When fetching rowset values into nonvariant datatypes, ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) may suppress errors that are related to the status of the recordset, such as notifications that the record is locked by another user.
This problem occurs in Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) version 2.50.4403.12 (Microsoft Windows 2000/MDAC 2.5 RTM) and 2.51.5303.5 (Windows 2000/MDAC 2.5 SP1). This problem does not occur in MDAC version 2.60.6526.3 (MDAC 2.6 RTM).
A slightly different code path is taken depending on whether the application is fetching into variant datatypes. The use of variants is wrapped in an internal context object which has the ability to return error information. Nonvariants do not have this context wrapper and do not return error information.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Microsoft Data Access Components 2.5. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
