Hi,
I'm trying to return a record set from a stored procedure on SQL Server7.  The app seems to to timeout and reports the failure at the include file where the line is ...
while (!rs.eof) { reccnt++; rs.movenext(); }
I have tracked it down to being the actual rs.movenext() line but can't find a way around it or why it's falling over.  The stored procedure works fine and returns results when running it asa query through Access in about 10 seconds.  Via asp it just hangs.  Can anyone help me please?
Thanks in advance.

You can get the recordcount by using code like the following:

reccount = rs.recordcount

If it returns a value of -1 then you need to add this line before the recordset is created:
YourConnection.Cursorlocation = 3

If all you want is a count of records from the database then use a SELECT COUNT(*) query.

This is alot faster than using the recordCount property of a the recordset object because you don't need a client-side static or keyset cursor (which are the slowest cursor types) and you only have a single record in your recordset.

In fact, if you're using a stored procedure and all you want to know is a record count then the absolute best performance will come by setting your record count as an output parameter of the stored procedure then using a command object to read the output parameter. That way you don't need a recordset object at all.
