Access 97 code openrecordset problem

Discussion in 'Information Technology' started by Bob, Nov 2, 2005.

    The following bit of code returns error 13
    Dim sql As String
    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

    sql = "select * from Mytable where tblID = 1"

    Set rs = currentdb.openrecordset(sql)

    This code should work and code exactly similar to it works fine in other
    applications on same machine also written in Access 97,

    However in this app, when we execute the above code we always get this type
    mismatch error, however when we run the query itself in query builder it
    works fine.
    There is no error in select statement.

    We looked at the references for the app and we have dao 3.6, Ms access 8.0
    obj library

    Any help in resolving this would be greatly appreciated.

    You're using a DAO method (the OpenRecordset method of the DAO Database
    object) and trying to assign it to an ADO database.

    Either change

    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

    to

    Dim rs As DAO.Recordset

    or use ADO methods to open the recordset.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
