I am looking for vba code (connection and binding to the form, etc) to call spThreeCustFields from Access continuous form and display its content.

Create Proc spThreeCustFields
As
Begin
   SELECT [CustomerID]
      ,[CompanyName]
      ,[ContactName]
   FROM [Northwind].[dbo].[Customers]
End

Thank you.

The code below will open a Recordset based on your SP, and then bind "YourForm" to that recordset. "YourForm" would be expected to have controls bound to the Fields in the recordset:

Dim rst As New ADODB.Record
Dim con As New ADODB.Connection

con.CursorLocation = adUseClient
con.Open "connect string"

rst.Open "EXEC spThreeCustFields", con

Forms("YourForm").Recordset = rst

Open in new window

I am getting an error:

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim rst As New ADODB.Record   '<--*****Complie error: User-defined type not defined
    Dim con As New ADODB.Connection
    
    con.CursorLocation = adUseClient
    con.Open "Data Source=.;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=True"
    
    rst.Open "EXEC spThreeCustFields", con
    
    Me.Recordset = rst
End Sub

Open in new window


Also please check my connection string. To make sure, I have a continuous form with three text boxes bound and named as the three fields (CustomerID, CompanyName, and ContactName) included in the proc.

You apparently don't have a reference to the ADO library. As with all other versions of Access, you open the VBA Editor and click Tools - References, then find the ADO library and check the version you want to use (I used 2.7, I believe).

I am getting another error at line 6:

Run-time error '-2147217887(80040e21)':
Multiple-step OLE DB operation generated errors, Check each OLE DB status value, if available. No work was done.

con.Open "Data Source=.;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=True"

also tried:
con.Open ".;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=True"
con.Open "(local);Initial Catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=True"


fyi, I use the following in my c# app and it works fine:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<configuration>
  <connectionStrings>
    <add name="csDatabase"
         connectionString="Data Source=.;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=True"
         providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
  </connectionStrings>
</configuration>

Open in new window

The "multistep" error often means something is misspelled, or you're referring to a table incorrectly.

Can you run the SP directly in SQL Server Management Studio?

The stored procedure is tested before in SSMS and it works. This is what I have used in vs 2010 successfully:

connectionString="Data Source=.;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=True"

but is the following syntax correct for access?

con.Open ".;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=True"

That connection string doesn't look right. You've got to tell Access the servername and such, so something like this perhaps:


Driver={SQL Server};Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;Uid=myUsername;
Pwd=myPassword;

There are many other examples here: http://www.connectionstrings.com/sql-server/
