System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Unspecified error

P: n/a
I have a function residing in a module that is doing some file copy and
database query operations. This function is called from a regular form under
a System.Windows.Forms.Timer control. The problem is that sometimes it gives
an error - even when it is doing the same exact operations. It may fail on
the 20th tick event or the 100th. The file and data has no changes - so, it
is doing the same operations repeatedly. I'm wondering if anyone can look at
the error below and tell me where to start because I know that there is no
problem with the code to copy the files or to read/write to the database.
The error comes up during different points of the code execution in the
function - pretty random.

Error Message:

See the end of this message for details on invoking

just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************

To enable just in time (JIT) debugging, the config file for this

application or machine (machine.config) must have the

jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.

The application must also be compiled with debugging

enabled.

For example:

<configuration>

<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />

</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception

will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the machine

rather than being handled by this dialog.

Sarah,

Try stepping through the program to see what line exactly is throwing
the exception and then post that section of code here.

Try stepping through the program to see what line exactly is throwing
the exception and then post that section of code here.


There are a lot of lines of code and the problem is that it does not happen
every time. Sometimes it executes the tick every 5secs successfully for
hours. So, I can't step through!

It is executing the same code again and again - i.e. all running through the
very same steps. It is connecting to an Access .mdb database file and only
fails once in a while. Same problem on multiple systems. CPU resource and
memory usage very low. Anything else to try?

Without code I can't help you to diagnose the problem.
