    Unanswered: MS Access, sql-server and stored procedures


    I am trying to make a local MS-Access database that gets some of its data from our central SQL-Server based contact register. The database is supposed to be a "on the road" database and I am trying to use the stored procedures that already are there in the SQL-server database to populate the Access-database with data. The slickest solution would be to just push a button to update the access-database with the data from the sql-server (like Hit the road button)

    How do i connect to the sql-server-database and call the SP to update a local tabel in the database

    best regards

    Re: MS Access, sql-server and stored procedures

    If you are using ADO is to call the Execute method from the Connection object. Here is an example:

    Dim cn as ADODB.connection

    Set cn = new ADODB.connection

    cn.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=DataBaseName;Data Source=ServerName"


    cn.Execute "sp_Test"


    Set cn = Nothing

    This is just what I was looking for. Now I can move forward... xellent.
    best regards. I also found out that I could create a Pass Through question in Access (but in swedish it was refferred as a "Direct question" and I didn't work that out in other forum topics that I ran into)

    Problem solved
