I have a macro that works fine, and then we did a MS sql process to add one row of data that we were looking for....that originally wasnt there..

this updated row occured in the MS SQL ..the macro has not changed/nor touched..

Now when the macro is run, I get the above error when trying to run.  The error occurs only on this new row that was just added to the ms sql....
the other data pulling from ms sql is fine.  

I am thinking that when the row/data was added that they either removed the NO SET COUNTS or something occurred when that row was added...or the row is LOCKED...

I am aware that the error has to do with not closing a recordset before accessing it again, but that applies to all the data..not just one row-unless its locked.

I believe the way to resolve this issue is to have the MS SQL side addressed not the excel macro....the row has to be unlocked from the MS SQL side correct?....

does the row need to be committed?

... or, are you not using the (nolock) hint in the query?

As far as committing...the macro only queries data...nothing permanent here...
