I tried to make a forum storing information in a database but i wanted to make it so people cannot post same message over and over but when i used the following:<BR><BR>Message = Request.Form("message")<BR> <BR>strSQL = "select message from forum where (message = &#039" & Request.form("message") & "&#039)"<BR>set myconn3 = server.CreateObject("adodb.connection")<BR>myconn3 .open "webforum"<BR>set RS3 = server.createobject("adodb.recordset")<BR>RS3 = myconn3.Execute(strSQL)<BR>what = rs3("message")<BR> <BR>if message = what then%&#062;<BR>The message you were posting has already been posted.<BR><BR>.....<BR>when the user did NOT duplicate a message, this code would give me error messages. Can anyone help me with this thing im so frustrated hehe. And if you can give me some suggestions as to how to do this better.<BR><BR>
