I have code that works in DAO - I need to convert the whole project to ADO

I have a convertion table at http://www.databasejournal.com/features/mssql/article.php/1490571
I am working from but I am still stuck after   'setting the recordset
Can anyone advise me? I have tried
Dim gr As GridEX
''Dim Rs As Recordset
Dim Rs As New ADODB.Recordset
    Me.grDropDown.Visible = False 'to be sure the control is hidden
    Set gr = Me.grDropDown.Object
    'setting Bound and Replace columns
    gr.ReplaceColumnIndex = "Status"
    gr.BoundColumnIndex = "StatusID"

  Dim strSQL As String
    strSQL = "StatusQry"

    Rs.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    Rs.Open strSQL, CurrentProject.Connection, adOpenStatic, adLockReadOnly
  '' Rs.Open ("StatusQry")
  ''  Set Rs = CurrentDB.openRecordset("StatusQry")
    'setting the recordset
Set gr.Recordset = Rs
    Set gr = Me.GridEX1.Object
    gr.Columns("Status").EditType = jgexEditCombo
    Set gr.Columns("Status").DropDownControl = Me.grDropDown.Object 'setting the dropdown control for the column
    Set gr = Me.GRIDEX2.Object
    gr.Columns("Status").EditType = jgexEditCombo
    Set gr.Columns("Status").DropDownControl = Me.grDropDown.Object
