Recordset filtering

Hey there again,

I was wondering, i have a asp page setup to filter the recordset acording to the URL parameter and the column in the database called sectCode .. eg. when the url parameter reads ?sectCode=web then it filters all the records with "web" in the db's sectCode field. What i want to be able to do is give the records the ability to be in more than one section. So the sectCode filed in the database will read "web, print" and when filtering for web, it will find the records, and when filtering for print it will find the record. Is there a way i can do this?

If you go into the source code and change the SQL by using the AND or OR commands this could help...

Yes i thought there would be a little SQL to do the trick, not sur how to implement that so if you could i would appreciate any help.

Here is the current recordset code for the page:

<%
Dim SectionSlides__MMColParam
SectionSlides__MMColParam = "1"
If (Request.QueryString("SectCode") <> "") Then
  SectionSlides__MMColParam = Request.QueryString("SectCode")
End If
%>
<%
Dim SectionSlides
Dim SectionSlides_numRows

Set SectionSlides = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
SectionSlides.ActiveConnection = MM_portfolioConn_STRING
SectionSlides.Source = "SELECT * FROM SectionSlides WHERE SectCode = '" + Replace(SectionSlides__MMColParam, "'", "''") + "'"
SectionSlides.CursorType = 0
SectionSlides.CursorLocation = 2
SectionSlides.LockType = 1
SectionSlides.Open()

SectionSlides_numRows = 0
%>
<%
Dim Repeat1__numRows
Dim Repeat1__index

Repeat1__numRows = -1
Repeat1__index = 0
SectionSlides_numRows = SectionSlides_numRows + Repeat1__numRows
%>

Would i change the following line?

SectionSlides.Source = "SELECT * FROM SectionSlides WHERE SectCode = '" + Replace(SectionSlides__MMColParam, "'", "''") + "'"

Thanks for the help!
