Operation not allowed when the object is closed

We are using a Delphi TClientDataSet to propagate changes from a local database to a remote SQL Server on our website server.  We open the set of records on the local database and open a ClientDataSet with the data from SQL Server.  We compare the two and update the ClientDataSet where required.  These changes are then applied back to the SQL Server database by calling ApplyUpdates.  This has been working fine for a while , but now we are getting the error

Operation not allowed when the object is closed

when attempting to call ApplyUpdates on the ClientDataSet.  No changes have been made to the code or the local environment and we are getting the same error in the development site and on the client's site.

Any ideas!! We are using Delphi 6 and a TADOConnection to the SQLServer, running under Windows 7 Prof 32 bit.

Do you use TSocketConnection component?
Check for property Connected of TSocketConnection before do Apply.

ste5an: We're at the cutting edge of antiquated IDEs, besides, we have a long and fruitful relationship.  <Afaik this error means that the connection is no longer active/valid.>  We gathered that from the message, my question is why has this now started happening, presumable some change at the SQL Server end.  Are there any ADO connection parameters or additional code that will get around this.  My understanding of applying updates to a clientdataset/datasetprovider/query is that the whole remote databse process is sorted out via the AS_ApplyUpdates function in the IAppServer interface.

Sinisa Vuk: We are not using a remote server, the ADO query, DateSetProvider and ClientDataSet are all within the app, hence no TSocket in use.

Managed to narrow down the location of the exception to the CommitTrans command on the ADO connection after our updates. As the ApplyUpdates process should handletrnasactions,  I have removed this as it does not seem to affect to update of the server.  So I now regard this question as closed

Many thanks for your comments.
