Hey guys

ok i am trying to check a value entered by the user if it exists in the access database or not can you please tell me what is wrong with this code. Because when the user clicks sumit it does nothing.
i mean if it finds a match it should redirect the page to "service.asp" otherwise if it does not find the match it should display a error message.

thanks



dim conn, rs, sql
dim client_phone_number

set conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.open "int213db"

sql = "select * FROM abcTel where client_phone_number='" &request.form("number")&"'"

set rs=server.createobject("ADODB.Recordset")
rs.open sql,conn,adopenstatic



      if rs.recordcount=0 then
            response.write "there are no matches found"
      else
            response.redirect "service.asp"
end if



rs.close
set rs = nothing
conn.close
set conn = nothing

First, does adopenstatic have a value?  I had to include the type library for ADO to recognize the constant.
Is this line in your ASP file?
<!- METADATA TYPE="TypeLib" FILE="C:\Program Files\Common Files\system\ado\msado15.dll" -->
