Dreamweaver MX 2004: Some page does not show recordset table, but some does.

Last Modified: 2011-10-03
Dear Experts,

  I am using Dreamweaver MX 2004 and ASP VBScript.  My site was working fine for the longest time.  However, I found out few days ago that some of my pages does not show the recordset tables and sql statements (that I have previously wrote) when I double click on Recordset under Server Behavior.  The recordset name is still preserved, but other information is gone.  If I switch to code view, all the codes regarding the recordset are still there.  Its just not showing on the GUI of recordset.  In addition, When I test the db connection, its made successful.
  This only happens on 2 of my pages.  The rest of pages are showing recordset info fine.  Any input on how to fix this problem?
Thank you very much!!!

This sounds like you manually copied and pasted the code to another location within the same page.  When you do this, you break the connection between the code and the GUI.  Although still functional, the result is the problem you are having.


Hi rbudj,
  I do move the codes around within the same page sometimes.  But, I don't recall this happened before.
However, when I was trying to recreate the site definition and trying to setup different access method, example, edit locally and test on remote server, edit on remote server and test on remote server...,  The recordset info. did show up in the GUI once yesterday.  Then, I decided to switch to different access method. The next thing is the recordset info is gone from GUI again...

  Could you share your experience when this happened to you?   Or, Any idea that I can fix this problem?

Thank you!!
