Can I retrieve all recordsets from a collection?

hi,

I wonder if it is possible to retrieve all recordsets by looping in a collection. A bit like:

For each rsTest in Recordsets
    ...
Next

I've tried the code above and this one:

for each rsTest  in cnMyConnection.recordsets
     ....
next

But it told me "Arguments are of the wrong type, are out of acceptable range, or are in conflict with one another."

What I want to do is a loop that get all my recordsets, close them and set them to nothing automatically.
(I'm maintaining a site where recordsets are not closed explicitly and typing them all will be a very big job!)

Thanks

if you add all the recordsets at creation into a collection, you can do that:

dim Recordsets 'as collection
set Recordsets = new collection
   
...
recordsets.Add rsData1
...
recordsets.Add rsData2

...


for each rsTest in Recordsets
  rs.Close
  set rs = nothing
next
'this is important !
set Recordsets = nothing

I will be glad if i am wrong, but give a thought to the following...

According to COM philosophy, as i understand it, the object is cleared from memory when ALL the references to that object are removed.

Now, see what is happening in above code. When you say Recordsets.Add rsData1 is not the 'reference' of rsData1 being copied in the collection?

When you call .close and set rs = nothing in a for next loop, is rsData1 still not hanging around?

Again, i might be wrong, but worth considering.

I have a problem with it.

I've just tried it and I have the following error message:
Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01FA)
Class not defined: 'collection'
/scripts/billing/bllitemisemobile.asp, line 44


Is there something I've forgot?

I am using IIS5 with SQL Server 2000.

Thanks for your help

You are not wrong, and this is why is have this:
>>'this is important !
>>set Recordsets = nothing

Clearing the recordsets objects will clear also all the last reference to the recordset objects...

You cannot have strongly typed variables (such as string, integer, collection, etc.) in ASP.

You can use dictionary instead (Set recordsets = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")), but then you will have change your for next loop as well...

I forgot to put the code:
dim Recordsets
set Recordsets =new collection

And the problems comes when I set the recordsets.

Thanks for your help

Sorry, forgot that you are in ASP:
set Recordsets = Server.CreateObject("VBA.Collection")

angelIII, your solution seems fine on paper but I have the following error with the VBA.Collection:

Server object, ASP 0177 (0x800401F3)
Invalid class string

The server is my local machine and I have Access installed so it should find the object.
Also, I am not sure that the VBA library is installed on our live server...

In the meantime, I'll give a go to the dictionnary option

Well, I'm stuck both ways even if both solutions are good.
Unfortunately, I don't have much time as I am pressed to carry on with other work.

But thanks anyway for your help, I'll carry on looking into it when I'll have a bit of free time.

NitinSontakke, I'll set up a question for you to get 200 points as well, your contribution has been as valuable as angel's one.

Just give me 5 minutes.
