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.Connection
    Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
    conn.Open "DSN=DSNName"
    sql = "select * from TableName"
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    rs.Open sql, conn
    rs.Close '<---- The error occurs here.
    Set rs = Nothing
    Set conn = Nothing
