Hi Experts,
How could I place the If statement below in the where clause of an SQL query?

WHERE Emp_Id = <%If not rs1.EOF or NOT rs1.BOF Then Response.Write(rs1("Emp_Id")) Else Response.Write (Emp_Id) End If%>

I would appreciate your help.

Without any context...

If not rs1.EOF or NOT rs1.BOF Then Emp_Id = rs1("Emp_Id")

"SELECT
...
WHERE Emp_Id =" & Emp_Id

Any more context you can provide?  I try not to dynamically insert items into the SQL string like that.  

If there is only expected to be a single variable in that recordset, then why not just load the contents of that recordset into an ASP variable and put that in there.  

Perhaps if we could see some more code around this, including how you are getting the recordset data, we could probably optimize this code some more.

I see Gary tossed a comment in there while I was typing my response.  I agree with his code without any context.
