Using ODBC to export from Lotus Notes 5 to Access.  Strange error when updating row.

Last Modified: 2013-12-25

I have written a scheduled agent which exports or updates data from Lotus Notes to Access.   The first time the agent runs, data is exported without any trouble.  On subsequent runs, I get an error when trying to update a row.

The error is
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error in query expression 'FisherSiteCode = Pa_RaM000  AND Machine = Pa_RaM001  AND Position = Pa_RaM002  AND FabricDesignCode = Pa_RaM003  AND 10_Qty = Pa_RaM004  AND 10_VolumeOrWeight = Pa_RaM005  AND 10_ValueEuro = Pa_RaM006  AND 10_ValueLocal = Pa_RaM007  AND 10_Currency IS NULL A'.

The query I'm using looks nothing like that, and the error is occuring not when the query is executed, but later, when I call UpdateRow on the result set.

The central part of the code is below.  I did not include the subroutines, but the subroutine that runs before the error runs just fine the first time the code is run.  

Thanks in advance.

      Dim doc As NotesDocument
      Set doc = dc.GetFirstDocument
      Dim x As Integer
      While Not doc Is Nothing
            x = x + 1
            If x > 15 Goto EndOfLoop
            'set query
            qry.SQL = {SELECT * FROM } & sTableName & { where FisherSiteCode= '} & doc.FisherSiteCode(0) & _
            {' and Machine='} & doc.Machine(0) & {' and Position='} & doc.Position(0) & {' and FabricDesignCode='} & doc.FabricDesignCode(0) & {'}
            Call GLog.LogAction (qry.SQL)            
            Set qry.Connection = con
            Set result.Query = qry
            'If row already exists, just add current QLF data
            If result.IsResultSetAvailable Then
                  Call ExportQLFData (result, doc, iMonth)
                  Call result.UpdateRow 'ERROR OCCURS HERE
lRowsUpdated = lRowsUpdated + 1
            'If row does not exist, export all the data, then export the current QLF data
                  Call result.AddRow            
                  Call ExportForecastData (result, doc)                  
                  Call ExportQLFData (result, doc, iMonth)
                  Call result.UpdateRow
                  lRowsAdded = lRowsAdded + 1
            End If
            'purges the data in the result set
            Call result.Close
            Set doc = dc.GetNextDocument (doc)
Watch Question

what does Call ExportQLFData (result, doc, iMonth)  do?


That sub just takes data from the Notes document and puts it specific columns.  Sometimes it has to do a calculation first.

Here it is:

Sub ExportQLFData (result As ODBCResultSet, doc As NotesDocument, iMonth As Integer)
      On Error Goto RecordError
      'Last updated Nov 2006
      Const GBP = 1.470588235

      Const CAD = 0.689655172
      Const CNY = 0.1
      Const JPY = 0.007142857
      Const AUD = 0.625
      Const MYR = 0.002222222
      Const INR = 0.00018182
      'Set quantity
      Call result.SetValue ( iMonth & "_Qty", GetIntegerValue ("tq", doc) )
      'Set Local Value
      Dim dLocalValue As Double
      dLocalValue = GetDoubleValue ("tva", doc)
      Call result.SetValue ( iMonth & "_ValueLocal", dLocalValue )
      'Set Currency      
      Dim sCurrency As String
      sCurrency = GetStringValue ("Currency", 3, doc)
      Call result.SetValue ( iMonth & "_Currency", sCurrency )
      'Set Value in Euros
      Dim dEuroValue As Double
      Select Case sCurrency
      Case "GBP":
            dEuroValue = dLocalValue * GBP
      Case "CHF":
            dEuroValue = dLocalValue * CHF
      Case "NOK":
            dEuroValue = dLocalValue * NOK
      Case "SEK":
            dEuroValue = dLocalValue * SEK

            dEuroValue = dLocalValue * USD
      Case "CAD":
            dEuroValue = dLocalValue * CAD
      Case "CNY":
            dEuroValue = dLocalValue * CNY
      Case "JPY":
            dEuroValue = dLocalValue * JPY
      Case "AUD":
            dEuroValue = dLocalValue * AUD
      Case "MYR":
            dEuroValue = dLocalValue * MYR
      Case "INR":
            dEuroValue = dLocalValue * INR
      Case "EUR":
            dEuroValue = dLocalValue
      Case Else:
            Call GLog.LogAction ("Unrecognized currency:  " & sCurrency)
      End Select
      Call result.SetValue ( iMonth & "_ValueEuro", dEuroValue )
      'Set weight or volume
      Dim d As Double 'the value from the document
      Dim dFinal As Double 'the converted value for the spreadsheet
      Select Case doc.ProductLine(0)
      Case "Press":
            d = GetDoubleValue ("TWT", doc)
            If doc.MeasurementUnits(0) = "Metric" Then
                  dFinal = d
                  dFinal = d/2.20462
            End If
      Case "Forming", "Dryer":
            d = GetDoubleValue ("TVO", doc)
            If doc.MeasurementUnits(0) = "Metric" Then
                  dFinal = d
                  dFinal = d/10.76391
            End If
      End Select
      Call result.SetValue ( iMonth & "_VolumeOrWeight", dFinal )
      Exit Sub
      Dim sError As String
      Dim iLine As Integer
      sError = Error$
      iLine = Erl
      Resume ReportError
      On Error Goto 0
      Error 20001, "ERROR ExportQLFData Line " & Cstr(iLine) & ":  " & sError
End Sub

if you expect just a single row call result.LastRow or result.FirstRow before setting the values and calling the updaterow. otherwise move to the row which you want to update and call updaterow.
