Hi , im using ASP with VBScript and Mysql

I didnt have a problem when the db was MS access but now have started using it with MySQL..

This is Code for record set...

rs.CursorType = 3
rs.Open strSCat, strConn
rc = rs.RecordCount
response.write rc

Rc value giving me "-1" every time....

Have tried using

rs.Open strSCat, strConn,3,3
rc = rs.RecordCount
response.write rc

but get

2 (This is the value which is correct!)
Microsoft Cursor Engine error '80004005'

Key column information is insufficient or incorrect. Too many rows were affected by update.

/category.asp, line 73


any ideas?

Cheers

Stephen

Do you have an index/primary key on the MySQL version of the table?

I have seen this also with Primary key defined on datatype where ADO/DAO could not work on correctly (ie .Oracle Timestamp column). What is the table's definition?

Anyhow, this should work better:
rs.Open strSCat, strConn,1,3

or this:
rs.CursorType = 1
rs.LockType = 3
rs.Open strSCat, strConn
rc = rs.RecordCount
response.write rc

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

are you using CursorLocation = adUseClient??

rs.CursorLocation = adUseClient

ADO will always return -1 when CursorLocation is set to adUseServer

Are you still having this problem?  Did you try the CursorLocation fix I suggested?
