[dba-SQLServer] SPs are read-only

I'm amazed at the amount of "going around the bush to get to the barn"
information that you are getting from this list.  So far, the responses are
far more complicated than they need to be.

When I was first starting out, I found an ADO Primer website
(http://authors.aspalliance.com/aspxtreme/ado/index.aspx) that really helped
me understand the basics behind what I was trying to do.

There are also several really good books out there for working with SQL
Server within Access.  My favorite is "Professional SQL Server Development
with Access 2000" by Rick Dobson (ISBN 1861004834).

Filling a combo box or listbox is as simple as creating a stored procedure
or view and putting the name of that stored procedure or view in the row
source property of the control.  It gets little bit more complicated when
you need to pass a parameter through but not as hard as you guys make it

Here is the function I use to fill the work order listbox on my ADP's
startup screen.  I have four different stored procedures based on the sort
the user chose.  I pass in the division code and filtering parameters based
on textboxes the users enter data into.


Public Function GetWOList(intSort As Integer, _
        strDivision As String, strShow As String, _
        strClient As String, strWO As String, _
        strProj As String)
    On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
    Dim strSproc As String
    Select Case intSort
        Case Is = 1 'Work Order Number
            strSproc = "ap_WOS_StartupWONum"
        Case Is = 2 'Project Name
            strSproc = "ap_WOS_StartupWOProj"
        Case Is = 3 'Show Name
            strSproc = "ap_WOS_StartupWOShow"
        Case Is = 4 'Client Name
            strSproc = "ap_WOS_StartupWOClient"
    End Select
    Set cmd = New ADODB.Command
    With cmd
        .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
        .CommandText = strSproc
        .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@Division", adVarChar,
adParamInput, 50)
        .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@Status", adBoolean,
adParamInput, 1)
        .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@Show", adVarChar,
adParamInput, 50)
        .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@Client", adVarChar,
adParamInput, 75)
        .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@WO", adVarChar, adParamInput,
        .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@Proj", adVarChar,
adParamInput, 50)
        .ActiveConnection = CurrentProject.Connection
        .Parameters("@Division") = strDivision
        If bolArch = True Then
            .Parameters("@Status") = 1
            .Parameters("@Status") = 0
        End If
        If Len(strShow) > 0 Then .Parameters("@Show") = "%" & strShow & "%"
        If Len(strClient) > 0 Then .Parameters("@Client") = "%" & strClient
& "%"
        If Len(strWO) > 0 Then
            If Len(strWO) = 5 Then
                .Parameters("@WO") = strWO
                .Parameters("@WO") = strWO & "%"
            End If
        End If
        If Len(strProj) > 0 Then .Parameters("@Proj") = "%" & strProj & "%"
        Set Forms!frmStartup!lstWO.Recordset = .Execute
        .ActiveConnection = Nothing
    End With
    Set cmd = Nothing

    Exit Function
    If Err = 3421 Then
        MsgBox "Work Order Number filter can only be 5 characters!",
vbOKOnly, "Filter Too Long"
        Call HandleErrors(Err, "basStartup", "GetWOList")
    End If

End Function

As far as I am aware when you pull back data into an appliication using an
SP it is read only, if you want to pull back data and make it editible then
I have found you have to use a view (do as much filtering as possible here
(well I do anyway)) and then use some code with a select statement to bring
it into an editible recordset.
If anyone knows different about SP's then please tell me as well cause OH
how I would love to have an editible store procedure.

Is there a magic incantation to make my SP editable? My tables are
read/write but a simple SP that pulls the same data (filtered on a couple of
ID fields) is read-only. Any thoughts on why this is?
