I have a challenge with an Access program. I have a SQL backend, and I have one form (just one) that is causing an error:

    Dim strLogon As String
    Dim strSQL As String
    Dim rstRS As Recordset
    strLogon = Me!Logon
    strSQL = "SELECT * FROM tblUsers ORDER BY UserInitials"
    Me.RecordSource = strSQL
    Set rstRS = Me.Recordset.Clone
    rstRS.FindFirst "[Logon] = '" & strLogon & "'"
    Me.Bookmark = rstRS.Bookmark
    DoCmd.GotoRecord acActiveDataObject, , acNext
    Me.AllowAdditions = False
    Me.AllowEdits = False

The line that causes the error is here:

    Me.RecordSource = strSQL

I get an error about using dbSeeChanges when using OpenRecordset in a table that has an identity column. Now the REALLY weird part is that my table doesn't HAVE an identitiy column. I am totally unsure of what is causing this issue.

The error is coming from SQL, and then it proceeds with all my other code.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
