When you run
DBCC DBREINDEX ('pubs.dbo.authors', UPKCL_auidind, 0)
In Enterprise Manager you get the following results

DBCC execution completed. If DBCC printed error messages, contact your system administrator.


QUESTION:
How do you run a query in VB to return the above results

SQL= "DBCC DBREINDEX ('pubs.dbo.authors', UPKCL_auidind, 0)"

conn.Execute SQL, lRet  
' Returns a -1

rs.Open SQL, conn, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly
' Does not return anything

I'm not sure about the return value, but try this:

SQL= "DBCC DBREINDEX ('pubs.dbo.authors', UPKCL_auidind, 0) WITH TABLERESULTS "
rs.Open SQL, conn, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly

adding WITH TABLERESULTS  to the query does not return anything when
rs.Open SQL, conn, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly
is run

It appears that DBCC REINDEX does not output anything but messages (won't even output WITH TABLERESULTS). Not sure that you can do this from ADO. It might be worth looking at using the SQLDMO object - I'm pretty sure that would be able to provide the results that you are looking for.
