[PRB] The ADODC Data control doesn’t work with server-side cursors that use Access databases

Under ADODB, recordset objects that use server-side cursors to read and write Access databases do not expose events. Unfortunately, the VB6ADODC data control implemented in VB Migration Partner’s support library relies on these events for its correct working, therefore you can’t use the VB6ADODC class to migrate VB6 project that use this sort of recordsets. Please notice that VB6 projects migrated using Microsoft Update Wizard suffer from the same problem.

The only workaround for this issue is changing the recordset CursorLocation property so that it uses client-side cursors, or upgrade to a database other than Microsoft Access.
