I have a web page which has a function. The function queries a database and returns back a recordset.

The problem is I can't do the usual things that I can do with a regular recordset (like, MoveNext). Below's the code.


Dim objResource
Dim rsResources

rsResources = ShowResource()

Do While Not rsResouces.EOF

      Response.Write rsResources("resource_id") & ": " & rsResources("resource_name") & "<BR>"

      rsResources.MoveNext

      Response.Write rsResources("resource_name") & "<BR>"

Loop

Function ShowResource()

      Dim rsResource
      Dim conResource
      Dim strSQL
      Dim objCalendar
      Dim strDSN

      Set conResource = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

      strDSN = "driver=sql server;database=db1;server=server1;uid=sa;pwd=password"

      conResource.Open strDSN
      
      strSQL = "sp_ShowRecords"

      Set rsResource = conResource.Execute(strSQL)

      Set ShowResource = rsResource
      
End Function

change your
  Function ShowResource()
to
  Function ShowResource() as Recordset


if that doesn't do it for you, then you must use this:
 
  Function ShowResource(ByRef myRS)
    ...
    Set myRS = conResource.Execute(strSQL)
  End Function

and then call the function like this:

  ShowResource rsResource



btw...this question should be asked in the ASP section, not the VB section of EE
