With SQL Server’s quoted_identifier option set to Off, you may receive the following error:
Run-time error ‘-2147217900 (80040e14)’:
Line 1: Syntax error near ‘tablename’ This error occurs when you are using client-side cursors with the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server (SQLOLEDB). The error occurs on an ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) recordset’s Update method and may occur on an AddNew method.
With ADO client-side cursors, when you invoke an ADO recordset’s AddNew or Update method, the OLE DB Provider prepares a SQL statement to send to SQL Server.
The Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server automatically quotes identifiers on an ADO recordset’s Update method and may quote identifiers on an AddNew method. Identifiers include table names and field names.
For example, updating the Titles table in the Pubs database with the following code:
MyADORecordet.Update The preceding would be prepared similar to the following:
UPDATE “titles” SET “title”=’Hello World’ WHERE “title_id”=’3′ Note that the table name is in quotes, “titles”, and that each field name is in quotes, “title”, “title_id”, and so on.
If SQL Server’s Quoted_Identifier option is set to Off, SQL Server will not recognize table names and field names enclosed in quotes.
The error “Syntax error near ‘tablename’” occurs.
