Insert into Oracle Table using ADO in AutoIt

Recommended Posts


Hi all,

I am breaking my head on this one. I don't know how to solve it.

I have an autoit script in which I submit information and need to enter new records into a database.

I have established a connection to the database and I know that it works because I have tested it against an SQL select statement.

Basically, I have to add new users to an Oracle users database, and I can select the last ID in that Users Table and I can display it on the screen. So therefore I know that I dont have a connection string problem.

I am using the following Insert SQL statement to try to insert a record in the table.

I tried with the following code:

With $adors

.ActiveConnection = $adodb

;.CursorLocation = "adUseClient"

;.LockType = "adLockReadOnly" ; Set ODBC connection read only

.Source = "Insert into Users Values(" & $newID & ", '"& $loginID & "', 0, '" & $fname & "', 'AM', '" & $lname & "', '" & $email & "');"



with $adors being the result set and $adodb being the ADODB connection.

It didnt work.

I also tried that


With $adors

.Fields("ID").Value = $newID

.Fields("Name").Value = $loginID

.Fields("Admin_Option").Value = 0

.Fields("First_Name").Value = $fname

.Fields("Domain").Value = "AM"

.Fields("Last_Name").Value = $lname

.Fields("Email").Value = $email




And it did not work either.

Finally, I tried the following:

$sqlInsert = "Insert into Users Values(" & $newID & ", '"& $loginID & "', 0, '" & $fname & "', 'AM', '" & $lname & "', '" & $email & "');"


which finally still did not work.

At this point, I have no clue what and how to do it.

Can anyone please guide me with that????

Add COM obj error handler to see detailed errors.


$objErr = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc")

Func MyErrFunc()

    Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error!!"        & @CRLF                   & @CRLF & _
                 "err.description is: "    & $objErr.description    & @CRLF & _
                 "err.windescription is: " & $objErr.windescription & @CRLF & _
                 "err.lastdllerror is: "   & $objErr.lastdllerror   & @CRLF & _
                 "err.scriptline is: "     & $objErr.scriptline     & @CRLF & _
                 "err.number is: "         & $hexnum                 & @CRLF & _
                 "err.source is: "         & $objErr.source         & @CRLF & _
                 "err.helpfile is: "       & $objErr.helpfile       & @CRLF & _
                 "err.helpcontext is: "    & $objErr.helpcontext _

Thanks a lot man, you saved me so much time. I tried implementing an error handling function previously so I can see what was happening but I was getting a run time error as soon as I execute my AutoIt script. Please see post : Error Handling in AutoIt.

So my error handling function before wasn't working and was causing my program to not run at all.

Now with yours it worked perfectly and I got to see errors and caught the error that was causing my insert statement not to run. It was the little semi-colin at the end of the statement that was causing the insert not to work. Now it is solved and the insert statement is working.

Thanks a lot!

Just anotehr question though.

With your error handler, other errors popped up which I don't really know how to interpret because they aren't causing me any problem.

Please find attached with this post a Word document with a print screen of the error messages I get before executing the Insert statement.

The first happens as soon as I start the executable program.

The second one happens after import user information from the Active Directory.

Would you know what it means???

Thank you so much.
