If you choose to delete a record on an Active Server Pages (ASP) page, when the record has been already deleted by another user, the page is not refreshed to indicate that the record was already deleted.


You can work around this by checking for the return value of the delete operation. DeleteRecord() function returns false if the operation failed. If you want to see the new data, you need to catch the return code and do a move on the recordset.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

This bug was corrected in Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 3. For more information about Visual Studio service packs, please see the following articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Sample code to illustrate the work around mentioned above:
   Sub Button1_onclick()
     if  not Recordset1.deleteRecord() then
     end if
   End Sub
