Question

Why can't I persist recordsets based on ArcSDE feature classes using the ESRI OLE DB provider?

Answer

Persisting a recordset based on an ArcSDE feature class will fail if the select statement used to open the recordset included the 'shape.area' or 'shape.len' fields. Construct a query that does not include these fields, and the recordset can be persisted successfully.
