Hi,
I actually want to connect to Sql server DB, from Excel VBA codes, using these

    strCon = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=CBRHKMA;Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;IMEX=1"";"
    ...
            s = "delete from [ODBC;Description=TEST;DRIVER=SQL Server;" _
            & "SERVER=PC336_W7_HKMA;Trusted_Connection=Yes;" _
            & "DATABASE=CBRHKMA].T41 " _
            & "where [Reporting Date]=convert(datetime,'" & Mid(strLine, pos0, 8) & "',112)"
            ...

Open in new window

When using Jet drivers you need to provide aa valid file as source. You should use a direct ODBC connection without that Jet stuff.

The reason you are getting this error is because of

Data Source=CBRHKMA

Because you haven't got a folder path, it is interpreting this as CBRHKMA.xls in the current directory.

For more information around connecting to SQL Server from Excel, see http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/Q_28509282.html

If you want some straight-forward code, go to http://www.excel-sql-server.com/excel-sql-server-import-export-using-vba.htm and "Show source code" of "SQL Server Data Import to Excel using ADO".

ResolutionTo work around this issue, carefully verify not only the name and spelling of the source table (or tables) named in your query, but the name and spelling of the Excel path and file name supplied in your ADO connection string.

We don't know your exact connection requirements and strings, so no.

Thanks all.
will it be fine, if I have the codes like

    Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
    Set cn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    
    'strCon = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=CBRHKMA;Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=Yes;IMEX=1"";"
    strCon = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=True;Data Source=PC336_W7_HKMA;" & _
                              "InitialCatalog=CBRHKMA;"
    
    cn.Open strCon
    ...
            s = "delete from T41 " _
            & "where [Reporting Date]='" & date_part & "'"
            
            cn.Execute s
            ...

Open in new window


supposing that there is no syntax error above, and PC336_W7_HKMA is server name, and CBRHKMA is schema name?

... and you are on the same domain (because of Trusted Connection / Integrated Security) - yes.
