ADO Seek Method


Recordset Object Reference Complete Recordset Object Reference

The Seek method searches the index of a Recordset to find a record that matches the values specified in the keyvalues parameter. If there is a match, the pointer will point to the record specified by the seekoption parameter. If there is no match, the record pointer will be placed at the end of the Recordset.

Note: To use this method, the provider must support this method and the use of indexes on a Recordset (the Index property). Use the Supports method to determine whether the provider supports seek and indexes.

Note: Set the Index property to the desired index before executing this method.

Note: This method can only be used with server-side cursors (not supported when the CursorLocation property value is adUseClient).

Note: This method can only be used when the Recordset object was opened with the CommandTypeEnum value of adCmdTableDirect.
