I am having a problem getting my recordset to be updateable.  I keep getting an error message say this recordset does not support update, etc.  I have tried using all combinations of the lock cursor type to no prevail. here is a snippet of my code.

set vConn = server.createobject("ADODB.Connection")
 vConn.Open "DSN=mydsn;UID=meuser;PWD=mepwd"
partnumber = "62222"
set vRS = server.createobject("ADODB.Recordset")
set vRS.ActivEConnection = vConn
sql1 = "SELECT * FROM FLELIB.VTPRTM Where PMPRT = '" & partnumber & "'"
    With vRS
         .CursorType = adOpenDynamic
         .locktype = adLockoptimistic
         .CursorLocation = adUseClient
         .CacheSize = 20
         .MaxRecords = 1
           'Open the result
         .Open strSQL, vConn

         'Verify the cursor type used.
         Debug.Print .CursorLocation
         Debug.Print .CursorType
     end with

Hi
the easiest way is is not to update the record set but to issue an update statement

Set cmd = CreateObject("ADODB.command")
Set cmd.ActiveConnection = vconn
cmd.commandtext = "Update lib.file set field='Update from Pc' where KEY_DB='Value' "
cmd.Execute

Regards

Hi
just thinking a bit more about how you are tyring to go about this
In RPG if we are using SQL to update we do the following
Declare a cursor
open the cursor for update of felds
UPDATE FILE SET DAVE = 'A' WHERE CURRENT OF CSR    

As you are using ADO this is an SQL interface therefore the above method is the only way you can ahcieve it.

The only other way is to use a static ODBC and open a reccord set using DAO and qualified library / file name

actually i got the code to work with the following code.  I am showing this to show you. Thanks so much for your response.

sql1 = "SELECT * FROM FLELIB.VTPRTM Where PMPRT = '" & partno & "'"
    With vRS
         .CursorType = 3
         .locktype = 3
         .CacheSize = 20
         .MaxRecords = 2
           'Open the result
         .Open sql1, vConn
       
     End With

Go with Dave's suggestion on using the strict "Update" statement and if you can using a stored proc. on the 400 side will greatly (by about a factor of 20) increase the speed.
