Executing Stored Procedure from Access

Posted on 2008-06-11
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I'm trying to run a stored procedure with parameters from Access.

I get an "object required" error message on the first parameter line.
If I remove the parameters, I get "The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot find the input table or query 'usp_printerorder_pending'. Make sure it exists and that its name is spelled corretly."

How do I set the parameters correctly and does it have something to do with not being able to find the stored procedure? And if so, how do I make it see the stored procedure?
Dim cmd As ADODB.Command

    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset


    Set cmd = New ADODB.Command

    Set cmd.ActiveConnection = CurrentProject.Connection


    cmd.CommandText = "usp_printerorder_pending"

    cmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc


    'Set the parameters

    cmd.Parameters.Append (cmd.CreateParameter("@FromDate", adDate, adParamInput, 10, Me.dteFrom.Value))

    cmd.Parameters.Append (cmd.CreateParameter("@ToDate", adDate, adParamInput, 10, Me.dteTo.Value))

    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset

    Set rs = cmd.Execute

    Me.frmPrinterOrdersub.Form.Recordset = rs


    Set rs = Nothing

    Set cmd = Nothing

Is your database set up as project, i.e. the name ends .adp?

If so this code should work
Function ExecSP(strSQL As String, Optional intTimeout As Integer = 360, Optional blnReturnError As Boolean = False) As String

' runs sql command

' creates log entry in command_log

' If there is an error than return it otherwise return ""

    Dim s_sql_log As String

    Dim objCmd As New ADODB.Command

    s_sql_log = _

        "INSERT INTO command_log " & _

        "(command, datetime_sent, user_sent) " & _

        "VALUES ('" & Replace(strSQL, "'", "''") & "', GETDATE(), '" & Environ("user") & "')"

    ' create log entry

    DoCmd.RunSQL s_sql_log

    ' run sql command with 3 minute timeout

    With objCmd

        .ActiveConnection = CurrentProject.Connection

        .CommandType = adCmdText

        .CommandText = strSQL

        .CommandTimeout = intTimeout

        If blnReturnError = True Then

            On Error Resume Next


            If Err.Number <> 0 Then

                ExecSP = Err.Description


                ExecSP = ""

            End If

            On Error GoTo 0



        End If

    End With

    Set objCmd = Nothing

End Function

Referencing the owner and server name etc has no effect. I'm not setup using a project.

I solved it myself.
    Dim cnn As ADODB.Connection

    Dim cmd As ADODB.Command

    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

    Set cnn = New ADODB.Connection

    cnn.Open "Driver={SQL Server};Server=SOY-SQL;Database=SOYSourceSQL;UID=xxxx;Password=xxxxxx"

    cnn.CursorLocation = adUseClient

    Set cmd = New ADODB.Command 'New Command


    With cmd

        .ActiveConnection = cnn

        ' .ActiveConnection = Application.CurrentProject.Connection

        .CommandText = "usp_printerorder_pending"

        .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc

        .Prepared = True


        .Parameters("@FromDate").Value = Me.dteFrom.Value

        .Parameters("@ToDate").Value = Me.dteTo.Value

        Set rs = .Execute

    End With


    Set Me.frmPrinterOrdersub.Form.Recordset = rs


    Set rs = Nothing

    Set cmd = Nothing
