Calling a sql 2008 stored procedure from Ms Access 2010

The code below stops at the execute, it says it cannot find the sp, (suggests wrong spleelling.. but it is not..) it runs fine in SQL Server Management
There is an System DSN ODBC in place(Both 32 and 64 bit). Running Win 8.1 64 bit, with MS Office - MS Access 2010 on 32 bit (long story)

This is the first time I have used sp's from MS Access so might well be a rookie mistake. Any steer in the right direction most welcome..
Private Sub cmdProc_Click()
    

    Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim cmd As ADODB.Command
    Dim stProcName As String    'Stored Procedure name
    Dim cnt As ADODB.Connection
    'Declare variables for Stored Procedure
    Dim myVariable As Variant
    Dim myReturn As String
    
    'Set ADODB requirements
   
    Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
    Set cmd = New ADODB.Command
    
    ' Defines the stored procedure commands
    stProcName = "Staff_Login"                'Define name of Stored Procedure to execute."
    cmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc           'Define the ADODB command
    cmd.ActiveConnection = CurrentProject.Connection              'Set the command connection string
    cmd.CommandText = stProcName                'Define Stored Procedure to run
    
    'Execute stored procedure and return to a recordset
    Set rst = cmd.Execute()
    'myReturn = rst.Fields("procedure_name").Value
    myReturn = rst.Fields("StaffID").Value
    
    'Call Sub-Routine_That_Uses_The_Returned_Data
    MsgBox (myReturn)
    
    'Close database connection and clean up
    If CBool(rst.State And adStateOpen) = True Then rst.Close
    Set rst = Nothing
    
    If CBool(cnt.State And adStateOpen) = True Then cnt.Close
    Set cnt = Nothing

End Sub

I just noticed that there's a video tutorial on Executing a SQL Server Function from Within Access that may help you.

Are you sure you are in the right database? Did you try to execute some simple query?

You may try to fully qualify the SP:

"[databaseName].[dbo].[Staff_Login]"  (suppose dbo schema is used)

Also be sure that you have permissions for the SP and all the tables and such involved in that SP.

Hi, Video helped a bit as it confirmed the apprach is correct. Have verified the connection is good with simple query just before 'Execute'.  Fully qualifing sp makes no diffrence, I have full rights as Group Admin.
Is this just a syntax issue??

Try to execute the SP as a standard command:
    'cmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc   'default = Text   
cmd.ActiveConnection = CurrentProject.Connection       
cmd.CommandText = "EXEC " + stProcName    

Open in new window

If you are in the right database and if you have all access rights then the SP name is not correct.
BTW, does the SP have some parameters?

You could also test your code on some system SP, e.g.  sp_who
