I am using Dreamweaver CS3 with asp vbs using access.mbd
When I create a recordset in a new page in DW from a table called Section and test this via recordset I get an error message:
Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 has encountered a problem and needs to close.
I replaced the table completely from scratch (same field names and details) but with the same error.
If I use a different table from the same database it runs perfectly.
I carried out a compact and repair.
The table fields are
DestionID
SectionName
DateEntered
So no resevered words I think
Any ideas what can be causing this please?
Many Thanks
John

It shouldn't just crash the whole app, have you applied the latest updates to CS3? I woul dtry that first as it may just be a bug.

Its strange its just that table. I can create recordsets for all other tables in the dbase.
When I created the new section table I did not copy the old table but created it from scratch.
The table opens perfectly in access, I created a form in Access and the data shows correctly

There are no updates for CS3.  Adobe jumped straight to CS4 without patching any of the (numerous) bugs in 3.

I've had limited success (1 of 3 tries) in getting Adobe support to approve me for a free upgrade to CS4, so you can try that route.

From what you describe, it sounds like you may be running into a reserved word that causes the application to crap out.  Try renaming the table (Section) to something else.

Thanks Jason,
Your idea about reserved word seems to be correct.
When I looked in Access Help and section was not listed I assumed it could be used.
You did not. Lateral thinking I believe thats called.
I guess thats why your a Genius and I am a Premium Service Member, and glad to be.

Thanks again

You won't get a reserved word problem in Access because I don't think Access has any reserved words.  The [table].[column] notation format removes that possibility.

However, accessing Access from a web connection is a different animal altogether.  Reserved words do come into play at that point.
