Display an ADO recordset as a datasheet in MS Access data project

I am using Access 2002 as an adp front end to SQL Server 2000.  I want to create a recordset in ADO using parameters selected by the user and display it in a datasheet view, the same display result you get from DoCmd.OpenQuery and DoCmd.OpenStoredProcedure.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm afraid that's not going to happen.
You could have a form (in datasheet mode) with the appropriately bound controls in it - and then set that form's recordset to be the recordset you've opened.
But a spontaneous datasheet from a recordset held in code isn't possible.
(You could write it out in a structured order to a file or something - but that isnt the same as a datasheet type grid)

Thanks for clarifying this issue.  A related follow-up question.  Is it possible to open a stored procedure as a datasheet AND pass it some parameters or can you only open sprocs that require no parameters?
Leigh PurvisDatabase DeveloperCommented:
Well, bear in mind that it's something I'd never want to do anyway... I certainly don't know of a way that you'd do that (without the parameter prompts popping up at you).

You should really be looking to use forms for such things.
You gain so much more control.
