can't pass NULL value

When trying to test for NULL values, I am not able to pass the code below on line 10 when the value is NULL.  Is there something wrong with my syntax on that line?

When debugging, I find that the value is indeed NULL, but it won't pass onto line 11



MonthlyID = 5
ActivityID = 2

If rec.State = adStateOpen Then
        
       rec.MoveFirst
       i = 1
        Do While Not rec.EOF
        
                If rec!ProgressSetback Is Nothing Then
                    If MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 9) <> "" Then
                    sStringtoEx = "insert into tblOrgMonthlyProgressSetbacks (PIID, monthlyid, agencyid, progresssetback) values " & _
                    "(" & MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 4) & "," & MonthlyID & "," & AgencyID & ",'" & MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 9) & "')"
                    Set rec = conn.Execute(sStringtoEx)
                    End If
                End If
                
                If rec!ProgressSetback <> "" Then
                    If MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 9) <> "" Then
                    sStringtoEx = "update tblOrgMonthlyProgressSetbacks set progresssetback= '" & MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 9) & "' where PIID = " & MSFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(i, 4) & ""
                    Set rec = conn.Execute(sStringtoEx)
                    End If
                End If
                i = i + 1
                rec.MoveNext
   
        Loop
End If

Or maybe

If rec!ProgressSetback & " " = " " Then
0

As has been implied, NULL and NOTHING are not the same, although it is quite a common error to assume that they are.

Nothing means that the variable does not have an object assigned to it,

Null means that it does have an object assigned to it, but the objects value is NULL
