run-time error -2147217885 with RecordCount

I am retrieving the current record number and the total records in the database with .AbsolutePosition and .RecordCount in a MoveComplete() event in an ADO recordset.  During testing, a problem arose when I tried to add a duplicate record to the database.  When I acknowledge the error and then Cancel the update, I get -2147217885 error, something about deleting a record.  I think the problem is that the MoveComplete event adds to the record count before the update is actually completed.  I tried placing it in the Reposition event, but that doesn't work at all.  Can anyone help me?

Refering to article Q236624 in MSDN, this was a but in Microsoft ADO.  Try installing MDAC_TYP.EXE to install latest ADO 2.6+.  Good Luck!
