Here's the setup:
MS Access has a linked table to SQL Server. SQL Server has a password on it. Trying to use Excel VBA to query this linked table in Access, but I can't get the connection string correct. I can connect from Excel to Access, or from Excel to SQL Server, but I can't figure out how to go Excel --> MS Access --> SQL Server. Need help.
Thanks for your time.

Please share the connection strings you are using. There are two separate right? One for Excel -> Access and one for Access -> SQL Server.
Is there any error? Please update your with error messages. Or specify more precisely the problem / what's happening when connecting? Right now it's a bit to vague I think...0 Max Wikström
Ooop. Sorry about that. I only have one connection string (from Excel to Access, with Access already having a linked table to SQL Server established). I'm not sure how to add a second connection string. Basically, when I go to open the linked table in Access, a prompt window pops up that asks for the Login ID and Password for the SQL Server. Here's the code I'm using so far:
Function DatabaseCall2(ByVal sSQL1 As String) As ADODB.Recordset Dim Cn As ADODB.Connection Dim RS as ADODB.RecordSet Dim ConnectionString As String Set Cn = New ADODB.Connection 'DSN=FIDM_Reporting 'DATABASE=fi_analytics_reporting ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;DataSource=FIDM_Reporting;" & _ "User ID=UserNameHere;Password=Passwordhere" Cn.ConnectionString = ConnectionString Cn.Properties("Prompt") = adPromptAlways Cn.Open // Will add code here to execute SQL statement and assign RS, but I haven't gotten past the previous step End function
When I run this code, I get the prompt that asks for Data Source, User Name, Password, Provider String, and Open Mode. I've been Googling this for a few hours, and I'm not sure what to put in for Data Source. Is it the SQL Server DSN? What about Provider String?0 Cory No
Remove (or comment out) the line
Cn.Properties("Prompt") = adPromptAlways
to get rid of the prompt. (cause its the prompting thats your problem right?)0 Max Wikström
Installed SQL Server 2014, and using MS SQL Server Management Studio, if that matters. Very simple question: how do I get the Import-Export function to actually....work. (I believe I should be using the 32-bit version.)
