I am using the following code toread the contents of an online table.
I have a table of the same structure in my Access database and want to add records
with an ID that isn't already there.
Should I loop through the recordset as in the code section below
or is there a quicker way to do something similar to the following code:
Sub Append_Extra_From_People1_To_People2()

    Dim S As String
    S = "Insert Into People2"
    S = S & " Select * From People1"
    S = S & " Where People1.[Operator COY] Not In (Select [Operator COY] From People2)"

    DoCmd.RunSQL S

End Sub
Dim con As ADODB.Connection
Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
Dim cmd As ADODB.Command

Sub ConnectToSQLServer()

    On Error GoTo EH

    Set con = New ADODB.Connection
    con.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=,1444;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Initial Catalog=lesedi_hr;User ID=Graham;Password=maharg1234;"

    Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
    rst.Open "SELECT * FROM Table1", con

    Do While Not rst.EOF
        MsgBox rst.Fields("Col1").Value
    Set rst = Nothing
    Set con = Nothing

Exit Sub

    MsgBox Err.Description
End Sub
