Classic ASP:  Display item until End Of File

Hello.  I am working with Classic ASP (Not .NET) with an MS Access database.

I just need to know the syntax of how to only show something while not at End Of File.

Example:  I only want to show the " | " symbol after each dynamic list link EXCEPT after the last one.

I thought it was something like:
<%IF NOT rsRecordset.Field ("Field name").EOF then%>
Show the symbol
<%END IF%>

Does this look right?

Thanks so much,
Shane

its actually from the recordset itself.  

rsRecordset.eof

So, would it be as simple as:

<%IF NOT rsRecordset.EOF then%>
Show symbol
<%END IF%>

...OR, would I need to add quotes or parentheses or something else in the syntax?

eof will only be true once you have moved past the last record.

print - rec 1
rs.movenext
print - rec 2
rs.movenext
print - rec 3
eof = false
rs.movenext
eof = true

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

OK - thank you for your help.  I need a little more, though.  I am using DW MX, becaue I'm not proficient enough not to use it.

Here is the link for the site:  <http://www.clutter2treasure.net/antiques_list.asp>
You will see the list of links in the center with the " | " after the last link.  I would like for that NOT to appear after the last link.

So, here is the segment of code for that loop:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
While ((Repeat1__numRows <> 0) AND (NOT rsAntiqueList.EOF))
%>
                      <a href="antiques_results.asp?<%= MM_keepURL & MM_joinChar(MM_keepURL) & "subcatID=" & rsAntiqueList.Fields.Item("subcatID").Value %>"><%=(rsAntiqueList.Fields.Item("subcatName").Value)%></a>&nbsp;|&nbsp;
                      <%
  Repeat1__index=Repeat1__index+1
  Repeat1__numRows=Repeat1__numRows-1
  rsAntiqueList.MoveNext()

Wend
%>
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What should I do?

Thanks so much,
Shane

You may be able to do this without ASP.  You can use the pseudo-selectors :first-child and :before to denote that you want the pipe missing on the first link and printed on the rest.

a:first-child{
/*normal stylings*/
}
a:before{
content:"|"
}

I'll double check the code later, but that might get you started.
