Hi Rayau,

This coming straight from the helpfile

Sub OpenConnectionX()

      Dim wrkODBC As Workspace
      Dim conPubs As Connection
      Dim conPubs2 As Connection
      Dim conPubs3 As Connection
      Dim conLoop As Connection

      ' Create ODBCDirect Workspace object.
      Set wrkODBC = CreateWorkspace("NewODBCWorkspace", _
            "admin", "", dbUseODBC)

      ' Open Connection object using supplied information in
      ' the connect string. If this information were
      ' insufficient, you could trap for an error rather than
      ' go to an ODBC Driver Manager dialog box.

MsgBox "Opening Connection1..."
      Set conPubs = wrkODBC.OpenConnection("Connection1", _
            dbDriverNoPrompt, , _
            "ODBC;DATABASE=pubs;UID=sa;PWD=;DSN=Publishers")

      ' Open read-only Connection object based on information
      ' you enter in the ODBC Driver Manager dialog box.
      MsgBox "Opening Connection2..."
      Set conPubs2 = wrkODBC.OpenConnection("Connection2", _
            dbDriverPrompt, True, "ODBC;DSN=Publishers;")

      ' Open read-only Connection object by entering only the

' missing information in the ODBC Driver Manager dialog
      ' box.
      MsgBox "Opening Connection3..."
      Set conPubs3 = wrkODBC.OpenConnection("Connection3", _
            dbDriverCompleteRequired, True, _
            "ODBC;DATABASE=pubs;DSN=Publishers;")

      ' Enumerate the Connections collection.
      For Each conLoop In wrkODBC.Connections
            Debug.Print "Connection properties for " & _
                  conLoop.Name & ":"

            With conLoop
                  ' Print property values by explicitly calling each

' Property object; the Connection object does not
                  ' support a Properties collection.
                  Debug.Print "    Connect = " & .Connect
                  ' Property actually returns a Database object.
                  Debug.Print "    Database[.Name] = " & _
                        .Database.Name
                  Debug.Print "    Name = " & .Name
                  Debug.Print "    QueryTimeout = " & .QueryTimeout
                  Debug.Print "    RecordsAffected = " & _
                        .RecordsAffected
                  Debug.Print "    StillExecuting = " & _

StillExecuting
                  Debug.Print "    Transactions = " & .Transactions
                  Debug.Print "    Updatable = " & .Updatable
            End With

      Next conLoop

      conPubs.Close
      conPubs2.Close
      conPubs3.Close
      wrkODBC.Close

End Sub


It creates a directworkspace and then opens an connection to a specified database.

Hope this helps

Hahahahhaha,

Well, well I'm a real Bear too, so I have to ask if this is a joke or something thought we were after the Bulls :O).
