I'm trying to execute a store procedure (just simple like 'TRUNCATE TABLE tablename') through a pass through in Access, but it give me a run-time error '3325' saying 'Pass-through query with ReturnsRecords property set to True did not return any records', please let me know why

Because an action such as 'TRUNCATE TABLE' doesn't return any records.
You should set your Returns Records property as False in the query properties sheet (assuming it's a persisted querydef and not just created on the fly).

Open the query in design mode and open the properties window.  Set the Returns Records property to No.  Access generally expects a query to return rows and this setting property will tell it not to expect rows.

You still get the error if you open the query by double clicking it in the DB window / Nav Pain?
A problem with the server login is just that.
You need to make sure you have valid credentials assigned.
What is your query's Connect property (obfuscating any sensitive details as required of course - i.e. don't give us all your password ;-).

And does the passthrough have the same Connect property as that linked table?

How do I set the connect property in the query so that it will point to the right datasource without having it popup to select the datasource?

It was just "ODBC;" then I added PSF_GEN so "ODBC;PSF_GEN" which is the name of the server, and it's working now. But if I don't want to create a passthrough query, but instead having a docmd, what would it be?
DoCmd.RunSQL ("Truncate Table....) or how do I specify the connnection in the docmd statement?

You're sending a command to the server.
You can't trivially just execute that locally - that's exactly what passthroughs are for.
If you enter a valid Connect property you won't be prompted for anything.

If you want to execute commands in a more ad-hoc manner then you can use a variation of the theme in this recent thread - but it'll take a bit of VBA understanding.
