Experts,

So I have a Javascript function that I am using to connect to MS Access 2007 dynamically using HTML DOM. Whenever I reach the end of the record set and I move to the previous record, I get an error:

"Rowset does not support fetching backward." Please help fix it!
function fnLoad()	{ 
  strConnect = "DSN=QTPDSN";
  oConn = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Connection");
  oConn.Open(strConnect);
  rs.CursorType = adOpenDynamic;
  rs.LockType = adLockPessimistic;
  rs.CursorLocation = adUseClient;
  rs=oConn.Execute("SELECT * from PolicyInfo where RCApplied = '" + gRCApplied + "'");
  rs.MoveLast; 
}

Open in new window

The recordset that .Execute returns will only be read-only with a forward-only cursor.  You will want to use the .Open method of the Recordset object, then you will be able to control the .CursorType etc. (like you are attempting to do) in order to get the ability to traverse forward and backward.

PS> Why the .MoveLast?

Example line of code (note I am not a Java programmer .. so cut some slack please :) :

function fnLoad()      {
  strConnect = "DSN=QTPDSN";
  oConn = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Connection");
  rs = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Recordset");
  oConn.Open(strConnect);
  rs.ActiveConnectio = oConn;
  rs.CursorType = adOpenDynamic;
  rs.LockType = adLockPessimistic;
  rs.CursorLocation = adUseClient;
  rs.Source = "SELECT * from PolicyInfo where RCApplied = '" + gRCApplied + "'";
  rs.Open;
  rs.MoveLast;
}

Also, note that you can pass several arguments in the .Open method ... here is the prototype for the .Open method:

recordset.Open Source, ActiveConnection, CursorType, LockType, Options

This ...
rs.ActiveConnectio = oConn

Should be ...
rs.ActiveConnection = oConn

That "Air Code" debugger is not so good at catching typos! :)
