Access VBA SQL select via ADO with parameters

Hi,

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to use parameters within the ADO code.

For instance:


PARAM1 = "ClientName"
PARAM2 = "="
PARAM3 = "'Acme'"



SQL = _
    "SELECT [ClientName] FROM [dbo].[Clients] ORDER BY [ClientName] WHERE PARAM1 PARAM2 PARAM3"
 
Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
Set cmd = New ADODB.Command
 
With cn
    .ConnectionString = ConnString
    .Open
End With
 
With cmd
    .CommandText = SQL
    .ActiveConnection = cn

End With
 
Set rs = cmd.Execute

Try this.
SQL = _
    "SELECT [ClientName] FROM [dbo].[Clients] ORDER BY [ClientName] WHERE [" & PARAM1 & "] " & PARAM2 & " " & PARAM3

I know how to do this by building the string.  I was hoping there was a built-in way to do it with parameters.  I imagine it's possible.

lee_jd,

If you believe this is possible, then what might this look like as a solution...?

I am curious as to how imnorie's syntax could be done via some simpler "built-in way"?

Did you try imnorie approach.  The SQL evaluates to:

SELECT [ClientName] FROM [dbo].[Clients] ORDER BY [ClientName] WHERE [ClientName] = 'Acme'

The reasoning behind my logic is that if I push a query to a SQL server proc via ADO I can add parameters easily.  I was hoping I could parameterise the predicate.  Not to worry if it can't be done.
