VBscript to rename file based on SQL field value

I have image files uploaded to my server with a consistent naming pattern. They all are named based on their unique MLS listing number (these are pictures of homes from realtors). That unique listing number is also present in the sql table along with other fields of data. Each record in the sql table has another unique field value called record number. I want to write a vbscript to convert those file names from their MLS listing number to their record number.
Obviously, I need to have a fso.moveFile oldFileName, newFileName type structure which I can figure out. I'm not sure how to loop the lookup portion of the script which will look for the pictures matching sql record and return the record number. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Dim objFSO
Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

'Get the folder object associated with the directory
Dim objFolder
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("C:\InetPub\wwwroot")

Response.Write "The files found in " & objFolder.Name & ":<br>"

'Loop through the Files collection
Dim objFile
For Each objFile in objFolder.Files
  for each rec in recordset \\get your recrods from the db here
      if rec("filename") = objFile.Name then
            fso.moveFile objfile.Name, rec("record number")
      end if

  next
Next

'Clean up!
Set objFolder = Nothing
Set objFile = Nothing
Set objFSO = Nothing

thanks but I still having trouble. I'm not sure on the collecting a recordset. This is server side and I'm more experienced with client side. I follow what you have until the "for each rec in recordset\\get your records from the db here". Not sure if it should be a select statement on that line or what. Thanks

Basic Get a Recordset from a stored procedure.
dim cn
Set cn = server.CreateObject("adodb.connection")
cn.Connectionstring = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=DATABASE;Data Source=SERVER"
cn.open
 
dim rs
set rs = server.createobject("adodb.recordset")
 
dim sql
SQL = "storeprocedurename @Parameter=data"
 
SET RS = cn.Exectute(SQL,,1) 'Readonly Forward

Open in new window

  for each rec in recordset \\get your recrods from the db here
      if rec("filename") = objFile.Name then
            fso.moveFile objfile.Name, rec("record number")
      end if
BECOMES
 
SQL = "storeprocedurename @Listing='" & objFile.Name & "'"
SET RS = cn.Exectute(SQL,,1) 'Readonly Forward
if rs.bof = true and rs.eof = true then
  'Listing not found
 Else
             fso.moveFile objfile.Name, rs("recordnumber")
