FIX: You receive "Method Close of object _RecordSet failed" error message when you call the SQLGetInfo function with the SQL_CURSOR_COMMIT_BEHAVIOR attribute in Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.8

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Consider the following scenario.
  • You have a Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) based application.
  • You use the Microsoft OLE DB provider for ODBC.
  • The OLE DB provider for ODBC returns SQL_CB_DELETE when you call the SQLGetInfo function with a SQL_CURSOR_COMMIT_BEHAVIOR attribute.
When this occurs, you receive an error message that is similar to the following:
Method 'Close' of object '_RecordSet' failed.

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

Steps to reproduce the problem

  1. Make sure that you install an ODBC driver that supports the SQL_CB_DELETE return value on the test computer.
  2. Create a Data Source Name (DSN) that is named DSNName on the computer.
  3. Use the following code to produce the error message that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section:
    Dim conn As ADODB.ConnectionSet conn = New ADODB.Connectionconn.Open "DSN=DSNName"sql = "select * from TableName"Set rs = New ADODB.Recordsetconn.BeginTransrs.Open sql, connrs.MoveFirstconn.CommitTransrs.Close '<---- The error occurs here.conn.CloseSet rs = NothingSet conn = Nothing
