Hello EE,

I am having an issue getting my records out of an table in excel 2010 using ado.

This statement returns 146 records fine:

rst.Open "SELECT [IndexKey], [Details], [Name], [Amount], [Name] FROM [tbl_import] ORDER by [Name]", cnn, adOpenStatic

Open in new window


As soon as I add some criteria, it does not:

rst.Open "SELECT [IndexKey], [Details], [Name], [Amount], [Code] FROM [tbl_import] WHERE ((([Code]) Is Null)) ORDER BY [Name]", cnn, adOpenStatic

Open in new window


Anyone got the solution? Its got me stumped!

it does not ...

a. return anything
b. return what I expect

?

I'm assuming a.

Your criteria is to search for Code IS NULL
Perhaps there aren't any records where that is true" Maybe Code looks empty but isn't?

e.g.
SELECT
      [IndexKey]
    , [Details]
    , [Name]
    , [Amount]
    , {Code}
FROM [tbl_import]
WHERE ({Code} IS NULL OR {Code} = '')
ORDER BY
      [Name];

nb: I had to substitute { } for [ ] around the word "code"

Thanks for your response.

Interesting points you make. I ran a test against the cell and realised that there is a formula inside there which is why its not returning any records.

Thanks for the tip, I am going to have to approach this a different way.
