I have the following code which comes from a class module I use for managing an Access 2000 database (from vb6 sp5)

Public Function SeleccionId(cnnDIMENSION As ADODB.Connection, ByRef rsResultado As ADODB.recordset, di_clave As Variant) As Boolean
On Error GoTo Error_SeleccionId
   
Dim lcdi_clave As ADODB.Parameter
   
    Set cmdDIMENSION = New ADODB.Command
    Set lcdi_clave = New ADODB.Parameter
   
    lcdi_clave.Type = adInteger
    lcdi_clave.Direction = adParamInput
    lcdi_clave.Size = 4
    lcdi_clave.Value = di_clave
    cmdDIMENSION.Parameters.Append lcdi_clave
   
    cmdDIMENSION.ActiveConnection = cnnDIMENSION
    cmdDIMENSION.CommandText = "DIMENSION_Select_Id_Qry"
    cmdDIMENSION.CommandTimeout = 30
    Set rsResultado = cmdDIMENSION.Execute()
   
    SeleccionId = True
    Set cmdDIMENSION = Nothing
    Exit Function
   
Error_SeleccionId:
    SeleccionId = False
    Set cmdDIMENSION = Nothing
   
End Function

I have tested the ADODB.connection that the function recieves as parameter and it's working fine, the recordset it recieves is an empty one (just declared and instantiated before being sent)... the idea is that this command activates an Access Query named "DIMENSION_Select_Id_Qry", which redaction I put here:

SELECT [di_clave], [di_nombre], [di_descripcion]
FROM DIMENSION
WHERE (di_clave like di_clave_qry);

This query, ran from Access works fine, and as you see, it has only one parameter "di_clave_qry". The problem here is that after the line Set rsResultado = cmdDIMENSION.Execute(), the rsResultado recordset gets no records at all (recordcount = -1), and I don't know what might be wrong. Could you please help me find the error?? I'm using ADO 2.7. Thanks beforehand.

dont check recordcount property because its not the same all the times and it depends on the cursor type. to check whether recordset is empty or not check for EOF like this

Public Function SeleccionId(cnnDIMENSION As ADODB.Connection, ByRef rsResultado As ADODB.recordset, di_clave As Variant) As Boolean
On Error GoTo Error_SeleccionId
   
Dim lcdi_clave As ADODB.Parameter
   
    Set cmdDIMENSION = New ADODB.Command
    Set lcdi_clave = New ADODB.Parameter
   
    lcdi_clave.Type = adInteger
    lcdi_clave.Direction = adParamInput
    lcdi_clave.Size = 4
    lcdi_clave.Value = di_clave
    cmdDIMENSION.Parameters.Append lcdi_clave
   
    cmdDIMENSION.ActiveConnection = cnnDIMENSION
    cmdDIMENSION.CommandText = "DIMENSION_Select_Id_Qry"
    cmdDIMENSION.CommandTimeout = 30
    Set rsResultado = cmdDIMENSION.Execute()
   
 if  rsResultado.EOF then
    Msgbox "No Data "
    SeleccionId = False
  else
    SeleccionId = True
  end if
    Set cmdDIMENSION = Nothing
    Exit Function
   
Error_SeleccionId:
    SeleccionId = False
    Set cmdDIMENSION = Nothing
   
End Function

ignore " ", my windows OS is Japanese so by mistake typed something in japanese,

" if  rsResultado.EOF then " should be "if  rsResultado.EOF then"

SELECT [di_clave], [di_nombre], [di_descripcion]
FROM DIMENSION
WHERE (di_clave like di_clave_qry);
 where is your parameter lcdi_clave  in this query, the right query may be:
WHERE (di_clave like lcdi_clave);

i am not sure of the answer

The recordcount works only when if you use cursor location as aduseclient...


replace this statement
    Set rsResultado = cmdDIMENSION.Execute()
   
with

     rsResultado.Cursorlocation = adUseClient
        Set rsResultado = cmdDIMENSION.Execute()


Hope it would help u ... make sure u've included adovbs.inc file at the top.. you can search "adovbs.inc" file in google and download it..

I feel that, the recordset has data.. Just check if the recordset if EOF =BOF, if that is case then the recordset is empty.  

Change the cursor location to client side cursor. The default cursor type is forward only.

Dear Pire in your above query di_clave_qry is taken as value, not as parameter. Change your Query with this

SELECT [di_clave], [di_nombre], [di_descripcion]
FROM DIMENSION
WHERE (di_clave like ?);

I think fsaims is right. Also if you use wild chars, then you need to consider:

- Hope, this uses ADO so apply to VB too.
