With ADO, I thought it was

dim conn as ADODB.Connection
dim rs as ADODB.Recordset
dim sql as string
sql="put your queryname here"

conn.Open DSN, ...
rs.open sql conn,1,3

Yes you can.

To run a query in access from vb, first you must open the database.

    Set MyDB = OpenDatabase("C:\Yourdatabase.mdb")

To execute an append/update/delete query, use the execute method:

    MyDB.Execute "Your Query Name"

To retrieve data from a query, use openrecordset method:

    Set rstRecordset = MyDB.OpenRecordset("Your Query Name", dbOpenDynaset)

    With rstRecordset
         ...do something
         ...do something
    End With

    rstRecordset.close
