Hi

I use the connection string in my code below to manipulate an online SQL database from Excel
I want to include a text box or other control that stays green while the databse can be connected to and turns red when it can't be connected to. What sort of VBA code would I use
to do this
Public Sub oAppend(ByVal oDate As Date, ByVal oText As String, ByVal oNumber As Single)
 
    Dim oSQL As String
    
    On Error GoTo EH
    
    Set con = New ADODB.Connection
    
    con.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=196.11.247,1884;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Initial Catalog=test;User ID=llllk3;Password=4lllgg;"

    Set cmd = New ADODB.Command

Open in new window

try using a timer object and that timerobject should check for connection status. if the connection state is 1 then you can make it as green and if the state is 0 then make it as red.
