Your problem is probably because of order Id value being blank in the querystring...

Try printing out OrderID variable before you use it in SQL..

Also, alternatively to nail the issue, you can hard-code the OrderId in SQL and see if it works...

But, my guess is you are probably missing orderId value in SQL...also try printing SQL before firing it to database engine..

Hope this helps you to get to issue.

Vipin is quite likely right, but in the end, this is a common problem with a simple solution: print out your query (response.write SQLCMD) and LOOK AT IT! When you look at the final query there is a 90% chance you will see the problem. My first guess: too many quote marks. Numerical fields should not be within single quote marks in a SQL query. "...WHERE customerID = '1234'" is almost definitely wrong (this is in the second query, but it illustrates the point). The line 12 ends with 2 quote marks for some reason. I can't tell why. It is fine to say

  1. SQLCmd = "Select CustomerID, LogTime, Description, ShippingAddress, SCity, SZipCode, SState, BillingAddress, BCity, BZipCode, BState, OrderID FROM Orders WHERE OrderID = " & OrderID
of course, if vipin is correct and orderID is blank, then if you printed out the query, you would see

  1. Select CustomerID, LogTime, Description, ShippingAddress, SCity, SZipCode, SState, BillingAddress, BCity, BZipCode, BState, OrderID FROM Orders WHERE OrderID = 
So to recap, the solution is to print out your query and look at it!
