Connect to an ADP using ADO...
Posted on 2004-10-08
Hi there... I'm having a horrible time getting data out of my SQL Server. I need a completely flexible, 100% code-based method of extracting data into a text file or Access table, but none seem to exist (that don't have significant setbacks). DTS's require front-end setup in Enterprise Manager, BCP requires command line access on the server, etc. etc.
So... after giving up on being able to get data directly from the SQL Server, I decided to set up an ADP and connect it to my SQL Server (kind of as a "middle man" approach)... So now, I would like to connect to that ADP using ADO (from with Excel, or Access or whatever). So what provider do I use? (the Jet provider didn't work) What's the connection string needed to do this?
P.S. I'm working in Access 2000
