you can use codes like this

dim db as dao.database, sql as string, rs as dao.recordset, dbPath as string
dbPath="< complete path to the db >"

    set db=opendatabase(dbPath)
   
    sql="select * from table where <criteria string >"

    set rs=db.openrecordset(sql)

   
what are you trying to do ?

     worksheets("sheet1").range("a1").copyfromrecordset rs
