Public pdffile As ADODB.Stream
Dim database As New ADODB.Connection

Private Sub Command1_Click()
database.ConnectionString = "Provider=sqloledb; Data Source=192.168.2.121\EMMSDE;Initial Catalog=outlookreport; User Id=jsmith; Password=s5993153492;"
database.Open
sql = "SELECT * FROM PDFTABLE"
Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset

rs.Open " select * from pdftable", database, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic
rs.AddNew

Set pdffile = New ADODB.Stream
pdffile.Type = adTypeBinary
