Insufficient base table err updating ADO record

Hello all,

When using the update property of a ADO Recordset, I am getting the following error:
Runtiime error '-2147467259 - Insufficient base table information for updating

I was ok sometimes and sometimes not. I figured it out when it happens. It only errs when I update on a record retreived using a select stmt containing UNION.

Can you help me with resolving this problem? Thank you.
Phil

I am using to open the recordset:
lstg.Open lstgSel, cnAgent, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic

and the following for the update:
Private Sub scrn_Note_GotFocus()
   saveNote = scrn_Note.Text
End Sub

Private Sub scrn_Note_LostFocus()
   If saveNote <> scrn_Note.Text Then
        lstg!NOTE = scrn_Note.Text
        lstg.Update
   End If
End Sub

That would be because it is a Read-Only resultset.  Make the following change and see for yourself:

lstg.Open lstgSel, cnAgent, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic
Debug.Print (lstg.LockType = adLockReadOnly)

and the following for the update:
Private Sub scrn_Note_GotFocus()
   saveNote = scrn_Note.Text
End Sub

Private Sub scrn_Note_LostFocus()
   If saveNote <> scrn_Note.Text Then
        lstg!NOTE = scrn_Note.Text
        lstg.Update
   End If
End Sub

UNIONed queries cannot be updated because ADO won't know which query to update.

acperkins - thanks. i'm cleaning them up now. last 2 weeks was bad due to family emergency.
i don't understand your solution. it looks the same as my original? my original is not read-only, is it?
emoreau - dosn't UNIONed query generate one ADO resultset? you must be right, the behavior supports your explanation. so the workaround is to open another recordset with the one record and update it?

>>dosn't UNIONed query generate one ADO resultset?

Sure. All the record from all the UNIONed queries are joined together to look like a single record.

>>so the workaround is to open another recordset with the one record and update it?

I would prefer doing a direct SQL action query:
YourConnection.Execute "UPDATE TableX Set YourFieldName = YourNewValue"
