In this article

expression .BatchCollisionCount

expression A variable that represents a Recordset object.

This property indicates how many records encountered collisions or otherwise failed to update during the last batch update attempt. The value of this property corresponds to the number of bookmarks in the BatchCollisions property.

If you set the working Recordset object's Bookmark property to bookmark values in the BatchCollisions array, you can move to each record that failed to complete the most recent batch Update operation.

After the collision records are corrected, a batch-mode Update method can be called again. At this point DAO attempts another batch update, and the BatchCollisions property again reflects the set of records that failed the second attempt. Any records that succeeded in the previous attempt are not sent in the current attempt, because they now have a RecordStatus property of dbRecordUnmodified. This process can continue as long as collisions occur, or until you abandon the updates and close the result set.

This example uses the BatchCollisionCount property and the Update method to demonstrate batch updating where any collisions are resolved by forcing the batch update.
