ADO Recordset Updates ?

I have an ADO recordset, and here is how I set it up:
Dim oConnection As New ADODB.Connection
Dim oRecordset As New ADODB.Recordset
sConnectString = "DSN=Quickbooks Data;OLE DB Services=-2;"
oConnection.Open(sConnectString)
oRecordset.Open(sSQL, oConnection, ADODB.CursorTypeEnum.adOpenKeyset, ADODB.LockTypeEnum.adLockOptimistic)

oRecordset.AddNew()
Orecordset.Fields("Name").value = "xxxxx"
Orecordset.Update

Now here I would like to get the value of the key that is created

x = oRecordSet.Field("ListID").value

But oRecordSet.Field("ListID").value returns Nothing.
If I break here and I query it I will find that the ListID does have a value.

How can i have this oRecordset show me the value of ListID ?

Try this:
Change tblName to your table name.

        Dim strSQL As String = "SET NOCOUNT ON INSERT INTO tblName(Name) VALUES('xxxxx') SELECT @@IDENTITY AS NewID SET NOCOUNT OFF"
        oConnection.Open(sConnectString)
        oRecordset = oConnection.Execute(strSQL)
        Dim varNewID As Integer = oRecordset("NewID").Value
        oConnection.Close()

Open in new window

When it hits the Execute(strSQL) I get this error

These all seem quite laborious since in MS Access when connecting to SQL Server I was able to just read the key right after the recordset.Update. Maybe this has something do with with this driver/database which is different... I do know that this key is not a numeric. But it for sure does get produced as soon as I do the .Update cause I am able to retrieve it by calling another function that will query that record, but this is slow and I'm doing many records so I would like to avoid that.
