Problem with MovePrevious() in ASP

I am trying to get MovePrevious() to work in an ASP page...  here is the code that I am using...

sqltxt = "select * from customer"
Set Con = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Con.Open "DSN=Pets;UID=;PWD=;DATABASE=Pets"
Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rs.CursorType = adOpenStatic sqltxt, con

... then when I try to go to use MovePrevious(), the page stopps running and says that an "Exception occurred" on the line with the MovePrevious() command (rs.MovePrevious()) to be exact.

Any thoughts?

1 - try checking for BOF before executing the Move Previous:

If objRecordset.BOF = True
End If

2 - rs.CursorType = adOpenStatic was used - I assume you have included the file, if not use the parameter value instead:

objRecordset.Open strSQL, strConnection, 3

Thanks guys.  Unfortunatly, it was my inability to code that was the problem... not any of this stuff.  Since you were both kind enough to look into this, I will split the points.  ThomasDodds, I am going to give you 50 points for answering and e-Diddy, follow this link

and submit an answer for your 50 points.

Thanks again.
