Hi

I am trying to get the last ID entered using the code below
and at the line   varID = .Execute()
the variable varID seems to be blank even though there is no error
How do I get the integer value of the last ID ?

Public Sub oAppend(ByVal oDate As Date, ByVal oText As String, ByVal oNumber As Single)
 
    Dim oSQL As String
    
    On Error GoTo EH
    
    Set con = New ADODB.Connection
    
    con.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=196.220.43.247,1444;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Initial Catalog=test;User ID=mu;Password=ct3;"

    Set cmd = New ADODB.Command

    'Check last ID ---------------------------
    
    Dim oSQL_lastID As String
    oSQL_lastID = "SELECT MAX(ID) FROM Table1"

    
    Dim varID As Variant
    Dim intID As String
    
    With cmd
        .CommandText = oSQL_lastID
        .CommandType = adCmdText
        .ActiveConnection = con
        '.Execute
        varID = .Execute() 'varID is blank
    End With
    intID = CStr(varID) 'Error here
    '------------------------------------------

As I said http:Q_27301456.html#a36516694 the .Execute() is returning a Recordset; therefore, you have to use it as such.

i.e., try: Set rs = .Execute()
varID = rs(0)
0
