I do not really understand your problem, do you have an error or is it an understanding problem you have?
Can you post what you have working and what is not working...

I am not sure about the parameters for the IN clause to address a SQL Server 200. The Access 200 gives some examples for other DBs, here the dBase one:

SELECT CustomerID
FROM Customer
IN "" [dBASE IV; Database=C:\DBASE\DATA\SALES;]
WHERE CustomerID Like "A*";

Im pretty sure it should look something like[SQL Server 2000;  DSN = ...] if it works at all, but couldnt find anything.

The article describes the standard method for DAO connecting, it is very good but does not explain the use of Selects with IN clause. The latter is not used much, mostly data is collected in recordsets. However we need to copy lots of tables directly from SQL Server to Access and the SELECT .. INTO .. FROM .. IN .. works wonderfully. AFter some playing around I found the solution, it works like this:

1. Create DSN for the SQL Server
2. Query in Access like this: Select * from sometable IN "" [ODBC;DSN=yourdsnhere;database=yourdatabasehere;]

however for some reason i get <deleted> markers all over, I will make a new question out of that on the SQL Server forum I think.
The points are for the time youve spent on my problem anyway, thanks for that ;)

As i couldn't test the ODBC;DSN= ... i didn't dare to post it :-(  but as you found the answer yourself !

I can answer right now on those rows #deleted#:
This happens typically when the base table doesn't have a primary key field...
