I can find anyting to on how to re-write this.  this code is below

Public Function Clone(ByVal objRecordset As ADODB.Recordset, Optional ByVal LockType As ADODB.LockTypeEnum = ADODB.LockTypeEnum.adLockBatchOptimistic) As ADODB.Recordset
        Dim objNewRS As New ADODB.Recordset
        Dim objField As Object
        Dim lngCnt As Long
        On Error GoTo LocalError
        objNewRS.CursorLocation = ADODB.CursorLocationEnum.adUseClient
        objNewRS.LockType = LockType
        For Each objField In objRecordset.Fields
            objNewRS.Fields.Append(objField.Name, objField.Type, objField.DefinedSize, objField.Attributes)
        Next objField
        If Not objRecordset.RecordCount = 0 Then
            objNewRS.ActiveConnection = objRecordset.ActiveConnection
            While Not objRecordset.EOF
                For lngCnt = 0 To objRecordset.Fields.Count - 1
                    objNewRS.Fields(lngCnt).Value = objRecordset.Fields(lngCnt).Value
                Next lngCnt
            End While
        End If
        Clone = objNewRS
        Exit Function
        m_sLastError = Err.Number & " - " & Err.Description

Hello keptins,

The best solution would be to rewrite the whole shooting match with ADO.Net (not ADODB methods).

Now I realise that at this point you probably don't want to do that so the solution is to use the relevant values (either numerical ones or from the relevant enum).

If objNewRS.State = System.Data.ConnectionState.Open Then

And so on.

I'm hoping to learn ADO.net in the very near future...do you recommend any books?
