i'm using vb6 and sql database. while updating the file newly i'm getting the recordcount is -1 ? how can i solve it?


I too don know exactly when it return -1.
I have encountered this error when having connections to more than one database in a single project.
If you are using this recordcount property to check whether a RecordSet is not empty then I would suggest you to use EOF and BOF property of recordset.
for example.
instead of using

if rsStudents.RecordCount > 0 Then


if Not rsStudents.EOF And Not rsStudents.BOF Then

All the best
