MFC, CRecordset::PrepareAndExecute() Error using MSSQL-Sever-2005

Posted on 2010-08-15
Last Modified: 2013-11-20


I connect to an MSSQL DB 2005
Connection to DSN used in CDatabase Tested Ok.

Before I insert rec to the DB table I open the a CRecordset with

CRecordset::Open(nOpenType, ssQueryStr, dwOptions);

nOpenType = CRecordset::dynaset
ssQueryStr = select * from mytable where 1 = 0   // returns no records
dwOptions = 0
(with plan to call AddNew() and Update() later)

But this throws exception in CRecordset::PrepareAndExecute() at

// now attempt to execute the SQL Query if not executed already
if (!(m_dwOptions & executeDirect))
    if (!Check(nRetCode))

This had worked before.

Please any suggestion to the cause, solution or workarround to this problem?

Are you passing values that would allow a record to be added?

eg.  Passing null to a required field would result in a failure

I am not passing any null.

nOpenType = CRecordset::dynaset = 0
ssQueryStr = select * from mytable where 1 = 0   // returns no records
dwOptions = 0

are passed to

CRecordset::Open(nOpenType, ssQueryStr, dwOptions);

I don't think you understood.
For example:
Say the table has three fields (columns) that are required.  Just setting two fields to values then attempting to update will result in an error.

Check the values you are attempting to add to the table - are they valid for the field types expected ?  Are any required fields not being given values ?

Thanks guys. This was fixed by the database init configurations params. One thing I did to fix this was to specify default DB on the host. Strange.
