I get a runtime error 3251 Current Recordset does not support updating.  This may be a limitation of the provider or of the selected locktype.

The following is the code I am using to call the stored proc.:

Dim rstProgram As ADODB.Recordset
Dim m_cmd As New ADODB.Command

Set rstProgram = New ADODB.Recordset

With m_cmd
    .ActiveConnection = conSQL
    .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
    .CommandText = "sp_AllProgram"       ' Stored Procedure name.
End With

Set rstProgram = m_cmd.Execute
rstProgram.MoveFirst

 With rstProgram
        .AddNew                                'HERE IS WHERE I GET THE ERROR
          ......
          ......


What am i doing wrong?

You cannot update a sp like this. This is a Server Side Cursor. Instead of a SP use a View.

PS:

Server side cursors i.e. dynasets should not in general be used in multiuser environments. In fact every single DBA I have ever met would disembowel me for unleashing one on their database.

I am not familiar with views...How would I set up a view, call it from vb and update records?

Have I misunderstood what you are trying to acheive?

Are you  trying to add new rows into the database, or just add extra records into your recordset?

Instead of using the AddNew method of the Recordset, you could use the "INSERT INTO TableName..." syntax to insert data into the databases. These statements can be executed using YourConnnection.Execute

hi JoannieJefferson

u cannto do what u r trying to achiev using a Stored Procu\dure in this fashion..

if u want to use the stored procedure to insert data into the table for that u need to

pass parameters to the SP which will be the values u want to insert into the database..

for eg.

'here is ur procedure u created in SQL server..

Create Proc abc1(p1,p2,p3)
  insert into table t1 values(p1,p2,p3)
end proc

here is ur code in VB...

str1 = "abc1('" & Item1 & "','" & Item2 & "',"' & Item3 & "'")

conSQL.Execute str1

Here is a sample procedure:

CREATE PROCEDURE sp_Report  @ProgramID nchar(20), @dtStartDate datetime , @dtEndDate datetime
AS

SELECT T1.x,T2.z,T2.y
FROM TABLE1
INNER JOIN TABLE2
ON T1.TABLE1ID = T2.TABLE2ID
WHERE (((T1.TABLE1.ID)=@ProgramId)
AND ((T2.TABLE2Date)> @StartDate)
AND ((T2.TABLE2Date)< @EndDate)
ORDER BY TABLE1.CardHolderLastName
GO


1. I want to know how to call this procedure (sp_Report) from VB and pass the parameters to this procedure.
2. Can I use the recordset to update or add new records to the table?  If so how?
3. What is the best way for me to achieve what i am trying to do using store procedures?
