I have a feeling that you oversimplified your ASP code here.  There is a known issue with this type of code, but only if there is an open rs with pending actions when you try to open another rs.

This error only occurs if you use the default Firehose cursor.  You can prevent it by setting something other than a read-only, forward-only cursor on the rsTemp open.

If you have a connection already made make sure you close it and set it to nothing before trying to open a new connection.  Just a thought.  I know I've had problems in the past similiar to this one.

CFXPERT,

I solve this problem by the following method:

1. Define(Dim) a local variable in the function. Otherwise, other function can use this variable and error may occur.

2. Create another connection to update the recordset

3. make sure you close it and set it to nothing before trying to open a new connection.

Thanks!
