using ASP and parametized query

P: n/a
Per a previous suggestion, I'm trying to use a parametized query in Access
2002. The query functions properly in Access. Now I'm trying to call it from
ASP. I'm using code I found at
http://www.xefteri.com/articles/apr302002/default.aspx and trying to adjust
for my needs. I'm getting this error. The query is there and functioning. It
appears that I'm not connecting. Can I get some more insight?
thanks!

Do this instead:

dim cn
Set cn=server.createobject("adodb.connection")
cn.open MM_GenKAccess_STRING
Set rsResults = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
cn.qry_FindSongs T,A,C,TY,M,SA, rsResults

See? No delimiters to worry about.

I'm on a local station and the connection string works for all other pages.
I connected with your string, but got no results, where I should be. To be
clear, this string: "cn.qry_FindSongs T,A,C,TY,M,SA, rsResults" passes the
values of the variables T,A,C,TY,M,SA into the query qry_FindSongs and
returns a recordset rsResults... correct? I'm not getting a return on
rsResults.

I get this error:
Response object, ASP 0185 (0x8002000E)
A default property was not found for the object.

The variables are being filled....
T: water
A: %
C: %
TY: %
M: %
SA: %

I'm not sure what you mean by "local station"
and the connection string works for all other
pages. I connected with your string, but got no results, where I
should be. To be clear, this string: "
It's not a string, it's a call to a method.

cn.qry_FindSongs T,A,C,TY,M,SA, rsResults
" passes the values of the variables T,A,C,TY,M,SA into the
query qry_FindSongs and returns a recordset rsResults... correct?
Correct. it always works for me.
I'm not getting a return on rsResults.

I get this error:
Response object, ASP 0185 (0x8002000E)
A default property was not found for the object.


Does the error message point to this line?

Check to verify that your connection is open

<%
dim cn, rsResults
Set cn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.connection")
cn.open MM_GenKAccess_STRING
if cn.State = 1 then
Set rsResults = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
cn.qry_FindSongs T,A,C,TY,M,SA, rsResults
else
Response.Write "Connection is not open<BR>"
end if
%>

Your connection string still looks wierd to me. When you open the database
in Access, do you have to supply both a user name and a password? If not,
you are not using workgroup security and you don't need that business about
a system database in your connection string. If you don't have to enter a
password, then your database is not password-protected and the only thing
needed in your connection string is:

MM_GenKAccess_STRING = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; " & _
"Data Source=" & mdb

If none of these suggestions help, I will need to look at it first-hand.
Would it be possible to send your database to my email address? Or, you can
extract the relevant objects into another database and remove any sensitive
data if that allows you to send it.

---------------------------------------------------
I have narrowed the problem down. The connection is open. I made this small
test code and it works. I created a query in the Access DB that does not
require a variable. And it works....

<%
'this code works and there is no variables
if conn.State = 1 then
Set rsResults = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
conn.qry_SelectCat, rsResults
Response.Write "Connection is open<BR>"
else
Response.Write "Connection is not open<BR>"
end if
%>

.... Then I created a query that requires 1 simple variable and I get this
error...
"Either BOF or EOF is True, or the current record has been deleted.
Requested operation requires a current record" which suggests to me that the
variables are not getting passed to the query. How can I troubleshoot
further? Thanks!

<%
'I introduce 1 variable and it appears the variable is not getting passed to
the query
C = "fav"
if conn.State = 1 then
Set rsResults = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
conn.qry_SelectCategories C, rsResults
Response.Write "Connection is open<BR>"
else
Response.Write "Connection is not open<BR>"
end if
%>

Can you show the SQL for the query that accepts the parameter? I suspect
that the query itself is the problem.

-------------------
I cut-n-pasted these from SQL view in Access.
This query requests 1 variable...
SELECT DISTINCT GenKStock.Category
FROM GenKStock INNER JOIN GenKTitles ON GenKStock.OrderNo =
GenKTitles.ItemNumber
WHERE (((GenKStock.Category) Like "*" & [C] & "*"))
ORDER BY GenKStock.Category;

This query has no variables...
SELECT DISTINCT GenKStock.Category
FROM GenKStock INNER JOIN GenKTitles ON GenKStock.OrderNo =
GenKTitles.ItemNumber
ORDER BY GenKStock.Category;

This is the original query that I need to work...
SELECT GenKStock.OrderNo, GenKTitles.Title, GenKTitles.Artist,
GenKStock.Category, GenKStock.Type, GenKStock.Manuf, GenKStock.SingleArtist,
GenKTitles.mp3Files
FROM GenKStock INNER JOIN GenKTitles ON GenKStock.OrderNo =
GenKTitles.ItemNumber
WHERE (((GenKTitles.Title) Like "*" & [T] & "*") AND ((GenKTitles.Artist)
Like "*" & [A] & "*") AND ((GenKStock.Category) Like "*" & [C] & "*") AND
((GenKStock.Type) Like "*" & [TY] & "*") AND ((GenKStock.Manuf) Like "*" &
[M] & "*") AND ((GenKStock.SingleArtist) Like "*" & [SA] & "*"));

You have to change the * to % in order to call this query from ADO. It
didn't make sense to me the first time I encountered this issue, either.

Shazam! Very strange. The ASP gets a recordset, but when using the Access
interface, '%' does not yield any results. Oh well I guess. Thanks very very
much!!!!

Hi - I have an extremely similar problem but am using excel vba to try and run a parameter query based on start and end dates, the code I am using looks like this:
Dim rstmonval As adodb.Recordset
Dim wssheet As Worksheet
Dim startdate As Date
Dim enddate As Date
Dim sql As String

startdate = Me.stdate.Text
enddate = Me.endate.Text


'Open Connection to Database
Const ConnectionString As String = _
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\documents and settings\tom\desktop\fundhomev7ak1.mdb;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=xxxxxx"

Dim Connection As adodb.Connection
Set Connection = New adodb.Connection
Connection.ConnectionString = ConnectionString
Connection.Open

Debug.Print Connection.State = ObjectStateEnum.adStateOpen

'Define Recordset and access query
'sql = "SELECT tblMonVal.MVID, tblMonVal.MVDate, tblMonVal.MVUSDVal, tblMonVal.MVAssetID, tblMonVal.MVAssetPX FROM tblmonval WHERE (((tblMonVal.MVDate) is not null and (tblmonval.mvdate) Between '" & startdate & "' And '" & enddate & "')) ORDER BY tblmonval.mvassetid;"

Debug.Print sql

Set rstmonval = New adodb.Recordset
Connection.qryvalsbymonth startdate, enddate, rstmonval
If (Connection.State = ObjectStateEnum.adStateOpen) Then
Connection.Close
End If

However - the Jet engine tells me it cannot find this query, despite the fact that it exits....

can anyone give me a clue as to what I am doing wrong?

thanks

Tom
