recordCount incorrect for Distinct Clause in Quer

35 New Member
I have recently migrated DB from Sql Server 2000 to Sql Server 2005.
Ever since, when i fire queries with a DISTINCT clause, the recordcount property returns the result as -1.

I am using the record set as:
Sql ="Select dictinct fieldName from tbTableName"
rs.Open Sql,ObjConn,adO penStatic,adLoc kPessimistic

However when i tried removing the Lock Type property from the recordset, it reurns the correct recordcount. Can anyone tell me why is this happening. Is there any setting that needs to be done in Sql Server 2005

I think this is more of a VBA/ASP question than a sql server question. Try posting it to the Programming Forum and they might be able to help you more.

Dear Group I'm having trouble with the clause below. I would like to select only records with a distinct TransactionDate but somehow it still lists duplicates. I need to select the TransactionDate once as smalldatetime and once as varchar as I'm populating a drop-down with Text/Value pairs. So I can't just use 'SELECT DISTINCT TransactionDate FROM...' I'm grateful for any hints.

I have a table from which I'm trying to extract certain information. For historical reasons, we archive every action on a particular thing ('thing' is identified, funnily enough, by 'id').

In the examples below, I've taken real output from psql and done a global search/replace on various...

My boss has been adamant that SELECT DISTINCT is a faster query than SELECT all other factors being equal. I disagree. We are linking an Access front end to a SQL Server back end and normally are only returning one record. She states that with disctinct the query stops as soon as it finds a matching record. Both of us are relative novices in database theory (obviously). Can someone help settle this?

Hello Folks, can anybody tell me how to do the following very simple thing: I have a table that has say departments, divisions and units of an organisation and what i am trying to do is find a divison.

May be it will help someone. I faced the strange problem with RecordCount property of cloned Recordset within the Current event handler. The RecordCount value was correct every time I had diagnostic message boxes turned on or when I debugged the handler step by step. And these values became incorrect in normal mode (to be exact they became wrong after the first occurrence of "no records" case). I tried to use MoveFirst and MoveLast...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
