The attached code properly displays the message box for the first record that matches the criteria, however it then just repeats the messagebox for the same record indefinitely.  I've used a similar setup before, but it was ASP.  This is straight VBS and I must be missing something simple.
	counter = 0
	limit = 5
 
	Dim cConnection
	Set cConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
	
	//setting variables here for connection string, username, password.
 
	cConnection.Open DBConString,DBUser,DBPass
	SQLstmt = "SELECT field1, field2 from Table1 WHERE Field1 IS NULL"
	Set RS = cConnection.Execute(SQLstmt)
	
	while (not RS.EOF) AND (counter < limit)
		msgbox("Field1: " & RS.Fields.Item("field1").value)
		//do other stuff
		counter = counter + 1
		RS.Movenext()
	wend

Looks fine to me, so it must be something with the RS.MoveNext() ?
Maybe just make it RS.MoveNext without the parentheses ?

No, it's apparently because I'm using ADODB.Connection and need to define and use a recordset... though I'm not entirely sure how to get to that point using a DSNless connection.

:facepalm:

In that whole //do other stuff section I had a function that was doing a database insert.  Stupidly, I was using RS for the recordset name.  Changed it to RS2 and now everything is working.
