Can Add Records But Not Update Them

I am developing an application package with VB 6.0 and SQL Server 7.0. My problem is that I can add new records to the ADO recordset but I am unable to update the record from the VB form. I have given the permission to select, insert, update, and delete the data at the SQL Server end. In ADODC the recordset type is dynamic. Presently, there are only 2,000 records in that table. What do you advise?

You say that you can add records but not update them. I wonder if this is because you have a primary key made for you during the ADD, but perhaps are not including the primary key field in the UPDATE, so the row cannot be found and therefore nothing gets updated?

Are there any error messages or other indications of what is failing?
