Hi,

I suppose you have an ADO connection

then pls try

.Execute

Sub test()

Dim objCommand As ADODB.Command
Set objCommand = New ADODB.Command

With objCommand
.ActiveConnection = ADOConn
.CommandText = "UPDATE Clients " & _
"set ClientName = 'John' " & _
"Where ClientID = 10"
.Execute
End With

End Sub

Open in new window


Regards

Thanks, but I should been more clear.  I want to create the query in Query Design and apply the completed query by name.    I was hoping to do something like this:

  Dim dbe As PrivDBEngine, wrk As Workspace, db1 As Database, db2 As Database
   Dim, OutputFilePath As String

   OutputFilePath = "C:\Celebrant Assist V3\CelaRept.accdb"
   Set dbe = New PrivDBEngine
   Set wrk = dbe.Workspaces(0)
   Set db2 = wrk.OpenDatabase(OutputFilePath, False, False)

  '  Run a named querythat updates a table in db2

You can continue:

Dim qdy As QueryDef

Set qdy = db2.CreateQueryDef("NameOfQuery")
qdy.SQL = strSQL ' Your action SQL code.
qdy.Execute

If you like, you can create a temp query this way:

Set qdy = db2.CreateQueryDef("")
