    Unanswered: Access/Ado/VbScript simple problem

    I am having a problem with VBScript and ADO. What I am trying to do is to get information from
    a table in an Access database and populated it into a combobox in an Outlook custom form.
    My problem is simple but I can find why the recordset cannot be set. I am using that script editor
    in Microsoft Outlook XP.
    The Connection is working but I am not getting any data from my recordset. And my table is definately full
    of data. Does anybody knows what could be wrong in my code.
    Could it be a access security issue? Do I have to put a Password and username in my connection string?

    Here's my code:


    Function Item_Open()

    Const adStateClose = 0
    Const adStateOpen = 1
    Const adOpenDynamic = 2
    Const adLockOptimistic = 3
    Const adCmdTableDirect = 512

    dim cn
    dim rs
    dim errorObject
    dim strConnection
    dim sTemp

    Set FormPage = Item.GetInspector.ModifiedFormPages("Feuille de temps")
    Set Control = FormPage.Controls("cboProjet")

    Set cn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    Set rs = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    Set errorObject = CreateObject("ADODB.Error")

    On Error Resume Next

    strConnection = "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Documents and Settings\Projects.mdb" strConnection

    if cn.State = adStateOpen then
    msgbox "Connected"
    elseif cn.State = adStateClosed then
    msgbox "Not connected"
    end if

    Set rs = cn.Execute("Select * from tbl_Projects")

    if rs.EOF and rs.BOF Then
    end if

    'rs.Open "Select * from tbl_Projets", cn, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic, adCmdTableDirect
    'sTemp = rs("Description")
    'msgbox sTemp


    End Function

    Sub ErrProcess()

    For each erroObject In rs.ActiveConnection.Errors
    msgbox "Description: " & errorObject.Description & Chr(10) & Chr(13) & _
    "Number: " & Hex(errorObject.Number)

    End Sub
    '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' '''''''''''
    Thanks in advance.

    Instead of

    Set rs = cn.Execute("Select * from tbl_Projects")


    rs.Open "Select * from tbl_Projects", cn

    Access/Ado/VbScript simple problem

    I have already tried that. The thing is that I am using a mdw access file for the security. The connection is open but I still cannot see me recordset. I do not know if it has to do with my security in my MDW. Could it be a security problem?
    I have try these 2 others connections string this but it does not seems to work.

    strConnection = "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; " & _
    "Data Source=C:\Documents and Settings\Projects.mdb;" & _
    "Jet OLEDBystemDatabase=c:\My.MDW;" & _
    "User Id=admin;Password=;"

    and this one with a DSN

    "Provider=MSDASQL;" & _
    "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};" & _
    "Dbq=C:\Documents and Settings\Projects.mdb;" & _
    "Uid=admin;" & _

    My connection is created but nothing is return in the recordset.

    Do you have an idea about my issue? thanks

    Post ADO/Access/vbscript

    I was finally able to make the thing work but it is strange. Anyway, it was due to the connection string security. Here's the answer:

    strConnection = "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Documents and Settings\Projets.mdb;User ID=Admin;Password=;

    The thing that's wrong with this string is that I am using a MDW Group administration security and it is not even checking it. I was putting that line before the Data Source but it was giving me an error:

    "Jet OLEDBystemDatabase=H:\GOD\Moderco.MDW;" & _
