how about a simple counter like this:

dim i
do while not mRS.EOF
   i = i + 1
  if i > 5 then
     exit do
  else
    response.write mRS.fields(yourdata)
loop

add at the end "limit 5":
mySQLo="SELECT id,time,alert FROM TBV where time > DATE_ADD(LOCALTIME(),INTERVAL -2 DAY) ORDER BY time DESC limit 5"

Of course, with mine you might still want to use your loop until EOF construct in case you get back less than 5 records.

Rewrite the query to limit to 5 results:

mySQLo="SELECT id,time,alert FROM TBV where time > DATE_ADD(LOCALTIME(),INTERVAL -2 DAY) ORDER BY time DESC LIMIT 5"

Looks like someone beat mean to it:

mySQLo="SELECT id,time,alert FROM TBV where time > DATE_ADD(LOCALTIME(),INTERVAL -2 DAY) ORDER BY time DESC LIMIT 0, 5"
