Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: ASP LOOP?

  1. #1


    ok. i'm a newb to asp, but here it goes

    im making a news updater thinger.

    heres the code i have so far.

    Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    Conn = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=" & Server.MapPath("news/news.mdb")
    set RS = Conn.Execute("SELECT TOP 3 * FROM updates ORDER BY date DESC;")
    DO UNTIL RS.eof 
    id = RS("id")
    date = RS("date")
    title = RS("title")
    body = RS("body")
    user = RS("user")
    response.write "<div class=""asset""><strong>"& title & "<br><br><strong>"& date & "- by </strong>"& user &"<br><br>"& body &"</div>"
    set RS = nothing
    set Conn = nothing
    now, with my luck, the whole thing will be wrong.

    it turns up the error.....
    Microsoft VBScript compilation error- Error '800a040e'
    'loop' without 'do' 
    /home.asp, line 72 LOOP^
    thanks for any help.

    Instead of Do Until...Loop, use:

    While Not RS.EOF

    Hope that helps

    Object required: 'Conn'
