How to access records from ODBC in VC++(MFC)???



   I am building a instant messenger in VC++

   My problem is that i can access the records from the database using CRecordSet as shown:::
     rs.Open(CRecordset::dynaset,_T("Select EmpLogin from EmpApplList where AppLogin = '"+(((CVidserverDlg*)m_pWnd)->m_LoginInfo[0])+"'"));

     while(!rs.IsEOF() )
      {
        m_EmpNames[i] = rs.m_EmpLogin ;    
        wsprintf(outtext,"%s  %d",m_EmpNames[i],i);
        AfxMessageBox(outtext);
        i++;    
        rs.MoveNext();
      }
The query is getting executed properly but the problem is that i can't see the value in rs.m_EmpLogin where rs is an object of CRecordSet  
I think that the values are not getting bound to the database fields????
i will be thankful for prompt replies

   urs sincerely

Are you sure there is a good open to the recordset?

[...assuming the rs.m_EmpLogin is a CString...]
What data type is the m_EmpNames array?
If it is an array of CString, you may need to call GetBuffer(0) inside the wsprintf
wsprintf(outtext,"%s  %d",m_EmpNames[i].GetBuffer(0),i);

If it's not a CString array, you will have data type issues when assigning the rs.m_EmpLogin to it.

hello Mr Triskelion

    I did the thing which u said 'coz i am using CString array only ....thanx for it

The problem doesn't get solved ...
actually the loop executes as many times as it finds records in the database in that table but the value doesn't get bound to  the variable of the CRecordSet class
that is rs.m_EmpLogin


Prompt reply will be highly appreciative
thanx

TriskelionCommented:
Did you check your DoFieldExchange() to make sure it's returning the data type you expect?
Is the m_EmpLogin listed as a CString in the header file?

If you AfxMessageBox(m_EmpLogin) in the loop (without usint wsprintf()), what happens?

Derive a class from CRecordset, MFC will ask the DSN Name, so u just select it.

Then MFC will create a class containing the members with  prefix "m_" .


GOOD LUCK

do something like:
rs.GetFieldValue(0,m_EmpNames[i]);
instead of:
m_EmpNames[i] = rs.m_EmpLogin ;

Hi

>> m_EmpNames[i] = rs.m_EmpLogin ;    

I am not sure about the data type  rs.m_EmpLogin returns.
Can you pl mention the data type rs.m_EmpLogin belong while creating this table.
How you have configured your DSN ?
Which ODBC driver your DSN is configured to ?

I faced similary problem like i was not able get numeric values from the table even through query executed properly and i configured my DSN with Microsoft ODBC for Oracle and i was able to get both the string values and numeric values.

Thanx to all of the experts who particiapted in this quest

I got the answer
actually i need to make a different CRecordSet Object class for diffferent tables in my database

The mistake i did was  that i was using same CRecordSet for different tables
hence it was giving such wage replies

My special thanx to mr Triskelion for his kind help

hi india_bb

If you are using SELECT * from table query then single CRecordset object is enough.But if you are using UPDATE SQL Statements then for each table you should CRecordset object seperately and each fields should be binded.This how i solve similar problem.
