Is there a way to use GetRows() on this...I am concerned with filtering out the records that are blank but not null:

    i = 0
    ReDim AsgndBibs(0)
    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    sql = "SELECT pr.Bib FROM PartRace pr INNER JOIN RaceData rd ON pr.RaceID = rd.RaceID WHERE rd.EventID = "
    sql = sql & lEventID & " AND pr.Bib IS NOT NULL ORDER BY pr.Bib"
    rs.Open sql, conn, 1, 2
    Do While Not rs.EOF
        If Not rs(0).Value & "" = "" Then
            AsgndBibs(i) = rs(0).Value
            i = i + 1
            ReDim Preserve AsgndBibs(i)
        End If
    Set rs = Nothing

You'd be better to adapt your SQL query to filter out the blanks first, rather than pulling the results and filtering afterwards.

Change you where clause to:
sql = sql & lEventID & " AND (pr.Bib IS NOT NULL AND RTRIM(pr.Bib) = '') ORDER BY pr.Bib"

Open in new window

Then you can simply call GetRows() on the resulting recordset.
