asp search returns no results from access query

P: n/a
access 2000 query:

here's what i want to do. from an asp page, perform a search on a
table in access. i have used sql code in the asp page itself, but i'd
rather execute a query in access. i have success in running any query
(basic SELECT, SELECT with conditions _other_ than LIKE, etc..) for
some reason, when i execute the query below from the asp page, i get
no results.

the search.asp page just has a text box in a form that submits the
srchBOX field to the results.asp page.

here's the asp code from the results.asp page:

Dim vSearchParam
vSearchParam = Request.QueryString("srchBOX")
Set rsTODO = conn.Execute ("exec sp_SEARCH_TODO" & " '" & vSearchParam
& "'")

even if i replace vSearchParam with an actual string such as "asdf"
(and this does return results from the access query), i get no results
in my results.asp page.

what gives? i must be missing something simple here... i'm not sure if
it's an access or asp issue..

please help!
