I'm trying to just pull a single SQL 2005 table, one way, into Excel 2003.

Compile error:
User-defined type not defined

I have references set to both Microsoft ADO Ext. 2.8 for DDL and Security and Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects Recordset 2.8 Library

What am I doint wrong?
The below VBA is in the Workbook Open event  in "ThisWorkbook".  It's a newly created Excel worksheet with nothing but this code in it and the references I mentioned added from "Tools|References".
Private Sub Workbook_Open()
'This was set up using Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects version 2.8 (In Microsoft Visual Basic, select Tools, References)
Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("B2:BZ65535").Clear

Dim cnt As ADODB.Connection
Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
Dim stSQL As String
Dim wbBook As Workbook
Dim wsSheet As Worksheet
Dim rnStart As Range


Const stADO As String = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI; " & _
"Persist Security Info=False; " & _
"Initial Catalog=CustomerComplaints; " & _
"Data Source=BETASERVE"

Set wbBook = ActiveWorkbook
Set wsSheet = wbBook.Worksheets(1)

With wsSheet
Set rnStart = .Range("B2")
End With

stSQL = "SELECT * FROM Complaints ORDER BY Location, DateReceived"

Set cnt = New ADODB.Connection

With cnt
.CursorLocation = adUseClient
.Open stADO
.CommandTimeout = 0
Set rst = .Execute(stSQL)
End With

'Here we add the Recordset to the sheet from A1
rnStart.CopyFromRecordset rst

'Cleaning up.
rst.Close
cnt.Close
Set rst = Nothing
Set cnt = Nothing

End Sub

Open in new window

Instead of referencing this:
Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects Recordset 2.8 Library

Reference this:
Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.8 Library

You are brilliant!  :-)  Thank you.  That did the trick.  I missed that because instead of that option being down in the alphabetical listing with the Microsoft..... stuff it was up near the very top of the list of references.  Just not close enough to the top for me to notice it. ;-)
