Hi JezzaKashel.

Like that :

Function Func(tmp As ADODB.Recordset)
   ...
End Function

Dim cmd as ADODB.Command

cmd.CommandText = "DELETE * FROM X WHERE Y = Z"

Sub DoSomethingWithCommand(cmd as ADODB.Command)

    cmd.ActiveConnection = connection
    cmd.Execute

End Sub

Vin.

These don't seem to work. I either get an invalid qualifer message, or type mismatch. A standard select command works perfectly

Have you coded up your delete statement properly? Try cutting and pasting it into an access query or sqlserver query analyser

I would suggest that you pass your delete sql query as string instead of a ado command. This prove to be much easier.


To call this function

DeleteRecordset <dsn name>, <SQL query>

Example

Dim SQL As String

SQL = DELETE * FROM A"

DeletRecordset bibliodsn, SQL

********************************************************************

Public Sub DeleteRecordset(ByVal ConnectionString As String, ByVal Source As String)

On Error GoTo ErrorHandler

    objConnection.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    objConnection.Open ConnectionString, "sa", ""

    Set objCommand = New ADODB.Command
    objCommand.CommandType = adCmdText
    objCommand.CommandText = Source
    Set objCommand.ActiveConnection = objConnection
   
    objCommand.Execute (Source)
   
    Set objCommand = Nothing
    objConnection.Close
   
End Sub

***********************************************************
