Hi Experts,

Simple one for you.

I have the following recorset to return a record count from a dbase table using SQL:



Set RS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
RS.ActiveConnection = MM_ET_STRING
RS.Source = "select count(*) from et_infoPages where pageType='" & trim(pageType) & "' and parameter1='" & trim(country) & "'"
'response.write("<br><br>" & RS.Source & "<br><br>")
RS.CursorType = 0
RS.CursorLocation = 2
RS.LockType = 3
RS.Open()
RS_numRows = 0


*************************code needed here*************************


RS.Close()
set RS = nothing


I need to stuff the resultant recordcount value into a variable. How do I do this?




Thanks,



PJORDANNA

If not RS.eof then
on error resume next
'Write header code here like response.write("Header")

While not RS.EOF

'Write your body here such as response.write(rs.fields("field1"))


rs.movenext()
wend

'write footer information here
end if

alorentz,

The rs.recordcount line is returning a value of -1

The value should be 21 for the parameters I have chosen (as it is when I check in SQL)


any ideas?
