ASP VBScript
MS Access

Hello, all.

I have, what I thought was, a simple SELECT statement that works just fine inside of MS Access; however, it is not working when I paste it into my ASP script.

Here is the statement inside Access:
select * from cp_parts where cp_image is not null and cp_image <>""""

Here it is inside my ASP script/connection area:

Set objRs=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")

strsql="select * from cp_parts where cp_image is not null and cp_image <>"""" "
objRs.Open strsql, objConn, 0, 1, 1

I simply pasted it inside the quotes and it give me a message that it is "... expecting 1 or more parameters...".

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

there looks to be an extra space in the sql, was that just a typo?

strsql="select * from cp_parts where cp_image is not null and cp_image <>"""" "

No, there is just a single space there.

Here is the actual message I get when I run the page:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e10'

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Too few parameters. Expected 1.

/pmcct2/copyimages.asp, line 11

Line 11 is this line:  objRs.Open strsql, objConn, 0, 1, 1

It works fine if I just leave it as:  select * from cp_parts where cp_image is not null

... but... there are other fields that are blank, but considered "empty", I guess.  (Something to do with Access)... thus the "AND" portion of it.

Like I said - it runs fine inside of Access.
Doesn't seem to be translating outside of Access.

did you try putting brackets around the field names?

Did you try this?

strsql="select * from cp_parts where cp_image is not null and cp_image <>'' "

Hi, Sharath.

Bummer - no go, either.

I have no idea what the deal could be.

let's try another approach, as what you have looks like it should work...

try this:

strsql="select * from cp_parts where cp_image is not null and Len( [cp_image] & """" ) = 0"

strsql="select * from cp_parts where (cp_image is not null) and (cp_image <>'') "
