ADODB recordset FetchComplete event never fires

Hi, I'm new to this, so I hope someone can help.

I'm trying to write an analysis package which takes some hefty SQL server (version 7) views and then uses the data to generate graphs etc.
The problem is that I'm trying to use an asyncronous recorcordset and then have the fetchcomplete event fire once the recordset is loaded.  This is so I can gave a nice little spinning globe while SQL server does it's stuff.

I've tested the view on SQL Query Analyser and it takes about 15 seconds to load, however in my application the fetchcomplete event never seems to fire.

I'm using Windows 2000, MDAC 2.7, VB 6 with Sp 6 loaded

Here's some of the code ... (it's running in form hence a class module)

Declarations...
Option Explicit
Dim mblnTimer As Boolean
Dim mtrv As TreeView
Dim mnd As Node
Dim mintSS As Integer
Dim WithEvents mrst As ADODB.Recordset
Dim mblnGotData As Boolean

..code that starts the recordset...

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM " & strView
cnn.CommandTimeout = 200
Set mrst = New ADODB.Recordset
With mrst
    .CursorLocation = adUseClient
    .Properties("Initial Fetch Size") = 0
    .Open Source:=strSQL, ActiveConnection:=cnn, Options:=adAsyncExecute
End With

.. code that services the fetchcomplete...

Private Sub mrst_FetchComplete(ByVal pError As ADODB.Error, adStatus As ADODB.EventStatusEnum, ByVal precordset As ADODB.Recordset)
ClearFetch
If adStatus <> adStatusOK Then
    MsgBox "Record retrieval Failed"
Else
    MsgBox "Got the data"
End If
   
   
End Sub

Any ideas anyone ?

Thanks in advance

When you try it with adAsyncFetch instead of adAsyncExecute, it should work
Set mrst = New ADODB.Recordset
With mrst
    .CursorLocation = adUseClient
         .Properties("Initial Fetch Size") = 0
         .Properties("Background Fetch Size") = 4    
         .Open strSQL, cn, , , adAsyncFetch
End With

HOWTO: Use the ADO FetchProgress and FetchComplete Events

Well it now brings back the recordset, which is great!  However, my spinning globe doesn't work any more as the timer doesn't seem to be firing ...

Have also tested with the FetchProgress event and that's not firing at all

did you put a do event in your waiting loop?

NatchiketAuthor Commented:
Erm... don't actually have a waiting loop... was assuming that the timer event would act as my loop.
Do you mean I should go into a loop after firing the recordset fetch ?

to be honest ,i only ue asynchronous code in VB for ftp transfer and in this case i loop after having perform some tasks and wait for a time out with a do events loop, i exit this loop on error or time out  or if the transfer was well done.
without the do events the
Private Sub Inet1_StateChanged(ByVal State As Integer) subroutine was never triggered!
this subroutine is triggered at each step of the ftp transfer

Hi all,
Iam having similar issues. Please check following code.
Please note that FetchComplete is not getting triggered. When I ran in debug mode, I could see fetchcomplete was getting called once.
Option Explicit
 
Dim WithEvents Conn As ADODB.Connection

        mAcctId = mAcctId + 1
        ExecuteQuery DBConnection, mAcctId

    End If    
End Sub
