Hi,



My question is simple for EE used to EXCEL VBA
I want to get the data from SQLSERVER in an array instead to display
it in the worksheet
My code works to select the data and display it in the EXCEL worksheet
it is done via this command

 ThisWorkbook.Sheets("my_sheet").Range("D7").CopyFromRecordset rst

Open in new window



Can Someone tell me how to fetch the rst in an array inside the macro VBA please?

Thanks Dave

    Dim cnn As ADODB.Connection

    Dim connectionString As String   Dim rst1 As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim rst2 As ADODB.Recordset

    Dim User_ID As String
    Dim User_PWD As String

    Dim Workstation_ID As String
    Dim Data_Source As String

    User_PWD = "my password" ' "SYGES2014"  
    Initial_Catalog = "DATABASE"  
    Data_Source = "url"  
    Workstation_ID = "url"  '
      
    Set cnn = New ADODB.Connection

    Set rst = cnn.Execute(strSQL)

Hi,


I've tried to code something but it doesn't work.


' I declare the array as Variant
  Dim arrRecordArray As Variant


    Set rst = cnn.Execute(strSQL)
    
 arrRecordArray = rst.GetRows

MsgBox (arrRecordArray(0))

Open in new window



I just would like to do the same as the following working in PHP


    $res_query  = mssql_query ($req);			
		$row_donTot=mssql_num_rows($res_query);	
  	  while($tab=mssql_fetch_array($res_query)){		
  	   $niveau1[$cpt++]=$tab['niveau1']; 		
  	  }		

Open in new window


So if SO could give me the code to fetch

Thanks Dave

The returned array will be two dimensional with fields as 'rows' and records as 'columns' so you have to supply both indices.

Still doesn't work:

Since I am not good at VBA maybe the way to fetch the data in array I did is wrong:




 Dim arrRecordArray As Variant
    Set rst = cnn.Execute(strSQL)
 arrRecordArray = rst.GetRows

MsgBox (arrRecordArray(1)(1))

Open in new window

MsgBox arrRecordArray(1, 1)

Open in new window

is how you specify both indices.
