I am having problems with an ASP recordset
I am getting data back but it always returns minus the first row in the table

here is the code

btw I am using to populate a drop down box

Dim oConn
  Dim oRS, oRSD
  Dim adOpenKeyset
  Dim adLockOptimistic
  adOpenKeyset = 1
  adLockOptimistic = 3
 
  Set oConn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.connection")
  Set oRS=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
  strSource = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=(local)"
  strSource = strSource & ";User ID=;Password=;InitialCatalog=Project"
  oConn.ConnectionString = strSource
  oConn.Open

sqltext = "SELECT UserID FROM profile " 
  oRS.Open sqltext, oConn

Response.Write "<SELECT name=UserID> "
      Response.Write oRS.getString(,-1,"","<option>","</option>")
      Response.Write "</SELECT>"
