ADO/ASP/Isnull issue.

P: n/a
Hello,

Problem: Im using isnull() in vbscript to determine if a field returned
from a ado object call is in fact null. The problem is when I use
isnull in anything other than a response.write() I get the following
error:
Error Type:
ADODB.Recordset (0x800A0CC1)
Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the
requested name or ordinal.
/mypage.asp, line 1514

I have double checked spelling, the field Im looking at does infact
exist.

NOTE: I'll use # to denote comments edited into code and output not
actually part of code or output
CODE:
Response.Write("<BRruntime sql is null?" &
isnull(rs.Fields("runtime_sql")))
if not isnull(rs.Fields("runtime_sql")) then
report_fields = report_fields & concat & rs.Fields("runtime_sql")
end if
#debug output.
runtime sql is null?True
#end debug output.
If I remove the not it does not error. if I add an else it does.
After extensive testing Ive determined that if the condidtion in the if
statement is false the page errs.


NOTE2: isnull is used throughout this asp app and this is the first
time it has thrown an err.
Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Jimm

If you post the full code that is erroring, it might give a clue as to what
is going wrong. The error message does suggest a typo somewhere though, as
it's the expected response when a column is requested that does not exist in
the recordset.
