Hi when i want to be able to specify a lock type and scrollable cursor on my RS that executes an sql string.

objRS.Open strSQL, objConn

can i include the parameters adLockOptimistic and adOpenKeyset?

what would the syntax need to be?

Could someone please explain if I need to use cursors and locks if i am reading and writing to a database in SQL.

I am fairly new to ASP thanks.

Yes, but you need an include file that defines all of them. Sticky me your email address and I will send you the one I use. As far as using locks reading and writing to the database it depends on what type of reading and writing you are doing.

i just need to know the syntax.

I'm not 100% :) but think the syntax is something like:

objRS.open , objConn, adOpenKeyset
objRS.CursorLocation = adLockOptimistic

Most of the time you wont need to specify any cursors or lock at all (you get a foward cursor by default), just use:

// best performance for insert/update
objConn.Execute strSQL ,,&H00000080

// select - creates rs implicitly
set objRS=objConn.Execute strSQL

This should do

Set RS = server.CreateObject("ADODB.RECORDSET")
RS.CursorLocation = adUseClient
RS.CursorType = adOpenStatic
RS.LockType = adLockPessimistic
RS.Open DBConnection.Execute(SQLStatement)

Thanks guys. I will have found an article on this. It is similar to ducks method. I think I will use that as its easier to understand.

Thanks All
