A little stuck here, I have a from in VB6 and I want to show the number of records in a table with todays date

 Set dbs = New ADODB.Connection
 dbs.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\test\backend.mdb;"

numbertoday.Text = dbs.Execute("SELECT tblholdingdata.date, Count(tblholdingdata.message)") _
& "From tblholdingdata" _
& "GROUP BY tblholdingdata.date" _
& "HAVING (((tblholdingdata.date)=Date()));"

I am probably going the wrong way about this, any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Here's one way:

Dim rs As adodb.Recordset
Set rs = New adodb.Recordset
rs.Open "Select tblholdingdata.date from tblholdingdata Where tblholdingdata.date=#" & Date & "#", dbs, adOpenForwardOnly, adLockReadOnly
MsgBox rs.RecordCount
Set rs = Nothing
