Run-time error

Error message when using an application developed in VB6 which connects to a database using ODBC SQL.

Run-Time Error '2147217900 (80040e14)
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server] An Explicit value for the identity column in table 'applicationform' can only be specified when a column list is used and IDENTITY_INSERT is ON.

Any ideas on what this means - In English ??

Are you trying to use @@Identity with Microsoft Access 97. If yes then it wont work with 97 but works with Access 2000 or later.

TimCotteeCommented:
If you have a table which has an identity field contained within it such as a unique row identifier, you will get this message if you attempt to specify a value for this field in an insert or update statement.

There are basically two ways to resolve the issue;

1) Don't try to set a value for this field yourself, let SQL do it:

  Insert Into MyTable (Field1,Field2) Values('MyValue1',100)

Where MyTable has three fields:

KeyField int Identity(1,1)
Field1 varchar(200)
Field2 int

2) If you must specify the value yourself for some reason:

  Set IDENTITY_INSERT MyTable ON
  Insert Into MyTable (KeyField,Field1,Field2) Values(1234,'MyValue1',100)
  Set IDENTITY_INSERT MyTable OFF

In your SQL batch.

Sorry for being really dense but I don't really have any experience in this area.  (Deep end and dropped !)

What I have found out so far is that one user has this problem on a test machine.

(It works fine for me)

They are trying to save an application form which has been generated using forms produced within a VB6 application which links to a DBO on a SQL Server.

The database (applicationform.dbo) has a number of fields.
One of which is called applicationformid which is listed as the identity field in database properties.

I run on Access 97 on an XP machine - No problem
I believe the user is running on Access 97 on an NT machine.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/tsqlref/ts_set-set_7zas.asp

Above site says :

At any time, only one table in a session can have the IDENTITY_INSERT property set to ON. If a table already has this property set to ON, and a SET IDENTITY_INSERT ON statement is issued for another table, Microsoft® SQL Server™ returns an error message that states SET IDENTITY_INSERT is already ON and reports the table it is set ON for.

I tried opening several instances of the program to see if that might have caused the problem of a SET IDENTITY_INSERT ON but it worked fine.  Searched through the VB code to see if I could identify at which point the SET was happening but couldn't see any mention of it. ?

Tim - I believe this is the code that is running.  The msg appears when the user tries to save the record.
