booking a codeshare leg for VFF SCs

I have a question about code share arrangements, and how they may be used in order to get Velocity SCs… or not.

I want to fly from Stockholm to Reykjavik and back to Copenhagen. The airports are served by several airlines but none that are Velocity partners.

However, SAS flies between them, and they are a codeshare partner with SQ. Of course when you book on SQ you can enter your VFF number into their booking system and get SCs. On the SQ website, there’s no way to book between these destinations.
I can book Sydney – Reykjavik and the SQ website will add the codeshare leg Stockholm – Reykjavik with SAS to the booking (meaning SCs for the whole distance), but I can’t book that leg alone.

Is there any way to do this? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?

Thanks
