

to modify a field:
rs.field("xxx").value = rs.field("xxx").value + 25
rs.update

where xxx - your field name.
