VB6 - Run query from notepad

Hi all

I have this below macro in my vb6 app that runs an SQL quey.  But what i would like to do is to put the SQL directly in a notepad file on my desktop but the macro would pick from there.

How can i do that?

Thanks again for your help

 Dim oconn As New ADODB.Connection
    Dim RS As New ADODB.Recordset
    Dim strSQL As String
    Dim x As Long



    strSQL = "SELECT COUNT (TLR.CARRIER_ID)as Count " & vbCrLf & _
             "FROM " & _
             "TL_RATE TLR, TL_RATE_DETAIL TRD, LANE_RATE_NETWORK LRN " & vbCrLf & _
             "WHERE " & _
             "TLR.CARRIER_ID = TRD.CARRIER_ID (+) " & vbCrLf & _
             "AND TLR.LANE_ID = TRD.LANE_ID (+) " & vbCrLf & _
             "AND TLR.TARIFF_CLASS_ID = TRD.TARIFF_CLASS_ID (+) " & vbCrLf & _
             "AND TLR.EFFECTIVE = TRD.EFFECTIVE (+) " & vbCrLf & _
             "AND TLR.LANE_ID = LRN.ID " & vbCrLf & _
             "AND TLR.CARRIER_ID = '" & carrier_id.Text & "'" & vbCrLf & _
             "AND LRN.FROM_LOW_KEY_VALUE = '" & origin_id.Text & "' " & vbCrLf & _
             "AND LRN.TO_LOW_KEY_VALUE = '" & destination_id.Text & "'" & vbCrLf & _
             "AND TLR.DATE_INVALID > TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(SYSDATE,'YYYYMMDD'), 'YYYYMMDD')-365 " & vbCrLf & _
             "GROUP by TLR.CARRIER_ID, LRN.FROM_LOW_KEY_VALUE,LRN.TO_LOW_KEY_VALUE "
    Set oconn = New ADODB.Connection
    oconn.Open "Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle.1;Data Source=G_ENVIRONMENT;User Id=TMSFUNC;Password=TMSFUNC;"
    RS.CursorType = adOpenStatic
    RS.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    RS.LockType = adLockOptimistic
    RS.Open strSQL, oconn, adCmdText
    Set Form7.MSHFlexGrid_count.DataSource = RS

    RS.Close
    oconn.Close
    Set RS = Nothing
    Set oconn = Nothing

Open in new window

You won't be able to use the exact block as in your code  because it contains elements that need to be interpreted by VB, but if you have reduced the SQL to simple text then this should do it:

Dim oconn As New ADODB.Connection
    Dim RS As New ADODB.Recordset
    Dim strSQL As String
    Dim x As Long
    Dim strText As String
    Dim f As Integer
   
    f = FreeFile
    Open "c:\folder1\mysql.txt" For Input As #f
    Do Until EOF(f)
        Line Input #f, strText
        strSQL = strSQL & strText
    Loop
    Close #f
   
    Set oconn = New ADODB.Connection
    oconn.Open "Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle.1;Data Source=G_ENVIRONMENT;User Id=TMSFUNC;Password=TMSFUNC;"
    RS.CursorType = adOpenStatic
    RS.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    RS.LockType = adLockOptimistic
    RS.Open strSQL, oconn, adCmdText
    Set Form7.MSHFlexGrid_count.DataSource = RS

    RS.Close
    oconn.Close

I tried like this but nothing happen.

Private Sub Label2_Click(Index As Integer)
Dim RS As New ADODB.Recordset
    Dim strSQL As String
    Dim x As Long
    Dim oconn As New ADODB.Connection



    strSQL = "C:\Documents and Settings\Marc\Desktop\SQL_RUN.txt"
    Set oconn = New ADODB.Connection
    oconn.Open "Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle.1;Data Source=xxxx;User Id=xxxx;Password=xxxx;"
    RS.CursorType = adOpenStatic
    RS.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    RS.LockType = adLockOptimistic
    RS.Open strSQL, oconn, adCmdText
    Set Form7.MSHFlexGrid_count.DataSource = RS

    RS.Close
    oconn.Close
    Set RS = Nothing
End Sub

you need to open the file, read it and store it in your strSQL variable. Check http://www.dreamincode.net/forums/topic/66911-open-text-file-and-dump-text-into-textbox/
