ADO UpdateBatch Method

❮ Complete Recordset Object Reference

The UpdateBatch method is used to save all changes in a Recordset to the database. This method is used when you are working on a Recordset in batch update mode.

If the save operation fails, a run-time error occurs and the errors are stored in the Errors collection.
