I'm using Nz function in Access-2000 query without any problem.
But what i want is to use Nz function directly through recordset in Visual Basic. I don't want to use Access Query due to some reasons. I'm using VB-6.0 and ADO. But in this case it's giving me error unrecognized Nz Function. Following is the snippet that i'm using:

dim rs as New ADODB.recordset
rs.open "select Nz(Sum(qty),0) From Tab1 Where Sno = 5",cn,.....

It's giving error in this statement. What could be the problem. Please help......

thanx and regards,
jigyasa

i've got the solution. The code i've written in the question is just a snippet, I can not use these simple Select Queries with check for Null. I need to have something sort of Nz function only. Following Statement can be used in place of Nz function, becoz Nz can not be used from VB. this i got from some other site....

IIf(IsNull(Sum(Qty)), 0, Sum(Qty))

This works fine. thanx for the sincere efforts. i'm closing this question now.
