I'm kind of embarrassed to ask this, but how does one go about adding a field to an ADO recordset?

I populated the recordset with a query against an Oracle database and now i want to add a field to the recordset.  I tried:

rsTest.Fields.Append "FieldName", adBoolean

I get the error:
Argument not optional.

I assume I need to do something with a collection or something?  Thanks

You can only append fields to a Recordset that is not open and has not yet been connected to a data source. A run-time error will occur if the Append method is called on the Fields collection of an open Recordset, or on a Recordset where the ActiveConnection property has been set.
