Creating a table from ADO Recordset

Is there a way in code to convert an ADO Recordset into a Table?

I have a query that gives me some information for a report but I want to limit the query to only those customers that are listed in my ADO recordset. I figure that if I can convert the ADO recordset into a query then I can link the tables together to achieve this aim. If there is another way to limit the query results by the recordset then please let me know how to do that instead.

Many thanks

Darren

you can use a make-table query to create a table each time.

VBA code to read from Visual Foxpro OLE DB Provider.

Set conn = New ADODB.Connection

conn.ConnectionString = "Provider=VFPOLEDB; Data Source=\\server\data\comp_t.dbc"

conn.Open

strSQL = "SELECT * FROM ncntr WHERE nc_job='AB01' ORDER BY nc_cntr;"

Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset

With rst

  Set .ActiveConnection = conn

  .CursorType = adOpenForwardOnly

  .LockType = adLockReadOnly

  .Open strSQL

End With

In the tables container of your access database, click on:

File -> Get External Data -> Link Tables

You navigate to the SqlServer, Oracle, Access DB or other ODBC data source in the files of type pulldown on the bottom of the dialog that appears.

This will link the table and its structure for your use.

Good Luck!!

Thanks but I don't want to create a linked table as my customers source data is in a different location to mine.

Different logical location or different physical location?

How do you reference the ADO recordset?

you can insert the Ado recordsets to a table.

create a new recordset from the destination table
then you can use

do until rst.eof
with newRs
       .addNew
       !Field1=rst!field1
       !field2=rst!field2
       .update
end with
rst.movenext
loop

LennyGray, different physical location. I stored the data location in a parameter at the moment and use that to generate the ADO connection string.

capricorn1, I have accepted your solution as the answer. In the meantime I actually wrote my own routine to create and populate a table but it is pretty similar. I will post it below for anyone elses benefit. I was hoping there might be an inbuilt function but nevermind.

Thank you both for your input.

Private Function CreateLocalTable()
 

    Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset

    Dim strSQL As String, strCustomer As String

    

    '' delete existing tCustomers Table

    strSQL = "DROP TABLE tCustomers;"

    CurrentDb.Execute strSQL

        

    '' create the tCustomers table

    strSQL = "CREATE TABLE tCustomers (CustomerAccount TEXT(8));"

    CurrentDb.Execute strSQL

    

    '' create the customers subset recordset

    Set rstUnits = GetCustomersRecordset(Me.cboAreaManager.Value)

    

    With rst

    

        '' go to the first record

        .MoveFirst

        

        '' loop through the units

        Do Until .EOF

            '' insert into tCustomers table

            strCustomer = .Fields("nc_cntr").Value

            strSQL = "INSERT INTO tCustomers (CustomerAccount) VALUES ('" & strCustomer & "');"

            CurrentDb.Execute (strSQL)

            

            '' move to next record

            .MoveNext

        '' end loop

        Loop

        

    End With

    

End Function
