VB6 Recordset is empty when records exist in my View because of Group By

Hi
I'm programming with VBA for Excel, and I have a SELECT instruction that returns -1 RecordCount.

Here is my Slect Instruction :
RsPortes.Open "Select SONumber, NumSection, Qty, UniteMesure, ItemNumber, ItemName, DFTPICKINGLISTOPR FROM V_Portes WHERE V_Portes.SONumber='" & NumJob & "'", MaConnectionAxaptaData, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic

The V_Portes is an SqlServer2005 view that is build with a Group By, it is working fine and getting the right results.

How can I get my recordset lines within VBA Excel code ?

Thanks

RsPortes.RecordCount is unreliable when you use adOpenDynamic.

If you just need to see whether there are rows, use RsPortes.EOF.

You can change to an adOpenStatic and adLockReadOnly and get RecordCount to behave -- assuming you don't need to write back to the recordset.

>that returns -1 RecordCount
that happens because you open on ServerSide instead of ClientSide cursor location, usually.

anyhow, do you really need the recordcount itself, or just if there are records or not => use bof and eof instead.

And in case you did not get the message:  The RecordCount property should not be used.

When I needed to get the RcordCount value of my Cursor I changed for adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly and I was able to get the right value
Thanks for everybody
