  • Microsoft Access


Proper table structure and recordset creation is all that is usually needed. Where this is not possible, there are a few alternatives: 
  • Option 1: Use SQL statements to do the updating and deleting and use read-only snapshot type recordsets to view the data. Refresh the recordset as needed. 
  • Option 2: Refresh the recordset after every edit or addnew or execute operation that affects the data in the recordset. The Jet engine will rebuild the keyset with the updated information. 
  • Option 3: Remove triggers, functions, and so forth from the ODBC table and perform those actions manually. 


The "Record is Deleted" error (error 3167) is a byproduct of the Jet engine's keyset cursor for the dynaset type recordset. More information can be found in Microsoft support article.
