I have a stored procedure which works with 2 tables.  However one of the tables is in an access database.  Can I connect to an access database through a stored procedure?

My sp so far is below

USE Planethealth_Development

DECLARE mycursor CURSOR
FOR
  SELECT * FROM tblEmails
OPEN mycursor

DECLARE @EmailID uniqueidentifier
DECLARE @Firstname varchar(40)
DECLARE @Surname varchar(40)
DECLARE @Email varchar(75)
DECLARE @Competition varchar(5)
DECLARE @Newsletter varchar(5)
DECLARE @Enquiry varchar(5)
DECLARE @Nutritional varchar(5)
DECLARE @Format varchar(4)
DECLARE @Comp_Date datetime
DECLARE @Comp_Answer varchar(100)
DECLARE @Nut_Question varchar(1000)

FETCH NEXT FROM mycursor INTO @EmailID, @Firstname, @Surname, @Email, @Competition, @Newsletter, @Enquiry, @Nutritional, @Format, @Comp_Date, @Comp_Answer, @Nut_Question

WHILE (@@FETCH_STATUS <> -1)
BEGIN
  IF (@@FETCH_STATUS <> -2)
    BEGIN    
      If NOT exists(Select * from tblEmails2 WHERE EmailID = @EMailID) Insert INTO tblEmails2 Values(@EmailID, @Firstname, @Surname, @Email, @Competition, @Newsletter, @Enquiry, @Nutritional, @Format, @Comp_Date, @Comp_Answer, @Nut_Question)
      PRINT @EmailID
    END
    FETCH NEXT FROM mycursor INTO @EmailID, @Firstname, @Surname, @Email, @Competition, @Newsletter, @Enquiry, @Nutritional, @Format, @Comp_Date, @Comp_Answer, @Nut_Question
END

CLOSE mycursor

DEALLOCATE mycursor

Many thanks

Check out this:

SELECT a.*
FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0',
   'c:\MSOffice\Access\Samples\northwind.mdb';'admin';'mypwd', Orders)
   AS a

The table "a" can now be used to be joined to as if it were a normal table.

Your above cursor might be a little faster like this:

insert into tblemails2
select * from tblEmails
where emailid not in ( select emailid from tblEmails2 )

Cheers

You can also use sp_addlinkedserver and link to any ODBC database.  Then you can always have immediate access to the Access database without having to do the openrowset first.

I have tried this

SELECT a.* FROM OPENROWSET('Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0', 'c:\DataTables.mdb', tblEmails) AS a

but I get the following error

Server: Msg 7399, Level 16, State 1, Line 3
OLE DB provider 'Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0' reported an error.  
[OLE/DB provider returned message: Could not find installable ISAM

Any ideas??

Cheers

I have long given up on this project and moved onto other stuff so I am just issuing points as I think your suggestion is good although I couldn't get it working

Thanks anyway
