Hi all, I have a particular API Query that isnt working...

	Set SessionLookup=oConn.Execute("SELECT * FROM site_sessions WHERE session_ID="&Session.SessionID)
	If Not SessionLookup.EOF Then
		Session_ID=SessionLookup("session_ID")
	Else
		Set oXMLHTTPLocIP=CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
		LocIP="http://api.ipify.org/"
		oXMLHTTPLocIP.Open "GET",LocIP,False
		oXMLHTTPLocIP.Send
		If oXMLHTTPLocIP.Status="200" Then
			IP=oXMLHTTPLocIP.responseText
			Set oXMLHTTPLoc=CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP")
			IP=oXMLHTTPLocIP.responseText
			LocAPI="http://ip-api.com/json/"&IP&"?fields=countryCode,city"
			oXMLHTTPLoc.Open "GET",LocAPI,False
			oXMLHTTPLoc.Send
			If oXMLHTTPLoc.Status="200" Then
				GetTextFromUrlLoc=oXMLHTTPLoc.responseText
				CityLoc=Replace(Split(Split(GetTextFromUrlLoc,",")(0),":")(1),"""","")
				CountryLoc=Replace(Replace(Split(Split(GetTextFromUrlLoc,",")(1),":")(1),"""",""),"}","")
			End If
		End If
		oConn.Execute("INSERT INTO site_sessions(session_ID,brand_ID,session_IP,session_geoCity,session_geoCountry,session_timezone,session_date,session_time) VALUES("&Session.SessionID&",'"&SubDomain("brand_ID")&"','"&IP&"','"&CityLoc&"','"&CountryLoc&"','"&Timezone()&"','"&Date()&"','"&Time()&"')")
		Set NewSession=oConn.Execute("SELECT @@IDENTITY AS New_Session_ID")
		Session_ID=Cstr(NewSession("New_Session_ID"))
	End If
