Ms Access database error."Could not update.Currentl y Locked"

2 New Member
Hi,
I wrote a VB6 program to read some data records from a Ms Access database and to write them into a SQL server database.(I use Ms Access 2000 and SQL server 2000).After reading each record in Access database, I update a text type datafield of that record in Access database to 'Y' (to mark the perticular record as a copied record)(The program does the updation). I tested the program several times by using a seperate copy of the same database each time. Sometimes it worked ok. But randomly it gave an error "Could not update. Currently locked". Again some times it worked ok. I can't understand why this error comes at random times.
What is this error? How can I correct this?

The recordset opening method I used is :
rs.open sSQL , dbConn, adOpenStatic, adCmdTable

For some recordsets I used the method :
rs.open sSQL , dbConn , adOpenStatic, adLockOptimisti c

rs:- the recordset
sSQL:- the SQL statement to select the records
dbConn:- the database connection

Is there something wrong with the recordset opening methods?

Can anyone please help me ......

Thanks,
amindi.

Hi,

Maybe if your code have already functionned maybe the problem isn't in your code
Maybe you open the database exclusively and one time opened the database is locked for others!

There is also a possibility for locking! If there is a problem with the ldb file of the database! If a suitable ldb file isn't created when the database is open you can't open it at the same time from other instances!

Have a nice luck!

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
