I am trying to update a SQL Server table through VBA coding which keeps erroring.  Ihave created a test example of coding that is being used:

    Dim DB As Database, stSQL As String, RS As Recordset
    Set DB = CurrentDb()
    stSQL = "Select * From tblName;"
    Set RS = DB.OpenRecordset(stSQL)
   
    RS.AddNew
        RS("[Name1]") = Me![Text1]
        RS("[Name2]") = Me![Text3]
        RS("[Name3]") = Me![Text5]
    RS.Update
I receive the error
"You must use the dbSeeChanges option with OpenRecorset when accessing a SQL Server table that has a IDENTITY column."
Thanks

try this change:

from:

    Dim DB As Database, stSQL As String, RS As Recordset
    Set DB = CurrentDb()
    stSQL = "Select * From tblName;"
    Set RS = DB.OpenRecordset(stSQL)
   
    RS.AddNew
        RS("[Name1]") = Me![Text1]
        RS("[Name2]") = Me![Text3]
        RS("[Name3]") = Me![Text5]
    RS.Update


to:

    Dim DB As Database, stSQL As String, RS As Recordset
    Set DB = CurrentDb()
    stSQL = "Select * From tblName;"
    Set RS = DB.OpenRecordset(stSQL,,dbSeeChanges )'  the [Options] parameter is 'optional', and is the SECOND optional parameter, hence the ,, to skip the first of the optional parameters
   
    RS.AddNew
        RS("[Name1]") = Me![Text1]
        RS("[Name2]") = Me![Text3]
        RS("[Name3]") = Me![Text5]
    RS.Update


you can also change the line:

 Set RS = DB.OpenRecordset(stSQL)

like this:

 Set RS = DB.OpenRecordset(stSQL, options:=dbSeeChanges )

both lines do EXACTLY the same thing, your choice.

I suspect that this is becasuse sqlserver is trying to incremeent the ID field, but cant becuase its being updated through a recordset.

Just to be sure, try this code (which uses ADO) via a linked table in access

Dim strSQL As String
Dim cnn As ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

stSQL = "Select * From tblName;"

'Create connection.
    Set cnn = CurrentProject.Connection
               
'Open recordset
    With rs
        Set .ActiveConnection = cnn
        .Source = strSQL
        .LockType = adLockOptimistic
        .CursorType = adOpenForwardOnly
        .Open
        .AddNew
        ![Name1] = =me.Text1
        ![Name2] = =me.Text2
        ![Name3] = =me.Text3
        .Update
    End With

    rs.Close
    Set rs = Nothing
    cnn.Close
    Set cnn = Nothing

Private Sub SomeSub()

Dim stgrSQL as String
strSQL = "INSERT INTO TableName ( Name1, Name2, Name3 ) Values('" & Me![Text1] & "','" & Me![Text2] & "','" & Me![Text3] &"')"

Docmd.SetWarnings False
DoCmd.RunSQL strSQL
Docmd.SetWarnings True

Exit Sub

The comment from capricorn1 about 'too slow' was because his answer FOLLOWED mine (which was ALMOST identical), and he was saying the he was 'too slow' in submitting his answer, since it was almost a duplicate of mine.

My appologies.  I did not see Arthur_Wood's comment.  Please do reopen this question so that the point can be awarded correctly.  Prior to reading capricorn1's comment I had answered my own question but since the answer came in while I was working on the problem I still awarded the points.  Since both answers are correct point can be devided among both individuals.

Thank you both.  Those were just the points I needed to go out and buy my new Jag XKE (LOL---Don't I wish)

Thanks again, for the recognition.
