ASP Run Loop Twice

webdork asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
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	
While  (NOT rsAgents.EOF) 
'Do another Action

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
'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.
