ASP VBScript SQL SELECT query

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:
=====
<%

OpenDb()
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?

Just tried that... same problem.  No effect.
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"
