When I have records in the database this code works fine:
<%If IsNull(rs2("Certified")) or rs2("Certified")="" Then %>No<%else%>Yes<%end if%>
If there are no records I get the error 80020009 message
I'm using classic ASP and the database is MS Access.
Can somebody please help?
Thank you

you have to first test if rs2.eof and rs2.bof then , if both properties return true, there is no record in the recordset. ...

my page identifies the logged in user. If the logged in user's emp_id is present in the database there is no error message, regardless if the Certified field is checked or it's empty. But sometimes my page is visited by users whose emp_id is not in the database. This is when the error 80020009 message appears, and the rest of the page is not displayed.
I wonder if this can be avoided.

that is exactly what I suggested with my first comment ...

<%
If rs2.EOF and rs2.BOF Then 
  %>New<% 
Else If IsNull(rs2("Certified")) or rs2("Certified")="" Then 
  %>No<%
else
  %>Yes<%
 end if 'else from Certified test
end if 'else from eof/bof test
%>
