Dim TempRS As Recordset
Set TempRS = DataEnvironment1.Connection1.Execute("SELECT * FROM Students")

"Students" is a table.

Why doesn't it work?

Assuming you've opened the connection correctly, then try:

   Dim RS as ADODB.RecordSet
   Set RS = New ADODB.RecordSet
   RS.Open SQL, Connection1, adOpenForwardOnly

That was enough:

Dim TempRS As ADODB.Recordset
Set TempRS = DataEnvironment1.Connection1.Execute("SELECT * FROM Students")
