Syntax error in ASP code (classic)

I have the following code to display an area if the recordset  is empty and does not or returns a value :            

<%
If (Receipts.Fields.Item("Object_id").Value = "" or IsNull(Receipts.Fields.Item("Object_id").Value)) Then
%>

DISPLAY AREA

<% End If %>

Works great. What would the syntax be for the opposite, if it doesn't exist ?

if you want to check if a recordset is empty, use:

<%
If Receipts.BOF and Receipts.EOF then
%>

if you want to check if the recordset is NOT empty, use:

<%
If not Receipts.BOF and not Receipts.EOF then
%>

simple enough, try this code:

<%
If (Receipts.Fields.Item("Object_id").Value <> "" and not IsNull(Receipts.Fields.Item("Object_id").Value)) Then
%>

this checks to make sure the field Object_id contains a value
