Issues using ADODB connection to DB2 table

Hello,

I'm having troubles connecting to a DB2 table (or setting up the ADODB connection) It works fine when I'm hitting an access table, but for some reason will not work with the DB2 table. The table, of course is linked via ODBC and I can connect to it when running an Access query. I'm trying to populate a single text box on a form with a count derived from the following query. I'm getting the error message: "Run-time error "-2147217565(80040e37) [IBM][CLI Driver][DB2] SQL0204N "DIW07.PROD_VLTC900A_CLM" is an undefined name. SQLSTATE=42704.

The only thing i can think of is that it's taking my username "DIW07" and using it as the database name? I'm not sure why this would be an issue as the table is linked... it's a real pain... Any help would be HUGELY appreciated!


Here is the code I'm using:



Private Sub CalcKim_Click()
Dim rsActivity As ADODB.Recordset
Dim cnUDB As ADODB.Connection
Set cnUDB = New ADODB.Connection
With cnUDB
.Provider = "MSDASQL"
.ConnectionString = "Data Source=db2psn"
.Properties("Prompt") = adPromptCompleteRequired
.Open
End With
 
 
'0-30 days
sSQL = ""
sSQL = sSQL & "SELECT Count(I_SYS_CLM)AS thirtydayKim "
sSQL = sSQL & "FROM PROD_VLTC900A_CLM p INNER JOIN Teams t ON p.Custodian = t.CustodianID "
sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE p.PendingStatus = 'PC' And t.Manager = 'Kim' "
'And DateDiff('d',[DatePending],Date()) <=30"
Set rsActivity = New ADODB.Recordset
With rsActivity
.CursorType = adOpenForwardOnly
.CursorLocation = adUseServer
.LockType = adLockReadOnly
.Open sSQL, cnUDB
End With
Me.k2 = rsActivity!thirtydayKim

It's using DIW07 as the database owner or schema name.  

But no matter, if you have links to PROD_VLTC900A_CLM and teams tables, then you are going after the count the wrong way.   Store your join in a query:

    SELECT * FROM PROD_VLTC900A_CLM p INNER JOIN Teams t ON p.Custodian = t.CustodianID


and then retrieve it:

me.k2=  DCOUNT("I_SYS_CLM","YOURQUERYNAME","PendingStatus = 'PC' And t.Manager = 'Kim'")

Okay,

So you are saying create an access query with SELECT * FROM PROD_VLTC900A_CLM p INNER JOIN Teams t ON p.Custodian = t.CustodianID  and then call it in the code?

Yes, access the data through the linked tables instead of an ADO connection

Okay,

So I've created a query that selects all of the data and joins the two tables. For the On_click event of the command button i've gotten rid of all of the code and just have:

Me.k2 = DCount("I_SYS_CLM", "qryDB2", "C_STA_CLM = 'PC' And Teams.Manager = 'Kim'")

Now when I run, I get the error "Run Time error 2001 - you canceled the previous operation" and it highlights the me.k2 line. It will not even prompt for the connection to the DB2 table.

Got it!

simple fix... needed to get rid of the "Teams." seeing as I'm pulling from an existing query.


Thanks a bunch!
