The following code connects and runs with no errors, but not getting the expected result

Dim strCon As String
strCon = "Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle}; " & _
"(HOST=shaft)(PORT=1521))" & _
"(CONNECT_DATA=(SID=WM))); uid=ball; pwd=sack;"
Sql = "SELECT * FROM tblMyTable"
Set rs = conn.Execute(Sql)
If rs.RecordCount > 0 Then
 'do something
End If

The value of rs.RecordCount is -1 but there are 11 records in the table. What am I doing wrong here?
