Hi guys,
can you help me with this.
I'm trying to use a paramter SQL pass thru query from an access db using QueryDef.
To prove the pooint I'm using the Northwind DB supplied.

Private Sub Text0_AfterUpdate()
On Error GoTo ErrStuff
Dim db As Database
Set db = CurrentDb()
Dim rs As Recordset
Dim qdef As QueryDef
Set qdef = db.CreateQueryDef("")
qdef.Connect = "ODBC;DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=CROWTHORNXXX;UID=SA;PWD=XXX;DATABASE=Northwind;"
qdef.SQL = "CustOrderHist '" & Me.Text0 & "'"

Set rs = qdef.OpenRecordset()

exitHere:
Exit Sub
ErrStuff:
Debug.Print Errors(0).Description
MsgBox Err.Number & " " & Err.Description
Resume exitHere

End Sub


if I run this code I keep getting
The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot find the input table or query 'MSysConf'.  Make sure it exists and that its name is spelled correctly.

Now I understand that this is a table that would exist in the SQL database. I haven't created it nor do i wish to. I just want to be able to use a simple pass thru query with a parameter using access front end and sql back end.

Surely this is a simple task. but I can't get it to work. I feel it's something to do with the connect string. I've copied the connection string from a DSN taht I created.

Can anyone help?

Regards

Malcolm

That appears to be the case, from the URL from Micorsoft.

I don't think that it does as I almost have it working without the MSysConf file.
In my code I seem top have missed the bit about the local access query

My code has ended up as this

On Error GoTo ErrStuff
Dim db As Database

Set db = CurrentDb()
Dim Rs As Recordset
Dim qdef As QueryDef
Set qdef = db.QueryDefs("qry_custorderhist")
qdef.Connect = "ODBC;DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=(local);UID=SA;PW=xxx;DATABASE=Northwind;Trusted_Connection=Yes"
qdef.sql = "exec custorderhist '" & Me.Text0 & "'"
'DoCmd.OpenQuery "Qry_custorderhist"
qdef.Close
Set qdef = Nothing
Set db = Nothing
DoCmd.OpenForm "frm2", acFormDS
frm2.Forms.RecordSource = "qry_custorderhist"
exitHere:
Exit Sub
ErrStuff:
Debug.Print Errors(0).Description
MsgBox Err.Number & " " & Err.Description
qdef.Close
Set qdef = Nothing
Rs.Close
Set Rs = Nothing
Resume exitHere
'

End Sub
