ODBC/SQL Cursor Error

One of the people I have to support gets an error message when they are trying to use a SQL based application that was developed in house:

an error odbc sql driver cursor type change. location frn main, load user () source is odbc

Unfortunately, the developer is not available to troubleshoot the issue and I do not understand it.  I thought ODBC settings were static, so how could they cause a cursor to change?

ODBC Inserting Against Open Cursor
Im receiving 'HY000 Connection is busy with results for another hstmt' when trying to insert. The reason is down to another hstmt with a cursor still open (as not all results have been fetched) against the same connection handle. My current design is one connect handle per file, with multiple statement handle depending on sql issued so i dont need to rebind.
I'm guessing, but is there a sqlsetconnectattr/sqlsetstmtattr setting to which will allow me to insert/update/delete to a file with a open cursor that may include the result ???

sqlserver version 8

How To Clear 'ODBC 24000 Invalid Cursor State'
Hello experts. Excuse my SQL newbie status. I was writing a stored procedure to crunch some data against an MS SQL 2000 database. I didn't entirely know what I was doing so I was using Crystal Reports 11 as an "application layer" pulling against a stored procedure. Well I guess ODBC connections don't support temp table output from stored procedures, or at least I don't know how to do it.

So I've rewritten my stored procedure so it inputs and outputs data using BCP, rather than just sending a simple select query.

My problem is that I cannot get CR to add the stored procedure back in to the report. Everytime I try I get an 'ODBC 24000 error - Invalid Cursor State.'

Where is this current set of records? How do I find it and close it? I've recreated my ODBC connection, every related table and SP to no avail. This is my crusial question.

Less crucial but helpful: How do I write an SP so it can be called from a report program like CR and will return its result set to the application? What's a good, simple "application layer" I can use if I'm doing all the logic in native SQL stored procedures? ASP.NET looks like a pain in the ass, and SQL Reporting Services requires Visual Studio .NET 2003. Is Perl my answer, since I can build web interfaces and forms in my sleep?

Cursor Error
We are getting an error while running a stored procedure,
This is not the exact error but it is roughly:

'cannot complete cursor operation because table schema changed after cursor declaration'

Any ideas as to what causes this?

ERROR [HY000] Or ERROR [23000] At Random Times When Using Sql Native Client Via ODBC
The following (VB.Net) code causes exceptions at seemingly random times.
Any suggestions?
Not sure if the problem is in .Net's ODBC support or in Sql Native Client.

If MARS is off, usually after less than 100 loops:

Code Snippet

System.Data.Odbc.OdbcException was unhandled
  Message="ERROR [HY000] [Microsoft][SQL Native Client]Connection is busy with results for another command"
Turning MARS is on bypasses that error, so it will sometimes survive a thousand or so runs before hitting:

            testcmd2 = Nothing


            run_count += 1
        End While

    End Sub

End Module

Usually the ".Update" triggers the exception, but sometimes the other sql commands do it.
Have tried various experiments with disposing of objects immediately when finished, but no effect.
Opening and closing the connection each loop seems to delay the errors, but it still happens eventually.

ODBC Error: SQLState 28000 && Server Error 18452

We have an application that connects to SQL 2005 thru ODBC with the following string:

driver=SQL Server;server=server1;database=db2005;uid=serveruser;pwd=pwd1;

When our administrators login on the workstation the application works well. But when ordinary users login they get the following error. (We only have 1 domain)

SQLState: 28000

SQL Server Error: 18452

Login failed for user ". The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection.

Then the standard SQL Server Login window pops up asking for the Login ID and Password. On the window the 'Use Trusted Connection' is checked and the name of the user on the workstation appears on the LoginID. What we do is uncheck the 'Use Trusted Connection' then login using the credentials above.

Need help on this one please. Thanks.

Where To Put Error Routine When Using Cursor
Where is the proper place to put error trapping routines when using cursor
statement. Say for example you do below:

if @@error <> 0
error trap routine
start cursor routine
do process
close cursor

Will this placement trap any errors which occur during the cursor routine, or
should the error trap be inside the cursor

Error Handling + Cursor

Hello group
I need some help and gaining knowledge per the SQL Standards.
I have a Stor Procedue which Cursor through say MASTER.  This table have information/ Counm that guides me to multiple say two different table.
i.e, Col1 in MASTER table have the information on what table I need to work on COL2 in MASTER Table give me what Field I have to work on and accordingly move the data
Example :
ID         COL1          COL2      COL3
1           Address      Street      Nichols Rd.
1           Address      Zip           90001
2           Address      Street      Michigan Ave
2           Address      Zip           90002
3            Person        FName    James
3            Person        LName     Bond
4            Person        FName     Bill
4            Person        LName     Gates

ID    Street               Zip
1     Nichols Rd.        90001
2     Michigan Ave     90002
ID       FName            LName
3         James             Bond
4         Bill                  Gates
For doing this I created a Store Procedure which Cursor thru MASTER table which for each row goes to Entity on which it has to work (MASTER Table : Col1 Value) and in that entity Its goes to the Field(MASTER Table: Col2 Value) and places the value of the Col3 in it.
It is working fine and superb. Now, I try to introduce Error Handling such that incase in order to see if there is any error while doing this INSERT and UPDATE.
SAMPLE QUERY: (Structure is Same but modified for readability)

IF  @@ERROR <> 0 

INSERT INTO dbo.ErrorLog VALUES( @KEYID + ' ,  '+ @ENTITY + ' , ' + @FIELD +' , ' + @VALUE )
This query is working fine . If there is any error and for some reason if its not able to insert/update  the data Its  populates the ErrorLog Table and instead of failing the store proc goes for the next row and do teh necessary action
Finally SProc does what it has too
1) Get the data in teh respective tabel and colunm
2) if it cannot insert/ update go for the next row and populate the error log table with what it was n't able to update/ insert
SO Whats the problem? Good question , here is the issue or topic of discussion 
1) What is the standard way of Error Handling. Did I atleast follow teh minimum Error Handling criteria.
2) I can see from teh table that, as required,  its skipping the row into Error Log table whenevr its not able to do the required functions and going for next row
3) I introduce a Error and when I execute the Sproc it gives me Mesaage:

Msg 8152, Level 16, State 14, Line 1

String or binary data would be truncated.

The statement has been terminated.
Also I see that "Query Completed with Errors" well I said whenever teh SPROC see error do some thing else, then why would it count it as error and give me this message? Why is the SPROC failing.
 What Should I do such that it counts or give when ever there is a genuine error. I mean it should not fail at all because I am saying there whenever there is an incapability of Insert/ Delete just simply skip the row and Insert that row in Error Log Table.
Am I missing something in this Proc?
If it will do that then is tehre any way or query or anything I have to do that handles the issue that
Whennver its not able to do whatever I am asking it to do (Ex: If I am asking it to insert INTEGER in Character Field) then an error is raised then just skipp that row insert that row in erro log and go for next row and dont fail the SPROC.

Error On Update, But Not When Using Cursor
I've implemented a UDF in SQL Server 2005 written in C#. The function with its assembly has been registered ok with SQL Server and works fine. It accepts three short strings (nvarchar of lengths 5, 35, and 35) and returns a SQL formatted string (SqlString).

When I run the function to test it it works just fine, and the same is true if I run the function inside a cursor to update a field in a table. But when I do a simple update it crashes. I've so far received two different errors: first one error saying a string could not be converted into an integer (but the error does not occur when I enter the same input values manually via a test Windows form, or through the new Query Analyzer as a single query - or using it inside a cursor). Then one error saying a string was too short (I couldn't use substring(X, Y) because the string, I was told, was too short - it wasn't).

The problem thus cannot be with the function since it works just fine if I do like this:

UPDATE myTable SET CodeField = dbo.fnMyFunction(Field1, Field2, Field3) WHERE PersonId = 10000001

And it works fine while doing the same thing inside a cursor (for instance working with the first 10, 100 or 1000 records).

But when I do this it crashes:

UPDATE myTable SET CodeField = dbo.fnMyFunction(Field1, Field2, Field3)

For your information the table has about 1.5M records (for testing, it contain more data when on the production server) and my aim is to update the CodeField column as quickly as possible. The CodeField is a 12-character string that is based on a rather complex algorithm including the Field1, Field2 and Field3 strings. I'm using C# because it manages strings much better than SQL Server - and it is so much easier coding this stuff.

Anyhow, I've had this kind of problem before with SQL Servers 2000 and 7 (maybe even 6.5) and it seems the problem occurs when I let SQL Server go about its business at its own pace. But when I do something to control that it really takes one record at a time (through using a cursor or executing the query with a WHERE clause like the one above) it works splendidly.

The problem here is that a cursor is way too slow, and there really shouldn't be a problem with a simple UPDATE command, should it? After all, everything works just fine except when I let SQL Server do what it does best (i.e. update the field at its own speed, whatever that is).

Any ideas? This is very frustrating since it is impossible to try and find the error - it isn't there when testing! And it is frustrating since I remember having had the same kind of problem (but every time with different errors arising) before without finding a solution (except for slowing everything down - not an option here).

Is there a certain tweak I can do to make things work out, or should I code things differently?

The process uses a cursor to update a SQL7 table from another. This is not a consistent failure. Sometimes the procedure runs fine to completion. Has anyone else had the same problem??? We had a suggestion that it might be a tempdb problem??? Any ideas?

The Cursor Does Not Include The Table ... Error?
We use a lot of virtual machines. I have a base VM with SQL 2005 installed. I rename this VM (i have multiple copies running) and run an old application (VB code, iterates through recordsets, etc.).

I get: Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Could not find server '2K3VM-DG' in sysservers. Execute sp_addlinkedserver to add the server to sysservers.

This makes sense, and I can fix it with sp_dropserver / sp_addserver [local]. Good.

The next error is puzzling though:

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]The cursor does not include the table being modified or the table is not updatable through the cursor.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Dynamic Cursor Versus Forward Only Cursor Gives Poor Performance
Hello,I have a test database with table A containing 10,000 rows and a tableB containing 100,000 rows. Rows in B are "children" of rows in A -each row in A has 10 related rows in B (ie. B has a foreign key to A).Using ODBC I am executing the following loop 10,000 times, expressedbelow in pseudo-code:"select * from A order by a_pk option (fast 1)""fetch from A result set""select * from B where where fk_to_a = 'xxx' order by b_pk option(fast 1)""fetch from B result set" repeated 10 timesIn the above psueod-code 'xxx' is the primary key of the current Arow. NOTE: it is not a mistake that we are repeatedly doing the Aquery and retrieving only the first row.When the queries use fast-forward-only cursors this takes about 2.5minutes. When the queries use dynamic cursors this takes about 1 hour.Does anyone know why the dynamic cursor is killing performance?Because of the SQL Server ODBC driver it is not possible to havenested/multiple fast-forward-only cursors, hence I need to exploreother alternatives.I can only assume that a different query plan is getting constructedfor the dynamic cursor case versus the fast forward only cursor, but Ihave no way of finding out what that query plan is.All help appreciated.Kevin

Microsoft Cursor Engine Error '80040e38'

I have issue updating date field on table. Here is the situation.

I create a new record onto table:
dim fieldsArray(1)
dim valuesArray(1)
fieldsarray(0) = "sdate"
valuesarray(0) = date
fieldsarray(1) = "stime"
valuesarray(1) = FormatDateTime(now(),vbshorttime)

Recordset1.addImmediate fieldsarray, valuesarray

Then on 1 other page I go back to this record to update 2 other Date and Time fields:
Recordset1.fields.setValue "edate",date
Recordset1.fields.setValue "etime",FormatDateTime(now(),vbshorttime)


it is then that I get the error:

Microsoft Cursor Engine error '80040e38'
Row cannot be located for updating. Some values may have been changed since it was last read.

If I change the fields type to tinytext it is working otherwise nothing.

I'm fighting with this for the last 2 days...

Error Creating Cursor Handle ** Update **
***Original message:*** (see update below)
Can someone please help me with this stored procedure? When
I execute it in ISQL/w, it works fine, but when one of my programmers
tries to execute it from another program (Delphi3) he receives an
error of “Error creating cursor handle”. Can someone tell me what
this means? I don't really know anything about cursors... how can
I be using them???


declare @msg varchar(30)
declare @newnum int

insert dbo.employ_xref_id default values

SELECT @newnum=(max(Idcolumn+1))
from employ_xref_id
where IDCOLUMN between 0 and 9999
and not exists (select * from EMPLOY_XREF e
where e.EMP_ID=(idcolumn+1))

select @msg=""+convert (varchar(10), @newnum)
print @msg


I have figured out that it is the 'select @newnum=(max(idcolumn+1))' that was causing the problem. Actually just the
@newnum portion. I've changed that to just 'select newnum=(max(idcolumn+1))', but how can I get this value to
be returned to the user without having the @newnum variable to use in a PRINT statement?


declare @msg varchar(30)

insert dbo.employ_xref_id default values

select newnum = (max(idcolumn +1))
from employ_xref_id
where idcolumn between 100 and 999
and not exists (select * from employ_xref e
where e.emp_id=(idcolumn +1))


Thanks for any advice!!

Close And Deallocate Cursor In Error Routine
I have an error trapping routine within a proc that uses cursors. The routine works but if I run the stored proc from Query analyzer more than once it complains the cursor has already been declared and is still open. Should I close and deallocate as part of my error routine?

Error 1429: A Server Cursor Cannot Be Opened...
Using SQL native client from VFP 9.0 to SQL Server 2005 64 bit SP1 (happened before SP1 too)..

We have a stored procedure that returns 6 result sets. This SP uses 2 cursors. It is rather lengthy - I'll post the code if needed.

This SP works fine when called from VFP 99 percent of the time. Normally takes 2 to 3 secunds to execute.

Once in a while we will get a return from SQL ..

"OLE IDispatch exception code 0 from Microsoft SQL Native Client: A server cursor cannot be opened on the given statement or statements. Use a default result set or client cursor..."

The OLE error code is 1429. An OLE Exception code 3604 is also returned.

When this happens the SP will return the same error when executed for the same parameters over and over when called from VFP. When called directly from SQL management console it will normally work for the same parameters, although once in a while it will just hang (and not timeout apparently). In that case it will also hang from SQLCMD command line utility as well.

Wait a few hours and the SP will run fine for the same parameters in VFP. This happens even in the middle of the night when there is no possibility that data is being changed.

Here's the really fun part...

Open the SP source for modification (ALTER PROCEDURE) in management console and execute it (no changes at all, just let it recompile). Immediately it will work fine when called with the same parameters called from VFP or anywhere else (even if it was one of the rare instances where it hung in management console). This works EVERY TIME.

Sooo... I edited and executed the SP with the WITH RECOMPILE option assuming that that should do the trick (same as alter procedure/executing from management console right?). NOPE. Same problems. In order to work around the problem when the error occurs, I HAVE TO alter procedure and execute the code from management console.

ODBC Error Returns Error, But Sql Is Fine
When I run some code through an odbc driver onto a SQL server 6.5 database, from vb an error is being returned along the lines of

22005 Syntax error converting 'string' to INT4

if I copy this code, either from vb or from sql trace, and run it in isql the code runs without any errors.

The only thing I have found is about NULLs so I have removed these from the code that is passed through?

Any more suggestions?

OLE DB Error: OLE DB Or ODBC Error: Class Not Registered.
I have been searching high and low for days and I am perplexed and appalled at the lack of information regarding what can not be an isolated incident.

We are trying to get an Analysis Services 2005 to process on a x64 server.  We have both versions of the Oracle client installed and .ora file in both places.  I have seen a couple of posts regarding this issue, but they are 2 years old and MS was supposed to have resolved the 'parentheses' issue long ago.

The test connection succeeds, and I can explore the data in the datasource view, but I cannot process the cube.  All I get is the "OLE DB error: OLE DB or ODBC error: Class not registered"

Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2
Enterprise x64 Editon
Service Pack 2

Installed Oracle Client 10g and ODAC home

I tried a few things that were suggested in posts, but nothing has worked.  I tried the cmd line starting SSMS from progra~2 instead of (x86).  I tried renaming the directory with no parentheses.  This is the second time we've tried to get it to work in 2 years.  We'll probably give up again and stay with x86, um, because it works without all these silly mickey-mouse tricks.  Most of our relational DBs are ORACLE so this is a showstopper for us as far as trying to go x64.

Sorry for the attitude, but I'm really frustrated!

If anyone can tell me a way to resolve this (or that it can't be resolved), I'd really appreciate it!

Error: Table Schema Changed After The Cursor Is Declared

I have a package which loads data from one sql server table to another. I am loading 15million records in that. Earlier I tested that package with smaller data (less than a million) and it worked fine. So, I put it in production to load that 15 million records. But strangely after loading over 1.5million records, the job aborted with error at destination. The log says 'the table schema has changed after the cursor is declared'. But there is no change made in both destination as well as source.

In my package I am using a 'OLEDB Source' to read data from a SQL Server table, using 'Script component' making some changes and loading data to a sql server table using 'OLE DB Destination'. Both source and destination are in same server, but under different schema.

Do you have any idea about the problem?

ODBC Error
I recently rebuilt an NT 4.0 server, SP4, with IIS 4.0. The installation media and path that I used gave me ODBC version Our web application works fine on another server that is identical except for ODBC version 3.510.3002.23. ODBC returns error : Procedure executed with 'EXEC'. No output parameters returned." in the first case.
Does anyone have an idea what is going here? And second, how can I find what version of ODBC comes from what source? It appears that ODBC is installed/upgraded from a multitude of sources.

Thanks in advance,
