OpenDatabase Error (-7748) with Sybase

Hi experts heres a tricky one!

I'm trying to connect to a Sybase Databse and an Access database, the idea is to pass information from access to Sybase. I'm using DAO Database and Recordsets in both cases, but when trying to run a select statement to gather the information I need to validate I get the -7748 reserved error with the legend "There is no message for this Error".

I'm defining my variables inside a module like this:

Global wrkJet As Workspace
Global MyDB As Database
Global MyDBSyb As Database
Global rs As DAO.Recordset
Global rs2 As DAO.Recordset
Global rssyb As DAO.Recordset


And the code in my form goes like this:

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Set wrkJet = CreateWorkspace("", "admin", "")
    Set MyDB = wrkJet.OpenDatabase("codigos.mdb")
    Set MyDBSyb = wrkJet.OpenDatabase("Telephony", _
    dbDriverNoPrompt, False, _
    "ODBC;DATABASE=telephony;UID=uid;PWD=pwd;DSN=telephony")
End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
    strsql = "SELECT usuario.idext, usuario.usu_noext, usuario.usu_nom, usuario.usu_pwd," _
    & " usuario.usu_cod1, usuario.usu_cod2" _
    & " FROM usuario ORDER BY usuario.usu_noext"
    Set rssyb = MyDBSyb.OpenRecordset(strsql)


   more code here .....


I have used some similar code for connecting to sybase with no problem, actualy I already check the database and do some querys using other tools (Microsoft Query) to check if there was a problem with the Db or ODBC, but sadly with no luck.

Thanks in advance!!

I would go with ADO


Public MyDB As ADODB.Connection
Public MyDBSyb As ADODB.Connection
Public rs As ADODB.Recordset
Public rs2 As ADODB.Recordset
Public rssyb As ADODB.Recordset


And the code in my form goes like this:

Private Sub Form_Load()

    Set MyDB = New ADODB.Connection
    Set MyDBSyb = New ADODB.Connection

    MyDB.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
           "Data Source=c:\somepath\myDb.mdb;" & _
           "User Id=admin;" & _
           "Password="

    MyDBSyb.Open "Provider=Sybase.ASEOLEDBProvider;" & _
           "Srvr=myASEServer,5000;" & _
           "Catalog=myDBName;" & _
           "User Id=myUserName;" & _
           "Password=myUserPassword"

End Sub

Private Sub Command2_Click()
    strsql = "SELECT usuario.idext, usuario.usu_noext, usuario.usu_nom, usuario.usu_pwd," _
    & " usuario.usu_cod1, usuario.usu_cod2" _
    & " FROM usuario ORDER BY usuario.usu_noext"
 
    Set rssyb = New ADODB.Recordset
    rssyb.Open strsql, MyDBSyb, adOpenStatic, adLockOptemistic

Hi ecantu:
Which line does the error occur on?

The last line in the Command2_Click() event:

Set rssyb = MyDBSyb.OpenRecordset(strsql)

I change the code to ADO where I used the Sybase Db and keep using DAO for Access and worked fine (for my puorpuose anyway :p)


Thanks leonstryker!

You are right to keep it that way.  DAO works great with Access, but it was never meant to be used with anything else.

Thanks for the grade,
