Hello,

I have a small problem and would be grateful for some help.

     <% If  cint(Recblockblockunblockif_else.Fields.Item("worker_uid").Value) = cint(Session("pt_login_id"))
 AND  cint(Recblockblockunblockif_else.Fields.Item("blocker_id").Value) = cint(RecmostofDuser.Fields.Item("id_usr").Value) Then  %>
          <h1>free and open</h1><% Else %>this user is blocked <% End If %>

The above works  if  Recblockblockunblockif_else is not empty, but when it is empty I get a Either BOF or EOF is True error, what can I do to it to work if there is no record.

regards and thanks for any help

First check whether the recordset is empty or not like this:


<%
If Recblockblockunblockif_else.EOF = false then

If  cint(Recblockblockunblockif_else.Fields.Item("worker_uid").Value) = cint(Session("pt_login_id"))
 AND  cint(Recblockblockunblockif_else.Fields.Item("blocker_id").Value) = cint(RecmostofDuser.Fields.Item("id_usr").Value) Then  %>
          <h1>free and open</h1><% Else %>this user is blocked
<%
End If
else
%>
<b>No record to display</b>
<%
End if
%>

wowa,

ok when the user is blocked this shows "this user is blocked", but when the user is not blocked it shows nothing where as it should show   <h1>the user is not blocked</h1>, I find this so confusing, sorry to be a bother if you have any ideas i would be grateful, I wish I had given more points for this and didnt mean to close it so soon.

I have re asked this question in the forum as I needed to resolve this in a hurry, no offence , and thanks for your help.

hi kenny,

Sorry there is a delay in answering because of the time difference. When you are working, for me it is bed-time.
I think you would have already solved the problem.

My kind advice, first check the results carefully and then accept the answer.

Good Luck
