Update Method

Saves any changes you make to the current record of a Recordset object.


recordset.Update Fields, Values

The Update method syntax has these parts:




An object variable representing an open, updatable Recordset object.


Optional. A Variant representing a single name or a Variant array representing names or ordinal positions of the field or fields you wish to modify.


Optional. A Variant representing a single value or a Variant array representing values for the field or fields in the new record.


Use the Update method to save any changes you make to the current record of a Recordset object since calling the AddNew method or since changing any field values in an existing record. The Recordset object must support updates.

To set field values, do one of the following:

· Assign values to a Field object's Value property and call the Update method.

· Pass a field name and a value as arguments with the Update call.

· Pass an array of field names and an array of values with the Update call.

When you use arrays of fields and values, there must be an equal number of elements in both arrays. Also, the order of field names must match the order of field values. If the number and order of fields and values do not match, an error occurs.

If the Recordset object supports batch updating, then you can cache multiple changes to one or more records locally until you call the UpdateBatch method. If you are editing the current record or adding a new record when you call the UpdateBatch method, ADO will automatically call the Update method to save any pending changes to the current record before transmitting the batched changes to the provider.

If you move from the record you are adding or editing before calling the Update method, ADO will automatically call Update to save the changes. You must call the CancelUpdate method if you want to cancel any changes made to the current record or to discard a newly added record.

The current record remains current after you call the Update method.

The record set must have been opened with some type of locking inorder to use the Update method.
