pass through query not working correctly via VBA in Access

I am trying to set a passthrough query to run via VBA the code grabs the product ID and puts that in the SQL for the passthrough it them is suppose to run a append query that runs off of the pass though to append the records  into a table in access.  If I set this up in access it runs fine, but when I try to run it via the VBA code I get an error when I get to the append query "0100 get samples"
The error says Cannot find file c:\Documents and settings\amcfall\My Documents\siebel.mbd.  

Something happens to the passthrough when the code exectues, the SQL looks ok but the connection part doesn't, I first have to reset the query type to passthrough and then reset the ODBC connection information in the property sheet, so I assume what is happening is that the code is not correct to set up the passthrough in the VBA...

 With rstTest
      Do Until rstTest.EOF
      sProdId = rstTest!ROW_ID
      CurrentDb.QueryDefs.Delete "qry_samples"
     Set crsePassThru = CurrentDb.CreateQueryDef("qry_samples")
        With crsePassThru
          .ReturnsRecords = True
       
            sSQL = "select sa.pr_prdint_id, sa.target_per_id, sa.target_ou_id, co.email_addr" _
                                        & " from SIEBEL.s_evt_act sa," _
                                        & " SIEBEL.s_contact co" _
                                        & " where sa.target_per_id = co.row_id" _
                                        & " and pr_prdint_id = '" & sProdId & "'"
                                       
            .SQL = sSQL

            crsePassThru.Close
        End With
       
    DoCmd.OpenQuery "0100 get samples", acViewNormal, acEdit

You should build a pass through querydef and just modify the .sql property, save and execute. While you're at it you can build the connect string also.

I'll post some code shortly.

This covers the connect string, getting user name and populating the .connect property of the querydef.

'I use constants just to store basic connect string info
' if using trusted rather than mixed mode substitute Trusted_Connection=yes for PWD.
Public Const strConnect1 = "ODBC;DRIVER={SQL SERVER};SERVER=999.999.999.999\SQLEXPRESS;DATABASE=MySQLDb;UID="
Public Const strConnect2 = ";PWD=xxxxx;ADDRESS=999.999.999.999;"
'call to api th grab user name
Private Declare Function GetUserName Lib "ADVAPI32.dll" Alias "GetUserNameA" (ByVal lpBuffer As String, nSize As Long) As Long
Public gUserNm as string
 
'get user name, you'll use it in connect string
Public Function GetCurrentUserName() As String
On Error GoTo Err_GetCurrentUserName
 Dim lpBuff As String * 255
 Dim ret As Long, Username As String
   ret = GetUserName(lpBuff, 255)
   Username = Left(lpBuff, InStr(lpBuff, Chr(0)) - 1)
   GetCurrentUserName = Username & ""
   gUsrNm = GetCurrentUserName
Exit_GetCurrentUserName:
    Exit Function
Err_GetCurrentUserName:
        MsgBox Err.Description
        Resume Exit_GetCurrentUserName

'connect string property of pass thru querydef gets updated here

Dim db As DAO.Database
Set db = CurrentDb

I guess that SIEBEL didn't register with me either...  You can modify the Constants for your info, but I think that you're going to have to provide a network library reference in the connect string also. But I really don't know.

You can call the functions, etc in a forms OnLoad event if a form opens when your app does. But since you probably aren't using Windows authentication, the GetUser probably won't help you. The connect string can also be put in the onload event. Does that help?


The Oracle DBAs at my clients won't allow me to connect at all due to some high security data. You will find connect string information at http://www.connectionstrings.com/. I know they have an Oracle section, but since I've never had a need, I've never checked it out.

I wish that I could be of more help on this
