Dim rs as New ADODB.Recordset
rs.Open "SELECT * from tblTest", etc.
Docmd.OpenQuery "qryTest"

Assume that the query qryText does the same query as "SELECT * from tblText".

Obviously, I have kept these very simple.  I know how loop through the rs recordset.  What I don't know is how do I loop through the results of the Docmd?  I know I can copy and past the SQL view from the query, but is there any way to access the results of the Docmd?

Not really. You need to use a Recordset.

OpenQuery opens the query OBJECT in the query designer ... in other words, it doesn't really "run" a query, it just opens up the designer with a particular query. To me, a better name would have been DoCmd.OpenQueryDesign "YourQueryName' ... but the Access team didn't ask me <g> ...

Ok, thanks.  I was hoping, but it simply didn't work out.
