Hi,

I have a grid connected to an ADO dataset. Then i select a record and i click on a button so that i do something with the details of that record. Is there a way to refresh the details only for  the selected record without using requery or another query to get them? Because I dont want to refresh lets say 1000 records, just to see the updated details of the one am really interested in.

Thanks in advance

Well if you update via the dataset you are using, the information will be refreshed on screen anyway.
If you are using a totally separate query object to do the updating then you will need to reload the dataset.

try this:
ADOQuery1.Recordset.Resync(adAffectCurrent, adResyncAllValues);

should refresh current record

or if you using clientdataset, there is special method to do it:

ClientDataSet1.RefreshRecord

run SQL profiler and call standard .Refresh then check with profiler what sql command has been executed, it's quite possible that not all records will be refetched but only changed ones

I am sorry but i didnt quite understand how this will help me fix the problem. I run SQL Profiler and saw the command. But i dont know why i get that error message in my application and how i can remove it.

call ADOQuery1.Refresh; and see into profiler if the complete select statement is executed or is there something in where clausule that limits output to only changed records

I get the same error message even with refresh <insufficient key column information for updating or refreshing>. So at the sql profiler i cannot see anything because refresh is not executed due to the error.

if you got this errro it means that it's not possible to uniqually identify changed record, in this case you can try method suggested by meikl or call .Close then .Open on ADOQuery but I guess both methods will result with re-fetching all records

insufficient key column is probably because you do not have primary key (index) assigned).
I agree with Michael (Wellcome back Meikl !) - Requeery works miracles with ADO:

Do a primary key on some unique record and it will do the trick.Dont refresh as requery is much better.
also you should think about using sql access server components (msconnection instead of adoconnection).They actually do what you are trying to do.Really fantastic with sql server 2005.
you can have thousands of records but they get updated in a blink of an eye...
