Showing Item Once in Do WHile Loop

In the following how can I make this loop only display the piarea once.

Meaning piarea is the title and instead of having it display for each title I want the piarea to display once then have the title items underneath it. Example right now if the piarea is listed for
Square twice I see Square listed then the title - then Square agaian then the title. I only want square displayed once then the two titles underneath it:

Do While Not recAll.EOF
srArea = recAll("piarea").Value
strAbstract = recAll("pititle"))
                              
Response.Write "<br>" & strArea
Response.Write "<br>" & strAbstract & "<br><br>"
                                    
                                                            
recAll.moveNext
Loop

This can be used to display once for any repeated columns
dim PrevArea = ""
dim CurrArea = ""
Do While Not recAll.EOF
srArea = recAll("piarea").Value
strAbstract = recAll("pititle"))
CurrArea =  srArea
if(CurrArea <>  PrevArea) then
  Response.Write "<br>" & strArea
else
 Response.Write "<br>&nbsp;
end if
Response.Write "<br>" & strAbstract & "<br><br>"                      
PrevArea = CurrArea
recAll.moveNext
