ERROR "The connection cannot be used to perform this operation. It is either closed or invalid in this context.".  

==================CODE====================================

            rs = New ADODB.Recordset
            rs.CursorLocation = rs.CursorLocation.adUseClient
            rs.CursorType = rs.CursorType.adOpenForwardOnly
            If intMaxRecords > 0 Then
                rs.MaxRecords = intMaxRecords
            End If
            rs.StayInSync = False
            rs.Open(strSQL, vConn.mDBConn, ADODB.CursorTypeEnum.adOpenStatic, rs.LockType.adLockOptimistic)

===============================================================================


The VS.Net is giving me error at the last line.  I have open the connection using ADODB interface.

make sure vConn.mDBConn has been defined correctly and is not busy with some other result set before this point.  try vConn.mDBConn.Open before the block you pasted

Check the Stat property before opening reord set
Record set oopening will work only if Stat is eqa;s to ConnectionState.Open

One of the factor of this problem is a concurrent connection attempt. Either a current connection is still open. Im not quite familiar with RecordSets but the code stated might be under LOOP block the error will occur. Anyway check also ur strSQL variable, and nothing wrong with double check it.

Good Luck

how long are you keeping your connection open.
is your app off doing something else.
depending on your back end it may have terminated the connection because it was idle to long.
