How do I pass multiple criteria into a single parameter in vba?

I'd like to be able to pass multiple criteria into a single parameter in a vba code which calls a sql procedure.

In creating the command to call the procedure I've used is:
      cmd1.Parameters("@clientcode") = "AB3,BM1"
which returns no result.

The section of the sql code which relates to the parameter is:
      where T01.ClientCode in (@clientcode)

Any thoughts?

Create the function below, then change your code from

      where T01.ClientCode in (@clientcode)

to

      where T01.ClientCode in (select value from values2table(@clientcode, ','))
CREATE function [dbo].[values2table]

(

@values varchar(max),

@separator varchar(2)

) returns @res table ([value] varchar(100))

as

begin

declare @value int

declare @commapos int, @lastpos int

set @commapos = 0

select @lastpos = @commapos, @commapos = charindex(@separator, @values, @lastpos+1)

while @commapos > @lastpos

begin

	select @value = substring(@values, @lastpos+1, @commapos-@lastpos-1)

	insert into @res select @value where @value <> ''

	select @lastpos = @commapos, @commapos = charindex(@separator, @values, @lastpos+1)

end

select @value = substring(@values, @lastpos+1, len(@values))

insert into @res select @value where @value <> ''

return

end

GO

you may not assign parameter @clientcode to your cmd1, but may just format  the CommandText,
inserting "AB3,BM1" or whatever you need into the string (formatting the string) that contains the command text
