ADP & sp_password problesm

ADP & sp_password problesm

ADP & sp_password problesm

I'm creating an ADP & internal audit want me to force users to update their passwords periodically.  I'm having problems on two fronts.  Firstly, the VBA to send the information to sp_password keeps giving me the error
"Procedure 'sp_password' expects parameter '@new', which was not supplied."

Here's the code (VBA) I'm using:


Dim cnn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim cmd As New ADODB.Command
Set cnn = CurrentProject.AccessConnection
With cmd
    .ActiveConnection = cnn
    .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
    .CommandText = "master.dbo.sp_password"
    .Parameters("@old").Direction = adParamInput
    .Parameters("@old") = oldpassword
    .Parameters("@new").Direction = adParamInput
    .Parameters("@new") = NewPassword
    .Parameters("@loginame").Direction = adParamInput
    .Parameters("@loginame") = mytestlogin
End With
I've tried using .parameters(1) etc but get the same result.

Second question - how can I check if the change has been succesful.  I see sp_password returns 0 but how can I get at that value to check?  I can then inform the user?

Thanks in advance.

What is the code of the Stored Procedure

RE: ADP & sp_password problesm

Stored procedure is the 'standard' M$ stored procedure sp_password (Expects 3 variables @Old, @New & @loginame - @old & @loginame can be null)


create procedure sp_password
    @old sysname = NULL,        -- the old (current) password
    @new sysname,               -- the new password
    @loginame sysname = NULL    -- user to change password on

RE: ADP & sp_password problesm

OK, found an answer in one of my (multitude of) Access books at home last night.  For info it looks like this:


With cmd
    .ActiveConnection = cnn
    .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
    .CommandText = "master.dbo.sp_password"
    .Execute Parameters:=Array(oldpass, newpass, sqllogin)
End With

The quick test I ran (with an incorrect old password) returned a sensible (ie in English) error message.
