Is this a bug in ADOX or in SQL Server or in ADODB ??

Win2k, ADO 2.80, SQL Server 2000

This is the ASP code:
<%
Option Explicit
Response.Buffer = False


Dim oConn, sDSN, oCatalog, oKeys, oColumns, element, subelement

' crate ADODB Connection
sDSN = "PROVIDER=SQLOLEDB;DATA SOURCE=127.0.0.1;USER ID=sa;PASSWORD=;DATABASE=tivolirooster;"
Set oConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
oConn.Open sDSN

' Create ADOX catalog
Set oCatalog = Server.CreateObject("ADOX.Catalog")
oCatalog.ActiveConnection = oConn

' get the keys of a table which has a primary key (on an identity field) - also some foreign keys are present.
Set oKeys = oCatalog.Tables.Item("performance").Keys

For each element In oKeys
    Response.write "<hr>" & element.Name & " (" & element.Type & ")<br>" & CHR(10)
    Set oColumns = element.Columns
    For each subelement in oColumns   '----- error on this line
        Response.write subelement.Name & "<br>" & CHR(10)
    Next
Next
%>

============================
Error:
Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0cb3'
Unknown runtime error
demobug.asp, line 23
============================
But, this is only an eror if oKeys.element.Type = 1 (primary key). For foreign keys it runs fine.

The same code runs completely without problems on Access.

questions:
- is this a bug in ADO?
- is there some way to avoid the bug (different connectionstring, upgrade - but i have the latest ADO installed)

hmmm.. didnt go through your entire post above... reasd through the kb article posted above..

>>CAUSE
To retrieve columns used by the primary key, ADOX uses the IDBSchemaRowset::GetRowset method with DBSCHEMA_KEY_COLUMN_USAGE, which is not supported by the SQL Server OLE DB provider (SQLOLEDB) provider and is supported only by the latest version of the Jet OLE DB Provider which is installed with the latest version of the Jet Service Pack. <<

>>STATUS
This behavior is by design. <<

why do microsoft alway piss us off with the above line... behaviour is by design...

Sorry Sybe, I guess SQL doesnt support the method....

for anyone's information:

There is another way to get the columns in the Primary Key of a table.

All primary keys in a database are listed in a recordset using:
Set oRS = oConn.OpenSchema(28)

In the resulting recordset also fields for the name of the table and the name of the primary key are listed. Which is exactly what i needed.
