Closed dataset error

Everytime I use the SalesLogix client to connect to the database I get a "Cannot perform this operation on a closed dataset"

Any ideas on how to get the client to connect to the database.

We are using Windows 2000 server and SQL 2000

Hi pbraden,

This is probably the Set NOCOUNT OFF issue. If you have a complex stored procedure which performs more than a single select, you may get more than one dataset result returned. These results contain the messages that you would normally see in query analyzer and not the data you expect to see (well one of the datasets returned does, just not necessarily the first).

There are basically two ways to resolve the issue, either from your client you need to use .NextRecordset or .NextResult or whatever equivalent method is available in your client. Or you change the stored procedure that you are calling and add "SET NOCOUNT OFF" before the code that is executed in the SP. This latter option suppresses these messages and allows the data to be returned in the first resultset.

Tim,

I think you mean SET NOCOUNT ON.  Otherwise we have the default and messages will be displayed.  It is after all a double-negative :)

Most definitely, did not mean to steal your thunder, I just wish Microsoft had called it SET COUNT OFF :)
