Confirm Dialog Box

I'm trying to add a confirm dialog box to my asp page.  I've never used this before and I've tried using the following but the asp code runs whether I click yes or no:

<script language="VBScript">
msg = "Yes or No?"
msgTitle = "Question"
If MsgBox(msg, vbYesNo, msgTitle) = vbYes Then
    'if yes was clicked
      <%varSQL = "DELETE FROM tips_TipDetails WHERE intTipID = " & request("ID")
      conn.Execute varSQL%>
      MsgBox "Yes!"    
Else
      MsgBox "No!"
End If
</script>

If I click yes, the yes box apears and the record is deleted.  If I click No, the No box appears and the record is also deleted.

I could be completely on the wrong track here so any ideas on how to do this sort of thing would be appreciated.

Thanks

the problem is that you are mixing the server side code in your client side script.

all server-side script (the codes inside <%...%>) are executed independent of your client-side script, so no matter what condition you set in your client-side script, the server-side script always run.

The way you should do it is use the confirm dialog box to submit the form with the ID, then when the form is submitted to another page (or itself) then delete the record with your server-side script

If MsgBox(msg, vbYesNo, msgTitle) = vbYes Then
    MsgBox "Yes!"
    document.FormName.submit   '<-- submit the form
Else
    MsgBox "No!"
End If
