Hi all,

I downloaded this project: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/database/readdb.aspx

and I can't seem to delete a record from this DB.

When i call Open on the recordset i get this exception:

"Dynamic cursors not supported by ODBC driver."

Help anyone?
// I added this function to the project:
 
void CReadDBDlg::OnDelete() 
{
		// TODO: Add your control notification handler code here
	CDatabase database;
	CString SqlString;
	CString sCatID, sCategory;
	CString sDriver = "MICROSOFT ACCESS DRIVER (*.mdb)";
	CString sDsn;
	CString sFile = "d:\\works\\ReadDB\\Test.mdb";
	// You must change above path if it's different
	int iRec = 0; 	
	
	// Build ODBC connection string
	sDsn.Format("ODBC;DRIVER={%s};DSN='';DBQ=%s",sDriver,sFile);
 
	// Open the database
	if(!database.Open(NULL,false,false,sDsn))
		return;
 
	CRecordset rsStudentSet(&database);
 
	TRY
	{
		
	// remove student from all the classes
    // the student is enrolled in
 
		if ( !database.BeginTrans( ) )
			return;
 
		
		CString SqlString =  "SELECT CatID, Category "
				"FROM Categories WHERE CatID = 22";
 
		if ( !rsStudentSet.Open(CRecordset::dynamic    , SqlString  , CRecordset::none) )
			return;
 
        while ( !rsStudentSet.IsEOF( ) )
        {
			CString sCatID,sCategory;
 
			rsStudentSet.GetFieldValue("CatID",sCatID);
			rsStudentSet.GetFieldValue("Category",sCategory);
 
 
			AfxMessageBox(sCatID + " - " + sCategory);
 
			if(rsStudentSet.CanUpdate())
			{
				rsStudentSet.Delete( );
				rsStudentSet.MoveNext( );
			}
        }
 
        database.CommitTrans( );
    }
 
    CATCH_ALL(e)
    {
        database.Rollback( );
        return;
    }
    END_CATCH_ALL
 
    rsStudentSet.Close( );
 
    return;
 
}

Well, did you try with Static?

But why ODBC with dotNet? Because that code is dated 2001?

Create a DataTableAdapter using the native driver for OLE db and a DataTable, then all the plumbing for CRUD (create, read, update, delete) is created automatically.

CRecordset::dynamic
Isn't that telling it to use a dynamic cursor?  (See the error message).

Change that to another value (static cursor) and see if it works.



ps. There are a complete classes in MFC (CDaoRecordset...) specifically for using access databases in MFC.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Are you running Visual Studio?

A bunch of examples and learning videos for reading/updating an Access table exist. None of these, I believe, use ODBC.

?
As I said earlier - any reason you don't want to use the MFC classes specifically for access databases?

no reason, it's the only sample project i found that uses MFC & MSACCESS.

I have a project in MFC (VS6) that I need to add MS ACCESS capabilities. so i started this as a small test case for me.

If you have another example that works i would love to see it.

I haven't worked with MFC but I noticed these samples - in C++ but might be helpful anyway:

Look up CDaoDatabase, CDaoRecordset and other classes that begin with CDao in the help files.  There should be code snippets there.

There is at least one sample application and code that comes with VS6 that deals specifically with these classes.  (MFC and samples in the help file).
