I have created an Access application using an mdb file that resides on my local C: drive and the application works fine. This application calls a Sybase Stored Procedure for which I do not have the ability to update.
The Sybase Stored Procedure is in the attached code snippet.
I use the following ODBC configuration for the Sybase connection:
ODBC Data Source Administrator
User DSN tab
User Data Sources:  
Name                             Driver                                                               Add
PAP_ED                         DataDirect  4.0 Sybase Wire Protocol             Remove            
                                                                                                              Configure  <-- click on

4) ODBC Sybase Wire Protocol Driver Setup
    General tab
    Data Source Name         PAP_ED_TEST1
    Network Library Name   Winsock
    Network Address          nyuu,10467
    Database Name             a2query

    Test Connect button    <-- click on
    Logon to Sybase      
    Network Library                   WInsock      
    Network Address                nyuudb01,10467
    Login ID                                nitod
    Password                            ******
    Database                             a2query
In the attached code below the Stored Procedure is the code I use in the Access application to
retrieve the data from the Stored Procedure.

Do you know what revisions I would make to this application when I move it to a Network Drive
so that it will continue to work with the Sybase Stored Procedure ?

I tried to execute the application as is and I can successfully call the Sybase Stored Procedure when I execute the application from my local C: drive but when I execute this Access application from a Network drive, I DO NOT retrieve back any data from the Sybase Stored Procedure.
