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.
