"Rowset does not support fetching backward"

Hi,

The following snippet of code results in error "Rowset does not support fetching backward", in particular the .MoveLast line.

Does anybody see why?

The 2 key elements I am after here are 1) setting the CursorType to adOpenStatic in order to have the RecordCount be set, and 2) use CopyFromRecordSet (b/c I find it very convenient)

Thank you in advance for your advice.

Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    rs.CursorType = adOpenStatic
   
    With rs
        .ActiveConnection = cn
        Dim sql As String
        .Open "exec sproc " 'sql
        Sheet4.Range("A" & CStr(FIRST_ROW)).CopyFromRecordset rs
        .MoveLast
        recCnt = rs.RecordCount
        ' MsgBox "Rec Cnt " + CStr(rs.RecordCount)
        .Close
    End With
   
    cn.Close
    Set rs = Nothing
    Set cn = Nothing

Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    rs.CursorType = adOpenStatic
    
    With rs
        .ActiveConnection = cn
        Dim sql As String
        .Open "exec sproc " 'sql
        Sheet4.Range("A" & CStr(FIRST_ROW)).CopyFromRecordset rs
        .MoveLast
        recCnt = rs.RecordCount
        ' MsgBox "Rec Cnt " + CStr(rs.RecordCount)
        .Close
    End With
    
    cn.Close
    Set rs = Nothing
    Set cn = Nothing

will consume your recordset.
you probably don't need the .movelast at all...

CursorLocation = clientSide did the trick.
