  • 2. Executing MS-Access Functions via VB6
    Hi, I have written a Query in Access which uses a function that I have written in an Access module: select * from myTable where myFunction([aDatabaseField]) = true This works fine if I run it from Access, but If I try to call this from a VB program: Set command = new ADODB.Command command.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc command.CommandText = "myQuery" rs = command.Execute Then I get an error: 'Undefined function myFunction in Expression' My question is, is it possible to tell VB/Access where to find the function, or is this technique just not possible. IE can I only access the data and not the code modules in my database via VB6? Thanks in anticipation of your help, Regards, ChrisM

    Hi! This code was done with the help of Knowledge Base Article - 240222. It creates the link between two databases, but when I open the database the link table does not contain any data (original table contains data i.e. tblDetail). Can some one help me with this code please. ******************************************************************************* Public Function fn_CreateLink() 'Create Link... Set adoCat = New ADOX.Catalog Set adoCat.ActiveConnection = mMain.cnSetup_db Set adoTbl.ParentCatalog = adoCat adoTbl.Name = "tblDetail_Linked" 'remote database details adoTbl.Properties("Jet OLEDB:Link Datasource") = "E:\zNew\Dababase\db_Data.mdb" adoTbl.Properties("Jet OLEDB:Link Provider String") = "MS Access;Pwd=123" adoTbl.Properties("Jet OLEDB:Remote Table Name") = "tblDetail" adoTbl.Properties("Jet OLEDB:Create Link") = True 'Append the table to the tables collection adoCat.Tables.Append adoTbl Debug.Print "Link Created..." End Function ******************************************************************************* Thanks & Regards, Nalaka.

1.Database Connection Problem. Please Help

Hi all,

I have a process which first pulls one time all application IDs from a 
database and stores them in a table(this process works fine everytime). I 
then loop through the table, one at a time, and use application id to pull 
details info and process it. For example, if I have 500 records in my table, 
then I would have to open database 500 times. Also between processing each 
record, my process sleep 3 seconds.

The problem is that after processing about 100 records, using SqlDataReader, 
my database connection will starts failing. When I traced the error in my 
try catch clause, the exception message just say connection fails to open 
database. I also found that all the subsequent connection also failed to 
open unless I stop my window service and restart it.

Would some one please give me a hand? I've been trying to find a way to pull 
all details for all records at once, instead of one at a time but I have not 
been able to do that.

Thanks in advance for everyone's suggestions



Here is part of my process that pull details of an application base on 
         Dim appReader As SqlDataReader

        appReader = GetDataReader("user_ApplicationDetails", _
                "@appID", appID)

        Do While appReader.Read ' Read applicat

              'process data

     If Not appReader Is Nothing Then appReader.Close()

Here is my function that returns sqldataReader

        Public Function GetDataReader(ByVal sStoredProc As String, ByVal 
sVarName As String, ByVal iInt As Integer) As SqlDataReader

            Dim aCommand As New SqlCommand


                aConnection = OpenConnection(aConnection) ' OpenConnection 
returns sqlconnection

                aCommand.CommandText = sStoredProc
                aCommand.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
                aCommand.Connection = aConnection

                aCommand.Parameters.Add(sVarName, iInt)

            Catch e As Exception
                Throw New Exception(e.Message, e)
                If aConnection.State.Open = True Then
                End If
            End Try

        End Function 

2.Need help with mstsc (RDP, Remote Desktop Connection) with Data Environment Connection String help?

I am New to using data environment, but I need some help. I am using data environment to connect to an 2000 access DB. and I have a data report to show data fromt he DB. I have a vb6 app that connects to the access DB, and the user can specify the path of the database.

I wanted to know How and were to put the code to refesh the connection string in the data environment and if so, data report as well, so when it load, it has the new path to the access DB. This is what I was thinking of using.

dbReportConnection.ConMPM.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source=" & DP & "

I don't know if that is right, I just took a shot at it. Can anybody help.

I also need (if any body can help) to Be able to update while the aplication is running, EX. If a user enters a new cutomer, and I run the report, the cutomer does not show up, but if I exit the app, and reopen it, the customer is there. How can I open and close and update the connection string when I run the reports?
