Hello jlcannon,

YOu should swap the lines around so you define the value of the sql statement before you try to open the recordset!

              sql = "Select * FROM tblData WHERE Category='" & _
     Request("Category") & "'"
              OpRs.open sql,Conn,adopenkeyset,adlockoptimistic
             
Regards,

TimCottee

are you sure the path to your db file is correct? Try this:
<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<!--#include file="includes/adovbs.inc"-->
<!--#include file="includes/ServerFunction.inc"-->
<!--#include file="Tools/userinfo.inc"-->

'Open Database Connection

Conn.Open vConnStr

I ended up having to do this:
dim Cat
Cat = Request("Category")
sql = "SELECT * FROM tblData WHERE Category='" & Cat & "'"

making it a variable.
