SQL Connection query question

I have a SQL Query that is called from a VBScript, something like the following:

Query = "select UserCount from .....
Set Result = objConn.Execute(Query)

It works just fine.  I recently ran into a problem where the query returns no results.  If I do this in ISql I get the same response - no records match the query, so the results window is empty.

How would I go about validating the results?  If I have something like:
wscript.echo Result("UserCount") after a query that returns no results I get an error.
