Hello All;

 I receive the following error through my ASP page.
==============================================
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e14'

The text, ntext, or image data type cannot be selected as DISTINCT.

/BS/Connections/i_utils.asp, line 51
==============================================

This is the code:
==============================================
==============
sSQL = "SELECT distinct A.*, B.CatID, B.Cat, " & _
        " (SELECT COUNT(1) FROM Cats WHERE A.CatTypeID=Cats.CatTypeID) AS ParentCount, " & _
        " (SELECT COUNT(1) FROM Content WHERE B.CatID=Content.CatID) AS ChildCount " & _
        " FROM (CatTypes A LEFT JOIN Cats B ON A.CatTypeID = B.CatTypeID) " & _
        " LEFT JOIN Content C on B.CatID = C.CatID " 
Srs.Open sSQL, Bconn, 1, 3, 1      ' Line 51 is here
==============
==============================================
The FieldName and Data Types are:
CatID = bigint
CatTypeID = int
Cat = varchar

=======
As you can see, none of the Field's Data Types are of "text, ntext (or) Image"

Any idea's on this one?

Thanks All;

Well you are doing a select a.*

so what are the columns in the CatTypes? There is a text/ntext or image in one of those columns I am willing to bet.

script your CatTypes table and show it here. I bet you will see the column right there.

Oh man. That was sweet.

So it was looking at the entire Table of CatTypes. since it was the a.*
I will be darn,
Thanks a bunch.
It was the
CatType - text
I changed it to:
CatType - varchar.

You rock.
Thanks you
