Can't save value from vb6 to db

The following DateCompleted column does not save.  Is there anything wrong with my syntax?

esql = "select * from tblOrgMonthlyReport where MonthlyID = " & MonthlyID
            rec.CursorLocation = adUseClient
            rec.Open (esql), conn, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
            If rec!DateCompleted Is Nothing Then
            rec!DateCompleted = ServerTime
            End If

yes it does.

And when I put a breakpoint, line 8 is not executed.  There is a null value, so it SHOULD execute, but does not...

If the author can honestly say that it wasn't my suggestion in post ID: 40295827 that he set a breakpoint as he said he did in post ID: 40295833, then I don't have any objection.
