I need help to get ADO recorset from query "qryTest" in VB.

Query was created in NorthWind.
Here you are SQL view:

SELECT Employees.FirstNAME, Employees.LastName
FROM Employees
WHERE (Employees.FirstNAME Like [FName] & "*" Or [FName]="") AND
(Employees.LastNAME Like [LName] & "*" Or [LName]="");


"qryTest"  has two parameters: [FName] and [LName].


In VB project I developed very simple code:


Public Sub main()
 Dim conn As ADODB.Connection
 Dim cmd As ADODB.Command
 Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset, paramFname As Parameter
 dim paramLname As Parameter
 Set conn = New ADODB.Connection
 Set cmd = New ADODB.Command
 
 
 conn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
 Data Source=" & App.Path & "\northWind.mdb; Jet OLEDB;"
 Set cmd.ActiveConnection = conn

 cmd.CommandText = "qryTest"
 cmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
 Set paramFname = cmd.CreateParameter("FName", _          adVarChar, adParamInput, 10, "a")
 cmd.Parameters.Append paramFname
 Set paramLname = cmd.CreateParameter("LName", _  adVarChar, adParamInput, 20, "")
 cmd.Parameters.Append paramLname
  Set rs = cmd.Execute(, cmd.Parameters)

 Debug.Print rs.Fields(1)
End Sub

I know, there are records there(in NorhWind),
 but RS.eof=true, I could not get any records with any values of parameters(FName or LName)

What is wrong with this code?

Not sure but I believe wildcards only work at the beginning of strings.

Are you sure you don't have On Error Resume Next somewhere?

The reason I ask is that the line:
Set rs = cmd.Execute(, cmd.Parameters)

Should just be:
Set rs = cmd.Execute

The parameters argument is for a variant array of parameter values not the Parameter collection.

Other than that it seems OK.

Wildcards work all the way

"SELECT * from YourTable WHERE YourField Like '%" & frm.YourField.Text & "%'"

Maybe I was thinking of MSSQL then, I know one of the common DB's has this limit....

Zaphod,

You are probably thinking of the following KB article
INFO: ADO's Find and Filter Support Usage of Wildcards (Q226119)

An in particular the following:

%example is NOT supported (ends with):

rs.Find "MyField Like '%St'", 0, adSearchForward, ADODB.adBookmarkCurrent

But this does not apply in this case as the Find method is not used.

Acperkins,

Did You try to run this code with "Set rs = cmd.Execute"?
Could you please, copy & paste query into NorthWind - save as "QryTest,copy & paste VB code into new VB project, get reference ADO 2.5 and run this code.
I'm getting "rs.eof=true" Error
What about You???

Thanks.

P.S. This query is working fine in Access.

Hi,

Replace your wildcards (*) with % (percentage sign.
The query won't run in access but will work when run through your vb programme.

OLEDB 4.0 acts like a reel SQL database.

This should work.
I ran into the same "bug" while copying a access query into my vb code. (ie rs.EOF)
