Set the Cursor type to adoOpenDynamic and it will work. By default VB opens a read only cursor.

A snippet of code where you open the recordset might help. It might be read-only (altough that should produce a different error). R u actually editing something before calling update ? Give us the whole procedure, please.

thanks Sethi, Please tell me have i typed the correct connection string, because it says that provider does not support this method (rs.update) is there any need to write the "provider = " part of connection string, if yes, what it should be.
Thanks.

Hi, I don't know if this is stil valid, but microsoft oracle for ODBC always had issues in updating.

Here is a trick anyway that might work.

If you link to the table with (i.e.) Ms Access and create an index (yes, create a new index on the table you wish to update), then you should be able to make update even from your code.

Another solution is to use other vendors Oracle ODBC drivers.

Bye,

Max
