I had this question after viewing Displaying number of records depdning on table contents - classic asp.

I'm trying to give my users the ability to see how many tasks had a certain status within a user defined timeframe. My code deosn't work and I've given up. Been googling by I'm a complete nuthead when it comes to programming. Any help appreciated.

<!--#include file="db/database_read.inc"-->
<head>
<!--#include file="Include/meta.asp"-->
</head>
<%
    Task = Request.querystring("Task")

  %><form method="get" action="statistics.asp" data-ajax="false">
  <fieldset class="ui-field-contain">
    <label for="Task">Number of tasks recieved</label>
    <select name="Task" id="Task">
      <option value="">Choose</option>
      <option value="7">Last week</option>
      <option value="31">Last month</option>
      <option value="91">3 months</option>
      <option value="182">6 months</option>
      <option value="273">9 months</option>
      <option value="365">12 months</option></select>
  </fieldset>
<input type="submit" data-inline="true" value="Submit" data-ajax="false">
</form><%
Dim objconn,objRSM,strSQL

Set objconn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objconn.Open strConnect


strSQL = "SELECT concat(Status, ' = ' , Count(Status )) as Numrecords FROM Tasks WHERE DateDiff("d",DateR,Date())> '" & Task & "' group by Status order by Status ASC"

	     set objRSM = objconn.Execute(strSQL)
             
do while objRSM.eof = false
    Records = (objRSM("Numrecords"))
   response.write "<br>" & Records & "<br>"
   objRSM.movenext
loop
%>
