I want to run a loop twice. I know it would be more elegant to do all action in one loop but I'm struggling with the syntax and I need the same record set further down the code.  Is the first loop stopping the second?
While  (NOT rsAgents.EOF) 

'Do Action	

rsAgents.MoveNext()

Wend
 

While  (NOT rsAgents.EOF) 

'Do another Action	

rsAgents.MoveNext()

Wend

Hope This Helps :)

If you are struggling with code, feel free to open a question with more code and I'll happily debug and explain it to you in more detail
'Scenario 1:

While  (NOT rsAgents.EOF) 

'Do Action      

rsAgents.MoveNext()

Wend
 

'This will take you back up to the top line of your code

rsAgents.MoveFirst()
 

While  (NOT rsAgents.EOF) 

'Do another Action      

rsAgents.MoveNext()

Wend
 
 

'Scenario 2:

While NOT rsAgents.EOF

   Do Action 1

   Do Action 2

   rsAgents.MoveNext

And just to add a little more - Yes the first loop was stopping the second.  The first loop would loop through all your results to EOF (End Of File or ResultSet) and then the second loop would pick up where the first left off - at the end of your data - and thus wouldn't be able to manipulate the already played with data.

Triple post - I know its naughty - sorry :(

'This will take you back up to the top line of your code
SHOULD BE
'This will take you to the first result in your file/resultset - not the first line of your code.

Too easy!
rsAgents.MoveFirst() did the trick.
Thanks.
