Use Pass-truogh Query (use ODBC).
Your Query should look like that:
"SELECT <myprocedure> FROM DUAL"
This will execute the function and return any value from your procedure.

This function will return the ORACLE System Date (in-built stored procedure)
As I have no idea what your function is doing I used this example.  Replace 'SYSDATE' with your function.

For more indepth details - search Microsoft knowledge base, use keywords Pass-trough and Oracle.

Function GetOracleDate () as String
   
    Dim MyDB As Database
    Dim MyQuery As QueryDef
    Dim MySet as RecordSet
    Dim SourceConnectString As String
    Dim strSQL As String

    Set MyDB = CurrentDB()
    'Create a temporary query in memory only
    Set MyQuery = MyDB.CreateQueryDef ("")

    strSQL = "SELECT SYSDATE FROM DUAL"
    SourceConnectString = "ODBC;"
    MyQuery.Connect = SourceConnectString
    MyQuery.ReturnsRecords = True
    MyQuery.SQL = strSQL
    'Open the Recordset to return the Date
    Set MySet = MyQuery.OpenRecordSet()
    'Return the system date
    GetOracleDate = MySet!SYSDATE

End function

Have you ever got it working with your own function instead of built-in and how about using parameters with function?

Anything special I should do in case I want to pass a parameter to my function?
