Invalid precision value - ASP insert into Access DB

Hi

I am getting the following error:

Error Type:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80040E21)
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]Invalid precision value
/hr_v1.00/wz_emp_paydet_ins_1.asp, line 40

This is from a page that was built using the Macromedia Record Update Form Wizard.  I created a recordset to select the appropriate record using a Session variable referencing the primary key of table EMP.  Then I selected the DB Table EMP and the appropriate fields to be updated in the wizard.  When the page tries to do the update I get the error above.  The EMP.PayRate and EMP.StdHours fields are currency fields in an access DB but I only get the option to return Numeric values in the wizard.  Please can anyone provide a possible solution/workaround?

Ok, I think it has something to do with the paramters section of your query:

    Set MM_editCmd = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Command")
    MM_editCmd.ActiveConnection = MM_HRDB_STRING
    MM_editCmd.CommandText = "UPDATE EMP SET PayFreq = ?, PayMeth = ?, PayRate = ?, StdHours = ?, NiNo = ? WHERE EmpNo = ?"
    MM_editCmd.Prepared = true
    MM_editCmd.Parameters.Append MM_editCmd.CreateParameter("param1", 202, 1, -1, Request.Form("PayFreq")) ' adVarWChar
    MM_editCmd.Parameters.Append MM_editCmd.CreateParameter("param2", 202, 1, -1, Request.Form("PayMeth")) ' adVarWChar
    MM_editCmd.Parameters.Append MM_editCmd.CreateParameter("param3", 5, 1, 6, MM_IIF(Request.Form("PayRate"), Request.Form("PayRate"), null)) ' adDouble
    MM_editCmd.Parameters.Append MM_editCmd.CreateParameter("param4", 5, 1, 6, MM_IIF(Request.Form("StdHours"), Request.Form("StdHours"), null)) ' adDouble
    MM_editCmd.Parameters.Append MM_editCmd.CreateParameter("param5", 202, 1, 9, Request.Form("NiNo")) ' adVarWChar
    MM_editCmd.Parameters.Append MM_editCmd.CreateParameter("param6", 5, 1, -1, MM_IIF(Request.Form("MM_recordId"), Request.Form("MM_recordId"), null)) ' adDouble
    MM_editCmd.Execute
    MM_editCmd.ActiveConnection.Close

When you have numerics, you have to specify more parameters. Here is an example:

      Set prmNumNumberNeeded = objCommand.CreateParameter
      With prmNumNumberNeeded
            .Name="@numNumberNeeded"
            .Direction = adParamInput
            .NumericScale = 2
            .Precision = 10
            .Size = 19
            .Type = adNumeric
            .Value = Request.Form("numNumberNeeded")
      End With

Hi jrram

Line 40 is the MM_editCmd.Execute statement in the parameters section.




Hi Fritz the blank

I'm afraid ASP is far from my first language and I am not entirely sure how your code example fits in with my code.  Can you please elaborate.

Sure. If your parameter is an integer, then your parameter looks pretty simple:

MM_editCmd.Parameters.Append MM_editCmd.CreateParameter.CreateParameter("@intsomeIntegerField",adInteger,adParamInput ,,varSomeIntegerValue)


However, if your value is a non-integer numeric, then you need to specify further parameters like this:

Set prmNumNumberNeeded = MM_editCmd.Parameters.CreateParameter
With prmNumNumberNeeded
  .Name="@numNumberNeeded"
  .Direction = adParamInput
  .NumericScale = 2
  .Precision = 10
  .Size = 19
  .Type = adNumeric
  .Value = Request.Form("numNumberNeeded")
End With
MM_editCmd.Parameters.Append prmNumGoalPerformanceRating

So, the first step is to look at your table and determine the data type of your fields involved in this operation, and then supply the necessary parameter details for those fields that are not integer.
