I read some of your prev posts regarding eof and bof. <BR>http://www.aspmessageboard.com/forum/showMessage.asp?M=322105&F=20&P=1<BR><BR>I have a similar question:<BR>I have a page that posts to itself. You select a month from a drop box. Based on that selection the SQL runs. If nothing is found for that month I need a "N/a" printed. It works fine for that reason, but when the page loads, BOF is true so the message shows. I need the message to hold of until the user has made a selection. I really dont want to submit to another page either. I can post sample code if this dosen't suffice.
