Re: OLE DB Error 999 "Object Was in Use"

Well, as Ralph says, it's not a VB/ADO/OLEDB error code so it seems to
be a Powerbuilder-specific error; I think you're going to need to move
this to a Powerbuilder forum. I saw a couple in my search results.

Thanks for your response; as a matter of fact, we are using
PowerBuilder, but neither of the references you found seems to apply
to our application. And the same code works as expected with other
SQL Server databases, so I was hoping I could get a more general idea
of what the root cause of this very non-descriptive error might be.

Any assistance with what might cause this error would be greatly

That's a new one on me. Can you show us some code that would produce
this error?

I've done a quick google and all the incidents I see for this error
are a result of using PowerBuilder. Are you using that tool? If so,
perhaps this is relevant: (scroll down

If that's not relevant, here are the rest of the search results:"object+was+open"&btnG=Search
