How to use ADODB from VBA to retrieve / update SQL Server nvarchar, text, and ntext

I'm enhancing a customer's application that has an Access 2002 front end mdb to a SQL Server back end. I use stored procedures to select and update data. Everything was working fine until I encountered some tables with large varchar, nvarchar, text, and ntext columns. In those cases I can't figure out what type to assign to my adodb parameters. For example, if I have as simple table with:

ID as indentity primary key
SVC as varchar(100)
LVC as varchar(4000)
SNVC as nvarchar(100)
LNVC as nvarchar(4000)
T1 as text
T2 as ntext

What does my VBA adodb command parameter look like for each of the above for a select stored procedure, i.e.

cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@SVC", advarchar, adParamInput, 100)
cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@LVC", ad?, adParamInput, ?)
cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@SNVC", ad?, adParamInput, ?)
cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@LNVC", ad?, adParamInput, ?)
cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@T1", ad?, adParamInput, ?)
cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@T2", ad?, adParamInput, ?)

Thx

Hi rmk



ADO DataType Enum
http://www.able-consulting.com/ADODataTypeEnum.htm

' you can pass the value too as the last param, done the first one for you
dim sSVC as String
sSVC = "SomeString"
' or
' sSVC = me.sometextbox

cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@SVC", adVarChar, adParamInput, 100, sSVC)
cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@LVC", adVarChar, adParamInput, 4000)
cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@SNVC", adVarWChar, adParamInput, 100)
cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@LNVC", adVarWChar, adParamInput, 4000)
cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@T1", adLongVarChar, adParamInput, 2147483647)
cmd.Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@T2", adLongVarChar, adParamInput, 2147483647)
