Reuse a Recordset’s Connection

Reuse a Recordset’s Connection

ADO lets you create a Recordset without creating an explicit Connection object, using the following syntax:

Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordsetrs.Open "Authors", "DSN=Pubs"

If you later want to create another Recordset, but you (correctly) don’t want to create another database connection, you can reuse the implicit Connection object that ADO has created for the first Recordset, as in:

Dim rs2 As New ADODB.RecordsetSet rs2.ActiveConnection = rs.ActiveConnectionrs2.Open "Publishers"

or, more simply, with

Dim rs2 As New ADODB.Recordsetrs2.Open "Publishers", rs.ActiveConnection
