I can't figure out why this is not working...  I am getting an invalid SQL Statement everytime I run it....  Thanks in advance...

----------------  CODE  ----------------

Sub MainRun()
    Dim conOracle As New Connection
    Dim recOracle As New Recordset
    Dim StrTable
    Dim ICCount, OCCount

    StrTable = "RPT_ADMIN"
   
    ' Opens a connection to the Database
    conOracle.Open "Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};Server=RPT2;Uid=RPT_User;Pwd=RPT;"
   
    ' Opens table from database
    recOracle.Open StrTable, conOracle
   
    ' Adds record for each rep to database
    With recOracle
        Do Until recOracle.EOF
            If !COLLECTION_ACTIVITY_CODE = "IC" Then
                ICCount = ICCount + 1
            ElseIf !COLLECTION_ACTIVITY_CODE = "OC" Then
                OCCount = OCCount + 1
            End If
        .MoveNext
        Loop
        ' Closes table and database connections '
        recOracle.Close: conOracle.Close
    End With
End Sub

Hi try this
strTable should be select query on the table like

strTable ="select * from RPT_Admin"

for adding new record in the DB
recOracle.addnew
at the start of operation and when it is complete just update the dataset

recOracle.update
