Append records using two variables

I have a table: tblSchedule in SQL Server with fields:

Schedule_ID (int PRIMARYKEY Autoincrementing), Schedule_CostType (char 16), Schedule_Section (char 16) , Schedule_No (char 16), Schedule_Order (float 8), Schedule_Desc (char 32), Schedule_Unit (char 16), Schedule_Qty (real 4) ,tender_ID (int FK)

I want to select all records where Tender_ID = a variable  tender_ID_Original
and append them in the same table but with Tender_ID = a variable  tender_ID_New
(Note: there are no integrity problems as The FK tender_ID_New already exists)

I have written the sp :

(@tender_ID_Original int,
@tender_ID_New int)

dbo.tblSchedule(Schedule_CostType, Schedule_Section, Schedule_No, Schedule_Order, Schedule_Desc, Schedule_Unit, Schedule_Qty,tender_ID)

SELECT     Schedule_CostType,Schedule_No,  Schedule_Section, Schedule_Order, Schedule_Desc, Schedule_Unit, Schedule_Qty,@tender_ID_New
FROM         dbo.tblSchedule
WHERE       Tender_ID = @tender_ID_Original

When I run it asks for the variables OK and seems to run OK but I get the message 'The stored procedure executed successfully but did not return records"
What have i done wrong?

also I want to run thus sp in Access using VBA code but I'm not sure how to pass the variables

Private Sub btnAppendSchedule_Click()
Dim tender_ID_Original, tender_ID_New  As Integer
Dim vSQL As String

tender_ID_Original = Forms!frmRepeatSchedule.cboTenderOld.Column(0)
tender_ID_New = Forms!frmRepeatSchedule.txtTenderNew

vSQL = " procNewSchedule ??????? "


End Sub

Thanks in advance

Hi Doozy,
not sure for the vba code...

but try removing the set nocount lines
that should then return the number of rows affected  which
would qualify as a resultset...

also its good practice to end all procedures with

good luck

It's doing an insert so doesn't return a resultset so you haven't done anything wrong.

For executing an sp in vba see

in can be simpler as

dim objcmd, rowsaffected
set objcmd = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objCmd.Parameters.append objcmd.createparameter("",adInteger, adParamInput,,tender_ID_Original)
objCmd.Parameters.append objcmd.createparameter("",adInteger, adParamInput,,tender_ID_New)
objCmd.ActiveConnection = objConn    ' need connection here
objCmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
objCmd.CommandText = "procNewSchedule"
objCmd.Execute rowsaffected
set objCmd.ActiveConnection = nothing

Thanks Lowfatspread, your answer got that part working - I'll give you half points (OK?)

nigelrivett - your code won't compile in Access VBA - it highlights 'Server' and says variable not defined

So 125 points still for anyone who can solve how to pass the variables

Points to Lowfatspread
I'll resubmit second pert of question

You will need to install MDAC for ADO to work.
