Extra connectivity to a SQL or MySQL database

Extra connectivity to a SQL or MySQL database

Extra connectivity to a SQL or MySQL database

Does anyone have any examples or documentation on getting extra to connect to a SQL or MySQL database, including how to add, update, and move through the records?

RE: Extra connectivity to a SQL or MySQL database


Extra cannot connect.  But you can write VBA code, using ADO to access you database.

this happens to be a function I wrote to return a value, but the principle is the same.  You just need a library reference to Microsoft ActiveX Data Object n.m Library


Function GetPartPriorty( _
        sPN As String) As String
' Access: DB2.SFCS.READ
':this function returns PRIPART for a given Part Number

    Dim sConn As String, sSQL As String, sServer As String
    Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset, cnn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim lLineCtrl
    Set cnn = New ADODB.Connection
    sServer = "DB2OLEDB"
    cnn.Open "Provider=MSDASQL.1;Persist Security Info=False;" & _
                "User ID=;" & _
                "Extended Properties=""DSN=Shadow Direct DB2P 32-bit;" & _
                "UID=;PORT=6800;HOST=mvsb1;SUBSYS=DB2P;CPFX=SHADOW;AT=YES;" & _

    Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
'    sSQL = "SELECT Qty, Current_Op, Location, sf_cc, sf_oper, mach_grp "

    sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE (PARTNO='" & Trim(sPN) & "')"
    rst.Open sSQL, cnn, adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly, adCmdText
    If rst(0) <> "" Then
        GetPartPriorty = rst(0)
    End If

    Set rst = Nothing
    Set cnn = Nothing
End Function


glassesJust traded in my old subtlety...
for a NUANCE!tongue
