RecordCount and Math Operations in ASP

Dear Experts,

I hardcoded a number (Total) to subtract the recordcount from. Now, I want to use a number from a field instead so we can just change the total in the database instead of using a hardcoded number like I am using here...

dim Total
Total = 101              (I NEED TO MAKE 101 READ FROM A FIELD VALUE (rs.QTY) INSTEAD)
Response.Write "" & rs.RecordCount%>
<%Response.Write "" & CStr(Total -  rs.RecordCount)%>       (I TRIED RS.QTY HERE IT DIDNT WORK..)

Thanks Friends~

It sound's like you want Total = rs("QTY").
