was surprised that s_Generation could be appended to.
Well, your mistake is in passing a value for a column that you agree
you shouldn't be messing with. If it worked the way you assumed, it
would have thrown an error.
Now, I don't know why different computers (perhaps with different
versions of ADO?) gave you different results, but the situation is
one where you shouldn't have been assigning a value in the first
place, regardless of how ADO behaved, so the mistake was yours, a
conceptual mistake, not a problem with ADO or Jet.
