Unable to connect sql to ms access....

Hi Experts
(this is a follow up question to: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Microsoft/Development/MS_Access/Q_28232414.html)

And once again sorry/apologies if this is not the correct method of posting questions on the EE board. Sorry!!! if i have borken any rules.

I am having a nightmare trying to establish a connection to ms access via sql on a odbcad32.exc...

i have tried using the following vba to change the connection string and no luck for two days...

Public Function GetQueryLinks()
On Error GoTo Err_GetQueryLinks

    'Dim StrConn As ADODB.Connection
    'Set StrConn = New ADODB.Connection
    Dim qdf As DAO.QueryDef
    Dim StrConn As String
     StrConn = "ODBC;Driver=(Apples_Oranges);SERVER=SQAAPB3SBCA65130.global.Hire.com;Database=Apples_Oranges);;Port=12351;"
     For Each qdf In CurrentDb.QueryDefs
        If qdf.Connect <> "" Then

            qdf.Connect = StrConn
            Debug.Print qdf.Connect

        End If

    Set qdf = Nothing
    Exit Function

    MsgBox Err.Number & " (" & Err.Description & ") in procedure GetQueryLinks of Module basTableLinks"
    Resume Exit_GetQueryLinks

End Function
