Source Property

Indicates the source for the data in a Recordset object (Command object, SQL statement, table name, or stored procedure) or the name of the object or application that originally generated an error.

Settings and Return Values

· Recordset sets a String value or Command object reference; returns only a String value.

· Error returns a String value.


Use the Source property on a Recordset object to set or determine from where the Recordset object's data comes, or on an Error object to create error-handling routines.


Use the Source property to specify a data source for a Recordset object using one of the following: a Command object variable, an SQL statement, a stored procedure, or a table name. The Source property is read/write for closed Recordset objects and read-only for open Recordset objects.

If you set the Source property to a Command object, the ActiveConnection property of the Recordset object will inherit the value of the ActiveConnection property for the specified Command object. However, reading the Source property does not return a Command object; instead, it returns the CommandText property of the Command object to which you set the Source property.

If the Source property is an SQL statement, a stored procedure, or a table name, you can optimize performance by passing the appropriate Options argument with the Open method call.


Use the Source property on an Error object to determine the name of the object or application that originally generated an error. This could be the object's class name or programmatic ID. For errors in ADODB, the property value will be ADODB.ObjectName where ObjectName is the name of the object that triggered the error. The Source property is read-only for Error objects.

Based on the error documentation from the Source, Number, and Description properties of Error objects, you can write code that will handle the error appropriately.
