Respedted Seniors,

I have a form to input a product model detail. When i run the project and choose to click the menu 'Model Master', an error as below occurred.

Run-time error '3709':
The connection cannot be used to perform this operation. it is either closed or invalid in this context.

When i click debug, it highlighted the line as i have indicated below in the code:

Please anyone help on this problem. Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi,

As i shown in the code tag.

Function GET_LV_MODEL_MASTER()
Me.LVMMaster.ListItems.Clear
Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
Dim sql As String
Dim lItem As ListItem
sql = "Select * from LSICBL_MODEL_MASTER"
If search = True Then
sql = sql & " where MODEL_NAME like '%" & Me.txtModel.Text & "%'"
End If
rs.Open sql, DB, adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly 'this line

With rs
Do While Not .EOF
Set lItem = Me.LVMMaster.ListItems.Add
lItem.SubItems(1) = !model_name
lItem.SubItems(2) = !BOXID
If IsNull(!MODEL_DESCRIPTION) = True Then
Else
lItem.SubItems(3) = !MODEL_DESCRIPTION
End If


.MoveNext
Loop
End With
search = False

End Function

Well, what the error is telling you is that the connection object (DB) is not connected to the database, which could mean that the sub connectDB has not been called, and I can see where you have commented it out...

Step through your code to make sure you have opened it, and have not accidently close it...

Good Luck

Hi,
Somehow, i missed calling ConnectDB in the program. I then called it within a function and it did work.
Thanks a lot for the advice.
How do i close the connection as my ConnectDB function doesn't include that? How to know where you need to close the connection?

Thanks/shena

Connections are expensive, meaning in time and resources. Depending upon the system you are creating and the database you are using you may want to open the connection when the program starts and close the connection when the program ends, which is the easiest way in which to do things. Then when it comes to recordsets, you only keep them open for as long as you need them as they are expensive in their own right and can be even more expensive than a connection object...

Also, you use the pretty much the same syntax in closing a connection as you do with a recordset...

adoRs00.Close
Set adoRs00 = Nothing
adoCn00.Close
Set adoCn00 = Nothing

Good Luck

Hi vb5prgrmr,

Thank you for your advice. I managed to do it.
