Add 1 to a numeric field in MS SQL Server

I'm trying too add the number 1 to a numeric field in MS SQL Server with asp.

Like this:

<!--#include file="../sqlcon/db.asp" -->
<%
      newID = Request("newBlogID")

      strSQL="Select * From blog where blogID="+newID+""
      Set objRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
      objRS.Open strSQL, objCON, 3, 3
      
      IF NOT objRS.EOF THEN
      
      objRS("blogRead") = objRS("blogRead") + 1

      objRS.update
      objRS.Close

      ELSE
      
      objRS.Close
      objCON.close
      Set objCON = Nothing      

      END IF      
      
%>

Why not just change your sql code to

"Update blog wet blogID = blogID + 1 Where blogID = "+newID+""

If it exists, it gets updated.

What error are you receiving? And what is the structure of table blog.

I believe you need to open the recordset using adOpenKeyset instead of adOpenStatic - try this:

newID = Request("newBlogID")

      strSQL="Select * From blog where blogID="+newID+""
      Set objRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
      objRS.Open strSQL, objCON, 1, 3
     
      IF NOT objRS.EOF THEN
     
      objRS("blogRead") = CLng(objRS("blogRead")) + 1

      objRS.update
      end if
     
      objRS.Close
      objCON.close
      Set objCON = Nothing

Both don't work

blogID datatype  =  int

blogRead = numeric

ASP syntax?

strSQL="Select * From blog where blogID=" & newID

OR

strSQL="Update blog set blogRead = blogRead + 1 Where blogID = " & newID

if using xDJR1875/angelIII suggestion.

I use flash as front end so you can't see any error messages.

This used to work some time ago:

objRS("blogRead") = objRS("blogRead")+1

but not any more

This works:

objRS("blogRead") = 2

But I need to add 1 each time someone clicks the blogg post

this ass-u-me's that you are opening objCON in "../sqlcon/db.asp"

Hei kevp 75, your solution work too, so I'm going with that one, is it not wise to use Recordset so much?
