How to detect then existence of an object (a recordset actually)

Hi there,

  I would like to create a new recordset (RS) upon changes of a particular value (say Val). But before this, there might be another old RS created. So, before I can recreate RS, I need to detect the existence of any open RS, destroy it and create a new one with different values (but using the same object name which is "RS").
  How should I detect the existence of RS? Or perhaps there is any other better option to solve this problem.
  Thank you!

I tried this, but every "RS Is Nothing" returns False.

RS is actually a global constant. It is called with OpenRS() function whenever it's needed and closed with CloseRS() function.

If you want to lose the old RS then:

set RS = nothing

then, you can use the RS without problems.
