Show region if recordset is empty

I am creating a Positions Vacant section of a site using Dreamweaver and asp, and the job records are retrieved from an access database.
I need to have a "No Jobs currently listed" message appear when a certain category of positions pulls no records, rather than a blank page.
I am trying to use the "Show region if recordset is empty" facility in Dreamweaver, but I keep getting the message "Before using this behaviour, please create a recordset", although I believe I have. Why is this? Does it matter where I place the "No Jobs Currently listed" message?

This is my asp code on the page:


                        <%
Dim mySQL, mySQLOrder
myDSN = "DBQ=" & Server.MapPath ("positiondatabase.mdb") & ";Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};"
mySQL = "SELECT * From [JobDetails] Where [JobIndustryID]= "& Request.QueryString("JobIndustryID")
Select Case Request.QueryString("SortField")
   case "JobDateListed"
      mySQLOrder = " ORDER BY [JobDateListed]desc"
   case "JobTitle"
      mySQLOrder = " ORDER BY [JobTitle]"
   case "JobSuburb"
      mySQLOrder = " ORDER BY [JobSuburb]asc"
   case else
      mySQLOrder = " ORDER BY [JobDateListed]desc"
End Select

Set JobDetailsRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
JobDetailsRS.Open mySQL & mySQLOrder, myDSN
%>
        <%
myDSN = "DBQ=" & Server.MapPath ("positiondatabase.mdb") & ";Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};"
mySQL = "SELECT * From [JobIndustry] Where [ID]= "& Request.QueryString("JobIndustryID") & ";"
Set JobIndustryRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
JobIndustryRS.Open mySQL, myDSN
%>

And the fields required to be displayed are placed within the following:

<%Do While Not JobDetailsRS.EOF %>
...........

   <%JobDetailsRS.MoveNext
  Loop%>

not sure how dreamweaver handles it, but in asp, you just need to test for records being present.

       <%
myDSN = "DBQ=" & Server.MapPath ("positiondatabase.mdb") & ";Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};"
mySQL = "SELECT * From [JobIndustry] Where [ID]= "& Request.QueryString("JobIndustryID") & ";"
Set JobIndustryRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
JobIndustryRS.Open mySQL, myDSN
%>

And the fields required to be displayed are placed within the following:

<%
if JobDetailsRS.EOF then
  ' no records found
  response.write "No Jobs currently listed"
else
  Do While Not JobDetailsRS.EOF %>
...........

   <%JobDetailsRS.MoveNext
  Loop
end if
%>
