Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was fixed in Jet 4.0 Service Pack 6 (SP6).
To reproduce the problem, run the following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code:
Public Sub Jet_TableID_Repro()
Dim conn As ADODB.Connection
Dim cmd As ADODB.Command
Dim rs As ADODB.recordset
Dim i As Long
Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
' Modify this connection string to point to some blank database.
conn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\YourTestDatabase.mdb;"
' Drop and re-create test query.
On Error Resume Next
conn.Execute "drop procedure sp_param_test", , adExecuteNoRecords
On Error GoTo 0
conn.Execute "create procedure sp_param_test as " & _
"parameters iInput Long; " & _
"select iInput as iOutput;", , adExecuteNoRecords
For i = 1 To 10000
' Code should fail at around 2000-3000 iterations.
Set rs = New ADODB.recordset
Set cmd = New ADODB.Command
Set cmd.ActiveConnection = conn
cmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
cmd.CommandText = "sp_param_test"
cmd.Parameters.Append cmd.CreateParameter("iInput", adInteger)
cmd.Parameters(0).value = 12
' This will fail at around 2000-3000 iterations.
rs.Open cmd, , adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic
Set cmd = Nothing
Set rs = Nothing
