Provider error '80020005' Type mismatch
Unable to find solution

 2:07 am on Mar 21, 2010 (gmt 0)

I've been hitting a brick wall for the last 14 hrs or so.

Writing a small script in classic ASP to update 3 numbers in a table in MS Access, something I have done umpteen times, however this time I'm stumped.

Updating 3 number fields in a 4 field record, 2 fields would update as expected if it wasn't for the third field throwing an error : Provider error '80020005' Type mismatch.

When I take the third field out of the update the other two update the numbers perfectly.

I have been looking all over the web and while I found questions about this error they only had some roundabout answers but no definite solution.

If anyone here knows, please share, many thanks in advance.

Your SQL string is probably using a wrong type. For instance if you are updating a string field, you need to wrap the value in ticks. And dates need formatting.

Another fault I've come across is the field name being a reserved word - eg Type.

Thank you bmcgee, your suggestion would work fine for a VBscript runtime error but this is a different kind of error.

One way or the other I will crack this problem. :)

Thank you dstiles, that was one of the first things I checked.

In the meantime I've solved it, so it's OK now.

Thanks again.
