    pass through query for stored procedure wont run

    I have a linked SQL table and I moved it from a sql server that was local to the machine access was running on to a stand alone sql server.



    Since then my stored procedures wont run. The procedure runs if I run in management studio but doesnt when I run it from access. I am using the same system DSN to connect the query to the database that i used to connect to the table.

    I can see the data in the table but not run the stored procedure.

    Is there some special permissions I need to give or something?

    Update, it is clearly a permissions issue because I created a new user DSN and the pass through worked. However, I don't want to have to create a new user DSN for each person that may end up running this query so I need some help getting a system DSN to work.

    Thanks

    I use DSN-less code now but previously used a File DSN stored on the SQL Server. That meant I didn't have to visit each user's computer.

    I didn't want to use file because I used my admin credentials to create the connection and I was afraid it would be unsecure. Yesterday, I did go ahead and use the file dsn and it did work fine. I don't know how secure that is though.

    I also read that using a file dsn is basically using a dsn less connection because that is how it creates it.

    I looked up how to do a dsnless connection and it seemed a bit complex.

    I'm not aware of a security issue with a file DSN, but it wouldn't be the first thing I was ignorant of.

    Only issue I could see is that the password is shown when you open the dsn as a txt file, but normally that isn't the case. However, never use your administrator account to create a dsn. Create a separate login for that application on your database server and a user on the database. Give them the rights they should have (don't forget to include the right to execute procedures). Be very careful with your admin account, don't forget it has full rights on all databases, including the system databases.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
