Are there any characters in a record set field that causes GetRows() to record the field or other fields as blanks?

In using GetRows() in an asp/vbscript  page, including a field from a small record set which contains URLs, the GetRows() fails to get one or more of the other fields . Using the query below, the sueBlogWhatsHotParagraph field is blank
The SQL query is
"SELECT  sueBlogWhatsHotSource, sueBlogWhatsHotParagraph, sueBlogWhatsHotUrl FROM tblSueBlogWhatsHot WHERE (sueBlogID = '"&CInt(selectedBlogID)&"') AND (sueBlogWhatsHotEndDate IS NULL OR sueBlogWhatsHotEndDate >= GETDATE()) ORDER BY sueBlogWhatsHotOrder"
The four URL fields are
index.asp?leftButNo=2&selectedTopButID=6&topButNo=3&selectedBlogID=23&selectedBlogMonth=7&selectedBlogYear=2009

I have experimented by including additional fields and the resulting missing fields in the array changes with the position of the URL field in the SQL query.  The URL field does appear in the array again dependent upon its position in the query.
Reloading the GetRows() array by looping through the original record set works.

There used to be a problem with ADO and BLOB data types in that if you listed the BLOB fields first the rest of the columns would be Null.  It does not appear to be your case as you have listed them last.  The other possibility is that you are using an old provider that does not support the new data types.  Perhaps you can temporarily change the data types for the columns listed from varchar(MAX) to varchar(100)
