Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e18' - Rowset position cannot be

Thread began 8/08/2011 1:08 am by Gareth.TannattNash253613 | Last modified 8/08/2011 7:58 am by Jason Byrnes | 8690 views | 1 replies |


Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e18' - Rowset position cannot be

I'm using Ecart 4 within Dreamweaver CS5.5. Hiostorically when adding the add to cart procedure Ecart has changed the recordset cursor type.

However on this occasion it isn't doing so and as a result I get the following error when testing the add to cart behaviour -

"Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e18'
Rowset position cannot be restarted.
/detail.asp, line 36"

How do I overcome this? My code is -

Dim RsProductDetail__MMColParam
RsProductDetail__MMColParam = "0"
If (Request("p") <> "") Then
RsProductDetail__MMColParam = Request("p")
End If
Dim RsProductDetail
Dim RsProductDetail_cmd
Dim RsProductDetail_numRows

Set RsProductDetail_cmd = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Command")
RsProductDetail_cmd.ActiveConnection = MM_Connection_STRING
RsProductDetail_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT Something From Somewhere Order BY P.ID DESC"
RsProductDetail_cmd.Prepared = true
RsProductDetail_cmd.Parameters.Append RsProductDetail_cmd.CreateParameter("param1", 5, 1, -1, RsProductDetail__MMColParam) ' adDouble

Set RsProductDetail = RsProductDetail_cmd.Execute
RsProductDetail_numRows = 0
' WA eCart AddToCart
if (cStr(Request.Form("ShoppingCart_1_ATC")) <> "" OR cStr(Request.Form("ShoppingCart_1_ATC.x")) <> "") then
ATC_itemID = cStr(Request.Form("ShoppingCart_1_ID_Add"))
ATC_AddIfIn = 0
ATC_RedirectAfter = "cart.html"
ATC_RedirectIfIn = ""
ATC_RSPos = RsRelatedProduct.AbsolutePosition
DO while (NOT RsRelatedProduct.EOF)
if (cStr(RsRelatedProduct.Fields("ID").value) = cStr(ATC_itemID)) then
ATC_itemName = "" & cStr((RsRelatedProduct.Fields.Item("Product-Name").Value)) & ""' column binding
ATC_itemDescription = "" & cStr((RsRelatedProduct.Fields.Item("Description").Value)) & ""' column binding
ATC_itemWeight = cDbl("0")' column binding
ATC_itemQuantity = "" & cStr(Request.Form("ShoppingCart_1_Quantity_Add")) & ""' column binding
ATC_itemPrice = cDbl("" & cStr((RsRelatedProduct.Fields.Item("Price").Value)) & "")' column binding
ATC_itemItemDeliveryCharge = cDbl("0")' column binding
Exit DO
end if
RsRelatedProduct.AbsolutePosition = ATC_RSPos
if (IsNumeric(ATC_itemQuantity) AND ATC_itemQuantity <> 0) then
set ShoppingCart = ShoppingCart_AddToCart(ATC_AddIfIn, ATC_RedirectIfIn, ATC_itemID, ATC_itemName, ATC_itemDescription, ATC_itemWeight, ATC_itemQuantity, ATC_itemPrice, ATC_itemItemDeliveryCharge)
if (ATC_RedirectAfter <> "" AND ShoppingCart_redirStr = "") then
ShoppingCart_redirStr = ATC_RedirectAfter
end if
Session("WAEC_ContinueRedirect") = cStr(Request.ServerVariables("Script_Name")) & "?" & cStr(Request.QueryString())
end if
end if

Line 36 being -


I tried adding RsRelatedProduct.ActiveConnection.CursorLocation = 3 above Set RsProductDetail = RsProductDetail_cmd.Execute but that just moved the error to line 37.

Thanks for any help or insight..

some newer version of IIS do not allow for changing the recordset cursor location. you can try changing line 36:


Set RsProductDetail = RsProductDetail_cmd.Execute

which would recreate the recordset and move it to the beginning.
