Two Select Statements in an ActiveX DTS script

Hi Experts,

I use the following code in an activeX script following a select statement

          if rs.bof or rs.eof then noOrders = true
          if noOrders then
          Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
          End if
          if not noOrders then.... etc

My problem is that I'd like to add in another select statement further down the script and i don't want to have the message that it's been a success if the first query returns has an eof/bof....

Anyone think of a way around it?

Many Thanks

Just take the IF noOrders then .. end if out
 
         if rs.bof or rs.eof then noOrders = true
         if not noOrders then.... etc

You can check your noOrders value at any time to set the return value
          if noOrders then
          Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
          End if

thanks Jay yes - if i get an eof on the first select I want it to skip to the next select statement rather than returning a DTSTaskExecResult_Success
