Making VB recordsets from stored procedures

Making VB recordsets from stored procedures

Making VB recordsets from stored procedures

Trying to convert Access2000 VBA recordsets, based on queries, to recordsets based on stored procedures in a SQL server. How do you do that while passing parameters?

Any help, much appreciated!


RE: Making VB recordsets from stored procedures

Hi Mark,

This may be one for the access area. Roughly do the following:

Write your stored procedure, if your procedure was to bring back a bunch of records it should end:

Once you can run your stored procedure through isql fine next move on to access

In access tick a refenece to Microsoft Active Data Objects library. An have code something like:

Public Function Connect() As Boolean
Dim strconn As String
Dim adocmd as ADODB.Command
Dim adorec as ADODB.Recordset

Set m_conn = New ADODB.Connection

On Error GoTo errhandler

strconn = "driver={SQL Server};SERVER=" & SERVER & ";DATABASE="
strconn = strconn & Database & ";UID=" & UID & ";PWD=" & PWD & ";"

Set adorec = new ADODB.Recordset
set adocmd = new adodb.Command

With m_conn
.ConnectionString = strconn
.ConnectionTimeout = 15
.CursorLocation = adUseClient
End With

With adocmd
.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
.CommandText = "EXEC [Proc Name]"
.ActiveConnection = m_conn
End with

adorec = adocmd.execute

Connect = True

Set m_conn = Nothing

Exit Function

MsgBox "Error: " & Err.Number & ", " & Err.Description, vbCritical _
, "Connection Error"

Connect = False
GoTo errexit
End Function

that would get you a connection to your database (I have the databases and it connection information as a variable. It could be hard coded.

The above code is half from an object I wrote with some code I wrote on the fly. I may not read too well :-D
