5 seconds delay in classic ASP

Hello guys,

I need an ASP file to perform a 5 seconds delay and read that database, until a field called STATUS equals to 10.

For example:

Do until Status=10
     Select STATUS from database
     status=database result
     5 SECONDS WAIT
loop

I want to put that 5 seconds wait before the database is queried again, so I don't overload the SQL server.

Thanks.

<%
Sub Delay(DelaySeconds)
SecCount = 0
Sec2 = 0
While SecCount < DelaySeconds + 1
Sec1 = Second(Time())
If Sec1 <> Sec2 Then
Sec2 = Second(Time())
SecCount = SecCount + 1
End If
Wend
End Sub
%>

To call the function (sub):


Delay(The delay time)
E.g.

<% Delay(2) %>
0
