I am using vba in excel to download data directly from as400. The code is:

Sub ImportFromAS400()

Dim cn As ADODB.Connection, rs As ADODB.Recordset, intColIndex As Integer
Set TargetRange = TargetRange.Cells(1, 1)
' open the database
Set cn = New ADODB.Connection

cn.Open "Provider=IBMDA400;Data source=TEAUST;User Id=;Password=;");

Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
With rs
.Open "SELECT BPCSUS.ID,BPCSUS.SEQ, BPCSUS.IPROD, BPCSUS.IDESC FROM TEAUST.BPCSUS.MBM", cn, , , adCmdText

For intColIndex = 0 To rs.Fields.Count - 1

TargetRange.Offset(0, intColIndex).Value = rs.Fields(intColIndex).Name

Next


TargetRange.Offset(1, 0).CopyFromRecordset rs

End With
rs.Close
Set rs = Nothing
cn.Close
Set cn = Nothing
End Sub


The problem is that when the cells are downloaded to excel, some cells are left blank. The fields are empty
(When I run msquery or do a link to access the values for the fields are there. I know the sql is correct in my vba code (because i took it of the msquery)).
It retrieves all the available records for some fields only. The field that are empty when exported to excel are BPCSUS.SEQ abd BPCSUS.IDESC.

Does anyone know why?
