I need to run a store procedure or SQL job from within excel.
I have a storeprocedure which dies some extensive data manipulation and creates a summarized table.
I then use this table to run queries with excel. (No problem ith this.
I'd like to be able to run the stored procedure in vbas priot to doing my query refresh.
I've looked on varios discusions in ~EE and have tried a few.
The last one suggested putting my sp in a job and then running the job.
I'm obviously doing something wrong but can someone please help
Here's my vba code to run the SQL job
Dim c As ADODB.Connection
Set c = New ADODB.Connection
'c.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;User ID=sa;Initial Catalog=EB_Production;Data Source=EBDBSQL\EBSQL;PWD=3ntri3$$"
c.Open "DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=EBDBSQL\EBSQL;UID=sa;PWD=3ntri3$$;APP=Microsoft Office 2003;WSID=EBDBSQL;DATABASE=EB_Production"
c.Execute "exec msdb.dbo.sp_start_job @job_name = 'Packing_Invoicing' "
Set c = Nothing
also here's an example connection string from one of the queries. Don't know if that's relevant
DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=EBDBSQL\EBSQL;UID=sa;APP=Microsoft Office 2003;WSID=EBDBSQL;DATABASE=EB_Production
