We switched the adp to a replication of the original database and now when we try to run an DoComd.openStoredProcedure "oapr_ImportSafer" the error Microsoft access cannot find the object "oapr_ImportSafer" appears. Also all of the queries now have an (dbo) at the end of thier name in the query object box.

Keking,

Probably "oapr_ImportSafer" is not a valid procedure name or it is not created.

One thing I noticed, or maybe it is only typographical error in your part, the code you run must be:
DoCmd.OpenStoredProcedure "ProdedureName"

You'll need to strip off the "dbo." from the query, or change all your code to reference that new name. Here's a small routine that will remove the preceding dbo.:

Dim qdf As DAO.QueryDef
Dim dbs As DAO.Database

Set dbs = Currentdb

For each qdf in dbs.QueryDefs
  If Left(qdf.Name, 4) = "dbo." then
    qdf.Name = Right(qdf.Name, Len(qdf.Name) - 4)
  End If
Next

Test this FIRST on a copy of the db to make sure it works as planned (and make a Backup before doing ANYTHING).

Hi,

You said that it is a replicated copy of the database - did the stored procedures replicate? Normally it is tables and data and a few indexes that replicate. I'm picking that maybe a backup and restore for testing would work better in this instance.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

well it is a pieced together database. I copied all the queries over by hand. it is a long story... As long as I continue to use the adp from my computer I can switch betweent the two sql servers without a problem. but as soon as I copy the adp to another users computer I run into this problem. Is it a permissions problem?

Hi,

How is the adp connecting to SQL? SQL Authentication - with a SQL username/password, or Trusted/Windows authentication?

That is, I agree with your suspicion that the other user doesn't have the rights or permissions that you do on the SQL Server. Especially if the database in question is cobbled together by yourself, then permissions may not have been a priority.

It is using a Trusted / windows connection. We have access to the sql server as administrators..but the the other user does not. We are hoping we don't have to make him an adminstrator.

Hi,

You don't need to make the other use an administrator.

Rough Steps
Grant access to database
Grant select to table(s)|view(s)

Hi,

On the views or tables in question, execute the query

grant select on dbo.TableName to user

Note also you can review permissions by rightclicking on the object, select Properties, and then review the Permissions settings (in the left side menu). This machine has Management Studio Express, but the dialog should be the same.

is there a way to grant this to all the views at once? doing this one at a time for each user is a large task.

Hi,

There are several methods for managing users.

The first is to not use the user, but use the windows groups.

The second is to use the roles within the database, combined wiht the schemas. That is, add the Human resources group to the data reader role for the database, and the datawriter role for the HR schema.

If it is a big job, suggest using scripts, which can be corrected and rerrun.

I get the feeling you should get a database consultant to look over your shoulder at what you are doing. It appears that there are some fundementals missing in your setup that would make your job a lot easier.

Regards
  David
