EOF and BOF

i developed a program using VB6, that deals with an access database, using mdac 2.6, now everything is ok, but when i run it on windows 89, mdac 2.6 as well i have this problem

using a select statment, when i get one output record from a table full of records, i get BOF .
while on Windows 2000 i always get (not EOF)

and in all my code am using
if not lrs.EOF then
   ......
end if

Should i change all my code to use
if (not lrs.EOF) or (not lrs.BOF) then
....
end if

or is there a different solution
Note: Windows 89 is running as a virtual machine

What exactly is the error you get and where?

print the value for lsr.eof and check.
Actually
if not lrs.EOF then
   ......
end if

is ok.

Hi..

Yur problem is nto much clear in it self. Please Clearify it Or try this with assumption that you are checking the Rescordset if it contain Data Simple do something with it...

In VB if the recordset is empty it has both BOF and EOF set to  TRUE and hence the option here to check is

if not (lrs.BOF and lrs.EOF) then
....
end if

In this if it contain data it will do your code. other wise your pointer is some where on some data and you need to reposition it according to your need with lrs.MoveLast or MoveFirst.

Hope this will help otherwise send some more clearification on topic what you want to do

well when i changed curser type to adOpenForwardOnly and when getting one output record, i got the following: BOF = False , EOF = False

other wise i get BOF = true, EOF = False

Thats is when running the application on windows 98 , i know operating system has nothing to do, but i dont know whats wring with mdac in there

when running on windows 2000 , i always get EOF = False and BOF = False

thanks any way

Hi..

It is something to do with os as it seems though i am not sure but has not much of worry as I prefer to set the pointer of the data to my wish when ever i create or Fill data in recordset using the movefirst and movelast so it work my way and not os way.

Thank for Answer acceptance though.
