Hi,

I am getting the following problem .

Maximum locks exceeded per file.Increase the Locks per file.

I am trying with the following code.

Set rstemp = New ADODB.Recordset
rstemp.Open sCond, adoConAccess, adOpenStatic, adLockPessimistic

is there any effect of using adlockpessimistic ?
Any disadvantages of using   adlockpessimistic instead of adlockoptimistic


Pls let me know ..

Thanks,
Siva.

I  had the same problem but reading following link helped me to fix it.


Basically you need to avoid using adLockPessimistic, but if you have to updare the records as soon as possible.

Look here: It is a golden link.

http://www.vbmysql.com/articles/cursorsandlocks.html

it talked about mysql database , but these concepts are exactly same for SQL sever and MS access.

The message has nothing to do with the type of lock you are using. adLockPessimistic and others specify as to how the database records are locked once the data is accessed.  Your problem seems to be with a number of locks.

Are you using an Access database? Is the file stored on a Novell file server?

Lock Pessamastic - Locks the record when it is read for update
Lock Optamistic - locks the record when it is updated

If there is only one user of the database then Optomistic is OK
If there is more than one user then you have to be able to handle the situation that :

1 ) the record may be locked by a second user when tou go to update it.
2) the record may have changed between the time you read the record and you are now rewriting it.

additionally,

Depending on the database
    - If you are using commitment control then all records that have been read remain locked until a "Commmit" or a "Rollback" is issured.

Good luck,
Ed
