quering access report from excel vba


New Member
Hi guys, can someone help i am trying to do vba/access link for the first time, and its quite hard!

I am trying to access a report in access (which has a password) called R_UCITS-AIFM_Summary
via an excel VBA, my first issue is normally input two dates, start and end date (normally the same) then press run (in access) but i am trying to do it all through vba excel,

Can anyone kindly shed some light for me?
I keep getting Run time error,Automation error and unspecfied error rolled into one message which is how bad its all going!:eek::eek:

here is my code so far

Sub getdatafromaccess()

Dim DBFullname As String
Dim Connect As String, Source As String
Dim Connection As ADODB.Connection
Dim Recorder As ADODB.Recordset
Dim Col As Integer
Dim pword As String


pword = "ABC"

DBFullname = "Z:\Portfolio Analysis\Exposure Monitoring\PAS_ACCESS.accdb"

Set Connection = New ADODB.Connection
Connect = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;"
Connect = Connect & "Data source=" & DBFullname & ";" & "Jet OLEDB:Database Password" = pword
Connection.Open ConnectionString:=Connect

Set Recordset = New ADODB.Recordset
With Recordset

Source = "Select * from R_UCITS-AIFM_Summary"
.Open Source = Source, Connection, ActiveConnection:=Connection

For co = 0 To Recordset.Fields.Count - 1
Range("A1").Offset(0, Col).Value = Recordset.Fields(Col).Name

Range("A1").Offset(1, 0).CopyFromRecordset Recordset
End With
Set Recordset = Nothing
Set Connection = Nothing

End Sub

On a sheet , put the two dates in 2 cells.
B1=start date, B2=end date

alter the SQL,:

if range("B1").value ="" then
    sSql= "select* from table"
     sSql= "select* from table where [datefld] between #" & range("b1").value & "# and #" &  range("b2").value & "#"
end if
