I have a classic ASP statement that throws the following (via ADO) to SQL Server:

SELECT @@ROWCOUNT AS NoRecords,
SP.SpeakerId,
SP.Title,
SP.FirstName,
SP.LastName,
SP.Letters,
SP.Tags,
SP.SpeakerReference
FROM Speaker SP 
INNER JOIN Client CL ON CL.ClientId = SP.ClientId 
WHERE 
	(
		(
			(SP.Title LIKE '%a%' AND SP.Title <> 'Mr' AND SP.Title <> 'Ms') OR 
			(SP.FirstName LIKE '%a%') OR 
			(SP.LastName LIKE '%a%') OR 
			(SP.Letters LIKE '%a%')
		) AND
		(
			(CL.FirstName LIKE '%fay%') OR 
			(CL.LastName LIKE '%fay%') OR 
			(CL.CompanyName LIKE '%fay%') OR 
			(SP.Biography LIKE '%fay%') OR 
			(CL.Email LIKE '%fay%')
		)
	) 
ORDER BY SP.FirstName, SP.LastName; 

In SQL Server Management Studio I get the Number of records correctly returned as 'NoRecords' in my results.

If I run the same statement via VBScript/ASP/ADO I always get '0'.

Can someone please shed some light on this?
