Default Where is forum for ...

Where is the book forum for Beginning Visual Basic 2005 Databases.

My problem is with the sample program in Chapter 5, pg 77, Item number 10 -

'Close the connection

When running the book's program an error generates when the 'Close' button is clicked more than once. Page 81 states that "calling the Close method on a connection that is already closed does not produce and error. Error displayed i Visual Studio Standard 2005 is "NullReference Exception error unhandled" - "Object reference not set to an instance of an object."

Any ideas as to why?

Just prior to the .Close statement, find out what the object is. Either Debug.Print TypeName(objConnection) or MsgBox TypeName(objConnection).

If the value is equal to "Nothing", then the object has not been set to anything, and you’ll need to track that down..
