After testing with a local mdb table I imported this table to sql server 2005 and linked it in access.

Now it doesn't seem to want to do the insert. What is wrong with the code below?

  Dim db As DAO.Database
    Dim RcdSet As DAO.Recordset
    
    Dim sqlErrors As String
    Set db = CurrentDb()
    sqlErrors = "Select * From tblErrorLog"
    Set RcdSet = db.OpenRecordset(sqlErrors, dbOpenDynaset)

    With RcdSet
    
        .AddNew
            !ErrorNumber = ErrEx.Number
            !ErrorDescription = ErrEx.Description
            !HostUserID = gintHostUserID
            
            ErrEx.Callstack.FirstLevel
            
            Do
                !CallStackInfo = !CallStackInfo & _
                                    ErrEx.Callstack.ProjectName & "." & _
                                    ErrEx.Callstack.ModuleName & "." & _
                                    ErrEx.Callstack.ProcedureName & ", " & _
                                    "#" & ErrEx.Callstack.LineNumber & ", " & _
                                    ErrEx.Callstack.LineCode & vbCrLf & _
                                    ErrEx.Callstack.VariablesInspector.DumpAll & vbCrLf
            Loop While ErrEx.Callstack.NextLevel
            
        .Update
        
        .Close
        
    End With
    
    Set RcdSet = Nothing

What is going wrong ?
Do you get an error message or what?


And what does this mean?
 ErrEx.Callstack.FirstLevel

it's not any vba I've ever seen.

Does tblErrorLog have a Primary Key?  It might also need a timestamp field.

yes, it has a primary key.

I'm thinking there is a typo somewhere in the code but have been staring at it too long.

You may need this:

Set RcdSet = db.OpenRecordset(sqlErrors, dbOpenDynaset, dbSeeChanges)

and, as noted, a Timestamp field.

Also, do open the linked table manually and try to add a record with data as the code would do.
