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

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

making it a variable.
