First, I appreciate the responses to my first post titled " Stored procedures possible in Access97"....<BR><BR>I really hate to sound dumb, but is there another way of accomplishing this task?<BR><BR>Since I am stuck w/ Access97, I&#039m trying for as much speed as possible... strictly stored procedures (wherever possible -- staying away from dynamic parameters). I&#039m also avoiding the Command object (nothing in regards to performance, just more comfortable with the explicit route as I will be using GetString).<BR><BR>I&#039ve seen examples where calling a procedure should be as simple as subsituting the stored procedure (access query) in place of the SQL command. (ie. Dim strSQL / strSQL = "spList")...<BR>
