VB code accessing Lotus/Domino and pastes into SQL fails at 244 records

Posted on 2009-05-15

The error I'm getting is:
"[Lotus][ODBC LotusNotes]Data value is not a valid date, time or timestamp"

When I remove the two records that appear to be the problem it does fine.  When those two are still gone and I add a new record, it goes back to the error.  So then I removed the two bad ones, copy 2 that I saw had successfully inserted into SQL and pasted them in the Domino database and it still gives me that error.

That's making me think that it's just stopping at 244 rather than record data being bad?  I know that max query results by default in Notes are 250 and there is no max results type of wording in my connection string so that may be the issue but I'm not sure how to word that.

Any ideas would be great!

Playing with my Domino database, it turns out my VB always crashes two record short of the number that are actually in the database.  I removed a bunch of records so that I only had 106 records and it crashed on record 104 ... tested it with many variations and it always crashes 2 short of the end???

I couldn't find any reference to the max query results you mention. See this for some lilitations:
http://www-12.lotus.com/ldd/doc/notessql/3.0.2c/notessql.nsf/37bd54e7ec83e261852561560064c53a/ee0e18c1e575505c85256cf4006eb316?OpenDocument

If you are right, you could try to get rows  by blocks of 200, for instance, using LIMIT offset,rowcount

If there are still 2 rows missing, you might not have removed the problem document yet. Can you make a list of the rows you get with NotesSQL, and compare the results with the documents as displayed in the Notes view? And then inspect the documents that do not appear in NotesSQL, what are the differences?

You are right about not removing the problem.  I selected one field that I knew was populated for every record properly and it selected and inserted without issue.  T

Worked: Set rsNotes = connNotes.Execute("SELECT CompanyNo FROM Licensing_Profile")
I'll just add fields back into the working code a group at a time until I find the culprit.  (I had also remarked out all the corresponding insert statements which I'll leave that way until I get the above line working with out crashing).

Doesn't work: Set rsNotes = connNotes.Execute("SELECT * FROM Licensing_Profile")

To test it a little more, I copied all 246 documents so I had 492 documents and the altered "select" statement inserted perfectly.

Thanks!  I'm going to mark this as closed since it makes perfect sense and works like a charm with only 1 field thus proving out that the problem exists in one of the Notes fields.

By the way, it was my Lotus field named "Time" ... I probably should have looked for a reserved word field right off the bat!

Time... Maybe there was one document with a field "Time" that didn't have date/time contents?? Because, after all, it worked on the other 244 documents. Anyway, glad you found it!
