Getting Identity of row inserted id MS SQL database

I am trying to get the identity of a record added with an ado dataset the sql in the dataset is :-

Insert into Timetran
(casecode, personno, date .........)
Values
(:ccode , :pno, :tdate, ................)
select @@IDENTITY as 'Ident'

when I then open the adoDataset and try to get the value of the Identity with
adoDataset.fieldbyname('ident').asinteger returns 'Field not found'

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

Divide that in two separate sql executions:

Insert into Timetran
(casecode, personno, date .........)
Values
(:ccode , :pno, :tdate, ................)

using a TADOQuery or TADOCommand and

select @@IDENTITY as 'Ident'

in your TADODataset

Dosn't that leave the posability of the identity being incremented by another user in between the two operations?

select @@IDENTITY as 'Ident'
should be
select @@IDENTITY as Ident
I think. And these two components (ADOQuery and ADODataset) should use the same TADOConnection component without closing the connection in between the two calls.

@@IDENTITY is in the scope of your current session and therefore can't interfere with other users.
