Problems with OpenDataSource Name: and Word Merge

Problems with OpenDataSource Name: and Word Merge

Problems with OpenDataSource Name: and Word Merge

(OP)
I want to merge a Word document with a record in an Access (.adp) table - in SQL.  I cannot get the syntax correct in the .OpenDataSource Name: =  or how to get the SQLStatement:= defined correctly.  My code now is:

 sDBPath = "Y:\xxx\xxx\mydbname.adp"

  With Doc.MailMerge
 .OpenDataSource Name:=sdBPath, _
  LinkToSource:="True", _
  SQLStatement:="SELECT * from dbo.GI_mytblename"
                 
etc...
etc..

Any help is really appreciated. Thanks.

RE: Problems with OpenDataSource Name: and Word Merge

with Doc.MailMerge.OpenDataSource  
      .name = sdBPath
      .LinkToSource ="True"
      .SQLStatement ="SELECT * from dbo.GI_mytblename"
