Trying To Understand an Error

Trying To Understand an Error

Trying To Understand an Error

An application I am writing has an error I don't quite understand. Perhaps someone can help me.

I have a form that has two masked controls (a date and phone number). I put the code in the form load that applies the mask to these controls. On the same form I have an ADO control that links to a database. This form lets a user enter database info.

The error I have is that when the user enters the value and I call the update method for the ADO, an error occurs: "multiple step operation has generated errors."

When I comment out the mask for the phone number, which is (###)###-####, the update works just fine.

I have tried putting the code in various different events as well and I get the same error.

Can anyone shed some light on this error for me?
