Problem with paramertized SQL statement in Dreamweaver cs6

I have a parameterized SQL statement I am using in Dreamweaver.  When I test the record set in dreamweaver it produces the correct outcome.  but when I load to website it gives me a

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Incorrect syntax near '@P1'.

/state_email_send.asp, line 29

Here is the code from dreamweaver:

Dim rsState__MM_ColParam
rsState__MM_ColParam = "10"
If (Request.QueryString("numberofemails")    <> "") Then 
  rsState__MM_ColParam = Request.QueryString("numberofemails")   
End If
Dim rsState__MM_ColParam1
rsState__MM_ColParam1 = "Il"
If (Request.QueryString("state")   <> "") Then 
  rsState__MM_ColParam1 = Request.QueryString("state")  
End If
Dim rsState
Dim rsState_cmd
Dim rsState_numRows

Set rsState_cmd = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Command")
rsState_cmd.ActiveConnection = MM_durgorama_STRING
rsState_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT TOP ? * FROM dbo.state_emails WHERE datesent IS NULL AND state = ?" 
rsState_cmd.Prepared = true
rsState_cmd.Parameters.Append rsState_cmd.CreateParameter("param1", 5, 1, -1, rsState__MM_ColParam) ' adDouble
rsState_cmd.Parameters.Append rsState_cmd.CreateParameter("param2", 200, 1, 255, rsState__MM_ColParam1) ' adVarChar

Set rsState = rsState_cmd.Execute
rsState_numRows = 0

Open in new window

Its got to be something simple.  I am just trying to set the number of records that I want to pull from the TOP statement.  If I remove the parameters and just use standard SQL with request variables it works....

Could it be because you are declaring it as double and not integer?

You cannot use parameters for the TOP clause.

thanks acperkins, I was able to make it work doing the same thing you were.  Just didn't know that parameter wasn't allowed in the TOP section.
