Query a SQL server from VBScript

Is it possible to Query a SQL server from VBScript, get the sql server to return a boolean value to the vbscript and then use an if statement in the VBScript to act upon that returned value?

Certainly...some sample code for you - of course, you'll need to adjust it to your criteria
If GetBoolean Then
  'Execute some code for a true return
Else
  'Execute otherwise
End If
 
Function GetBoolean()
Dim conn : Set conn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
strCnx = "Driver={SQL Server];Server=SQL-Server7;Database=MyDatabase;user id=SomeID;password='password';" 'You can also use trusted connection...
conn.Open strCnx
Dim cmd : Set cmd = CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
Set cmd.ActiveConnection = conn
 
Dim rs : Set rs = CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
rs.Open "Select MyBoolean From Table1 Where ValueData = SomeCriteria", conn
 
If Not rs.EOF Then GetBoolean = True
rs.Close
End Function
