I haven't dealt with Excel but in Access its quite simple.. just create a Passthrough query...paste the SQL and use this query as recordsource for your form.

A button ...whatever whatever the client wants
Private Sub SQLRecordsource_Click()

me.recordsource = "TheName Of the Passthrough"

End Sub

Hi Jhon,

Sorry if you don't mine could you please advise with steps, if possible create file with coding and shared with me, i have tired but don't know where to select and create a forms,

In Excel VBA it will be in insert but in Access i don't know sorry
John TsioumprisSoftware & Systems EngineerCommented:
Well lets take it from the start
Create an Access database
Create a DSN pointing to your SQL (Administrative Tools -->Data Sources (Be carefull if you don't have the 32bit mark then you need to create a shortcut from SysWOW64 to it "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe")
Hit the Ribbon Create Tab -->Query Design...close the Table selection....hit Passtrhough...paste your SQL --> Propertiy Sheet (should be open to the right) -->select the DSN you have created...(ODBC Connection Str)
Run the passthrough.
So far so good
Ribbon -->Create -->Form Wizard --> Select the Passtrough --> select all the fields --> next -->Tabular ---Name it and finish
Put a button on the form somewhere on the header or footer
Go to form's properties -->Data--> delete  the should point to your query.
Paste the code i wrote
Reopen the form...hit the button --> Presto...
