Hi Experts,

I am performing an sql query via vbscript and I cant seem to get the sql variable to show up in the msgbox. Here is my code

dim myconnection
dim myRecordset
dim sql
dim x

Set myconnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
set myRecordset = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset" )
myconnection.Open "DSN=x;UID=y;PWD=z"
sql = "SELECT TOP 1 Orders.OrderNumber,x = Orders.OrderNumber+1 FROM Orders"
 myRecordset.Open sql, myconnection

msgbox x


myconnection.Close

Set myRecordset = Nothing
Set myconnection = Nothing

I want to get the x variable out of the sql query and pass it to a vbscript variable - which I can return to an application.

Thanks In Advance :)
Mike

I tried the statment however I get an error saying that the column Orders.Ordernumber + 1 is not found.

Basically I want the scriptt to take the sql variable that I create( orders.ordernumber + 1) and pass it to the script so I can display it in a msgbox to see if it works

I also tried

sql = "SELECT TOP 1 Orders.OrderNumber as x From Orders"

then created a new variable y

y = x +1
msgbox y

in this case I don't get an invalid error, the message box pops up simply the number 1 when my top record in the database in 1000067...I want it to read 1000068 in the message box. The full formula is:

dim myconnection
dim myRecordset
dim sql
dim str
dim objFS
dim objFile
dim x
dim y
Set myconnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
set myRecordset = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset" )
myconnection.Open "DSN=x;UID=y;PWD=z"
sql = "SELECT TOP 1 Orders.OrderNumber as x FROM Orders"

myRecordset.Open sql, myconnection
y = x + 1
msgbox y


myconnection.Close

Set myRecordset = Nothing
Set myconnection = Nothing
