I am trying to open up a recordset based on a stored procedure, but get an ODBC call failed.

Function GetGP(crit_DateStart As Date, crit_DateEnd As Date, crit_Period As String, crit_Salesman As String)
If myErr.ErrorTrapping = True Then
   ' On Error GoTo updateerr
End If
DoCmd.Echo False


Dim qdf As DAO.QueryDef
Dim dbs As DAO.Database
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
Dim sSQL As String
Dim sConnect As String



sConnect = "ODBC;Description=nt80;DRIVER=SQL Server Native Client 11.0;SERVER=NT80\SQLEXPRESS;Trusted_Connection=Yes;APP=Microsoft Office 2013;DATABASE=zABC_v2;"

Set dbs = CurrentDb
'dbs.CreateQueryDef ("tempGPSum")
Set qdf = dbs.QueryDefs("tempGPSum")


   crit_Salesman = "Tom Jones"
   crit_DateStart = #1/1/2014#
   crit_DateEnd = #12/31/2014#
   crit_Period = "Q"
   
        
        'Eventually create code to parse the dates and period into this quarter, this year, this month...
    

  
sSQL = "exec dbo.sp_GP_BySalesman @crit_Salesman = '" & crit_Salesman & "', @crit_DateStart = " & crit_DateStart & ", @crit_DateEnd = " & crit_DateEnd & " '"

qdf.ReturnsRecords = True
qdf.Connect = sConnect


qdf.sql = sSQL


   Debug.Print sSQL

'it fails on the next line.
Set rst = qdf.OpenRecordset(dbOpenSnapshot)
rst.MoveFirst
Debug.Print rst!Salesman
rst.Close
Set rst = Nothing


    

DoCmd.Echo True
Exit Function
updateerr:
    DoCmd.Echo True
    DispError "Get GP", "Get GP"
End Function

Open in new window


I searched around, but there are so many variations on the syntax that i cannot put it together.

The SP should return records. It does?
Also, can you post here the result from Debug.Print sSQL?

ODBC Call Failed generally means you can't connect to the server for some reason. Are you certain your connect string is correct?

Does the user have permission to call the stored procedure?

Make sure you enumerate the errors collection to get all the errors the ODBC driver may be providing:

Yes, connection strings are good.

I had several problems.

First, i was passing all four of the passed variables all the way to the stored procedure, but it only takes 3 parameters.

The crit_Period is to be used to figure out what date range to actually send.

Second, my passed parameters were in the wrong order as compared to the stored procedure.

Third, one my access variable names were not the same as my store procedure parameters.

So, it was  sloppy start.

To debug it, i pasted the debug.print of the sql to passed.  Then i pasted that into studio manager, it was pretty obvious that point what was wrong.

Function GetGP(crit_Salesman As String, crit_DateStart As Date, crit_DateEnd As Date, crit_Period As String) As Currency
If BUS.ErrorTrapping = True Then
   ' On Error GoTo updateerr
End If
DoCmd.Echo False


Dim qdf As DAO.QueryDef
Dim dbs As DAO.Database
Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
Dim sSQL As String
Dim sConnect As String

' bak sConnect = "ODBC;Description=nt80;DRIVER=SQL Server Native Client 11.0;SERVER=NT80\SQLEXPRESS;Trusted_Connection=Yes;APP=Microsoft Office 2013;DATABASE=zABC_v2;"

sConnect = "ODBC;DSN=NT80_v2;Trusted_Connection=Yes;APP=Microsoft Office 2013;DATABASE=zABC_v2;"
            'ODBC;DSN=NT80_v2;Trusted_Connection=Yes;APP=Microsoft Office 2013;DATABASE=zABC_v2
Set dbs = CurrentDb
'dbs.CreateQueryDef ("tempGPSum")
Set qdf = dbs.QueryDefs("tempGPSum")

  ' these are temporary overrides.
   'crit_Salesman = "Tom Jones"
   crit_DateStart = #1/1/2014#
   crit_DateEnd = #12/31/2014#
   crit_Period = "Q"  ' never passed to sql server
   
        
        'Eventually create code to parse the dates and period into this quarter, this year, this month...
    

  
sSQL = "exec dbo.sp_GP_BySalesman @DateStart =  '" & crit_DateStart & "', @DateEnd = '" & crit_DateEnd & "', @Crit_Salesman = '" & crit_Salesman & "'"

qdf.ReturnsRecords = True
qdf.Connect = sConnect


qdf.sql = sSQL

    Debug.Print qdf.Name
    
   Debug.Print sSQL


Set rst = qdf.OpenRecordset(dbOpenSnapshot)
If Not rst.EOF Then

    rst.MoveFirst
        Debug.Print rst!Salesman, rst!sumgp
        GetGP = rst!sumgp
   
End If

     rst.Close
    Set rst = Nothing
    

DoCmd.Echo True
Exit Function
updateerr:
    DoCmd.Echo True
    DispError "Get GP", "Get GP"
End Function

Open in new window


the debug.print now looks like  this:

xec dbo.sp_GP_BySalesman @DateStart =  '1/1/2014', @DateEnd = '12/31/2014', @Crit_Salesman = 'Tom Jones'

I guess i figure this one out, but i will leave it open for a response on how to derive a current quarter or current month from the dates and crit_Period sent.  

For example, GetGP("1/1/2013#, "12/31/2014#, "tom Jones", "Q")

figure what the date range of  the Quarter is that ends in 12/31/2014

Something which may be of a little help in the future.  It's written with ADO, but it's a nice way to check what's being seen for a stored procedure from the Access side.  Note that you'll need to change the connection object.

FWIW

Sub GetSPParameters(strSPName As String)

          ' Return the attributes of the parameters of a stored procedure.
