ADO Transaction Error:  Cannot create new transaction because capacity was exceeded.

I'm using an ADO connection object in my VB6 app to connect to a SQL Server 2000 database.  The connection works fine (I'm able to use the connection to populate recordsets, etc.), but when I try to call ADOcon.BeginTrans, it raises the error "Cannot create new transaction because capacity was exceeded."  I have no other open transactions at the time of the error.  I've searched the web and found minimal support on this error, and the few things I found did not solve my problem (increasing the database and transaction log sizes was the main one).

Any ideas?

Though I haven't had this problem before, I did a quick search on it, and the most popular idea seems to be to set the cursor location to adUseClient.

Thanks for the link.  I've actually already looked at that link a couple of times.  However, it made me think a little more about that aspect, and I found an additional recordset that was open using that connection that was using a server-side cursor rather than a client-side cursor, and that was causing the problem.

Thanks again.
