Hi,
   i have three threads each with a CDaoworkspace, CDaoRecordSet objects. The dao's looks at the same database. I create three workspaces i append them and make setisolationODBC=true for multi connection. I do not make begintransaction and committransaction because i have problem with the requery and addnew. After continously 10000 transactions i have unhandled exception in dao.dll. Any ideas?

Hi,
DAO is not threadsafe.

Syncronize with mainthread or use ADO instead.

P.S:
To all who think it works:
I know it (seems to) work, but
DAO is not threadsafe.
I know it (seems to) work 10, 100, 10000 times , but
DAO is not threadsafe.
I know Jet Engine ist threadsfe, but
DAO is not threadsafe.
and if you want to make CDAO objects threadsafe by marshalling, forget it

I did put the ADO com and i almost found everything ok, except i have problem with the AddNew and the UpDate. They introduce a VARIANT input for FIELDS and the VALUES. Any idea how the input variant inputs should include the fileds and the values (just the name or the IDispatch). Any example for MFC and the ADO com?

   Regards,
     Teo.

Hi Teo,
you must specify specific cursor- and locktype to modify or append, maybe that's the problem i.e:

_RecordsetPtr g_pRs = NULL;
_variant_t v;
long l;

TESTHR(g_pRs->Open ("Table1",strCnn,adOpenKeyset,adLockOptimistic,adCmdTableDirect));
TESTHR(g_pRs->Seek(_variant_t(1L),adSeekFirstEQ));
v=g_pRs->Fields->Item["ID"]->Value;
l=v.lVal;
