I need to get the row number that contains a specific value in a sql server recordset via vb6.  This is what I am using but it appears to be generating a value of 1 each time.  Note that what I am trying to get is the place a runner finishes in a race.  Here is what I am using:

    x = 0
    Set rsx = New ADODB.Recordset
    sqlx = "SELECT Row_Number() OVER (ORDER BY FnlScnds) AS IndRsltsID_DETER FROM IndRslts WHERE RacesID = " & iThisRace
    sqlx = sqlx & " AND Fnlscnds > 0 AND Bib = " & iMyBib
    rsx.Open sqlx, conn, 1, 2
    x = rsx(0).Value
    rsx.Close
    Set rsx = Nothing

    GetPlace = x

Open in new window

A brute force approach which would generate the desired value would be:

    x = 0
    Set rsx = New ADODB.Recordset
    sqlx = "SELECT Bib FROM IndRslts WHERE RaceSrvrID = " & iThisRace & " AND FnlScnds > 0 ORDER BY FnlScnds"
    rsx.Open sqlx, conn, 1, 2
    Do While Not rsx.EOF
        x = x + 1
         If rsx(0).Value = iMyBib Then Exit Do
        rsx.MoveNext
    Loop
    rsx.Close
    Set rsx = Nothing

    GetPlace = x

Open in new window

Any help would be much appreciated!
