For the life of me I cannot rember how to edit data in an ADODB recordset.  The code so far is:

Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

Set cn = CurrentProject.Connection

Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
With rs
    Set .ActiveConnection = cn
    .Source = "SELECT tblTraining.TrainingType FROM tblTraining"
    .LockType = adLockOptimistic
    .CursorType = adOpenKeyset
    .Open
End With

'Edit recordset here.

rs.Close
cn.Close

oh...wait...that won't work...you're not spcifying which record to edit
...need a WHERE clause

    .Source = "SELECT tblTraining.TrainingType FROM tblTraining where ID= " & me!someID

SidFishes,

That is what was throwing me.  I get an "Object or Data Member not found error when I try to use the "rs.edit" command.



LSMConsulting,

I need to edit the text.  This appears to add a new item to my list.


This is being developed in Access 2000 if that makes a difference.

This might be harder than I thought.  I'm uping the points to 75.

have you checked to make sure you've got your ado reference set...code window/tools/references

look for Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.1 library

ADODB.Recordsets don't expose a .Edit property or method ... DAO does, but not ADODB.

No ... the code supplied above edits the current record. if you want to add a new item to an ADODB.Recordset then you issue an .AddNew before setting the recordset values:

rs.AddNew
rs("Field1") = value1
rs("Field2") = value2
etc etc
rs.update

However, as Sid pointed out, you probably want to filter your recordsets with a WHERE clause, otherwise you have no idea which record you've returned.
