Default Cannot display/return SQL Query Output from a Vari

I have been having a very difficult time trying to get the output of a sql query that is in a DTS global variable to return, presently to a messagebox.

I created an Execute SQL task with the query I wish to use. The query has been tested in Query Analyzer and works fine and returns the results I am looking for. I set a global variable to the result set. Basically, I wish to display the results as a string or similar in a messagebox.

I have created the Execute SQL task as described in http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en..._task_4gkl.asp .

I have tried to retrieve the results using the example in
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de..._task_6llt.asp but I have been unable to do so.

I also tried the GetString method of the recordset without success.

I also tried the using the “Storing the resultset in a flat file” example from http://dotnetbips.com/displayarticle.aspx?id=228 and I was unable to write the recordset to a file.

What is the proper way to display a variable of type dispatch? I feel like I am going about this the wrong way.

I welcome suggestions and comments on how to achieve the goal of displaying the query results.

Everything is fine with the code listed below. I am going to use this
instead of the DTS execute sql task.

Option Explicit

Function Main()

dim cnn
dim rs
dim intLoop
dim strText

set cnn=createobject("ADODB.Connec­tion")

cnn.Open "Provider=sqloledb;" & _
           "Data Source=SERVER;" & _
           "Initial Catalog=msdb;" & _
           "Integrated Security=SSPI"

set rs=cnn.execute("SQL QUERY")

If rs.BOF then

msgbox "No Records Found"


do until rs.EOF

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

strText = strText & rs.fields(intLoop).value & " " & vbCrLf




msgbox strText

end if

set rs = nothing

Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success

End Function
