Creating a Recordset object in a function.


I am tring to create a recordset object to be used on other pages.  Everythng in the code works until i get to:

rsEmailList.CursorLocation = ADODB.CursorLocationEnum.adUseClient

Then I get and error that says "Object reference not set to an instance of an object".  I am not sure how to set the object when I am creating this type of function.


    Public Function rsEmailList() As ADODB.Recordset
        Dim cmdEmailList As New ADODB.Command
        cmdEmailList.CommandText = "selLAStageTixAddress"
        cmdEmailList.CommandType = ADODB.CommandTypeEnum.adCmdStoredProc
        cmdEmailList.ActiveConnection = objConn
        rsEmailList.CursorLocation = ADODB.CursorLocationEnum.adUseClient
        rsEmailList.LockType = ADODB.LockTypeEnum.adLockReadOnly
        rsEmailList = cmdEmailList.Execute
    End Function


Thank you.
