Run SQL proc from MS Access (my favourite way)

This is my new favourite way to call SQL procedure using VBA (in my case, from MS Access). You will note the use of the ReturnMsg parameter – I get my text for success, info or errors directly from the procedure. For an example, see the previous post on this blog.

Screen.MousePointer = 11
Dim cn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim cmd As New ADODB.Command
cn.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=MyDBName;Data Source=MyServerName"

cmd.ActiveConnection = cn
cmd.CommandText = "MySchema.MyProcName"
cmd.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
cmd.Parameters.Append cmd.CreateParameter("@queryDateParam", adDate, adParamInput, , cboQueryDate.Value) 'example input parameter
cmd.Parameters.Append cmd.CreateParameter("@ReturnMsg", adVarChar, adParamOutput, 500) 'example output parameter (see previous post for use example)
cmd.CommandTimeout = 0
MsgBox cmd.Parameters("@ReturnMsg").Value
Screen.MousePointer = 0
