Using MS Access, I am trying to pass a parameter to a SQL Server stored procedure by utilizing a pass-through query.  I found information from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/131534

I am receiving a type mismatch error on line" Set MyRS = MyQry.OpenRecordset()
This is what I am entering in the Immediate window: ?ParamSPT2("500")

Can you help me resolve this?
Your help is appreciated.

Here is the code:  

  Function ParamSPT2(MyParam As String)

        Dim MyDb As Database, MyQry As QueryDef, MyRS As Recordset
         Set MyDb = CurrentDb()
         Set MyQry = MyDb.CreateQueryDef("")

         ' Type a connect string using the appropriate values for your
         ' server.
        MyQry.connect = "ODBC;DSN=EPM_DEV;Description=EPM_Development;UID=abc123;Trusted_Connection=Yes;DATABASE=P Import"
         ' Set the SQL property and concatenate the variables.
         MyQry.SQL = "sp_server_info " & MyParam

         MyQry.ReturnsRecords = True
         Set MyRS = MyQry.OpenRecordset()
         MyRS.MoveFirst

         Debug.Print MyRS!attribute_id, MyRS!attribute_name, MyRS!attribute_value

         MyQry.Close
         MyRS.Close
         MyDb.Close

what if you try ParamSPT2("'500'")?

Also, is there only 1 parameter for sp_server_info? Including optionals, etc.
