    "SELECT" statement & conditions..

    I'm using SQL/ASP, I'm trying to pull a record from one mdb table and copy it to another mdb table, but i'm having some problems.. here is my code:

    Line 1>Sql_sel = "SELECT Top 1 CUSTID FROM cust ORDER by CUSTID DESC"
    Line 2>CUSTID = Sql_sel
    Line 3>response.write(CUSTID)

    Line 1, CUSTID being the ID field, cust being the table which holds the records.
    Line 3, is a test to see if it pulls the right data, unfortunately it doesn't infact where i was expecting to see the lastest CUSTID displayed it infact just displays Line 1 as i have written it. This mkaes me beleive that i have made a simple syntax error.. can anyone spot any faults?

    You're missing your connection to the Database and the Recordset to pull the data back. Almost looks like you're trying to do it in PHP fashion...completely different...Here is something like I use for a connection to the DB...

    'Set the Connection Object --------------------------------------------------------------
    'Define connection object
    Dim conn
    SET conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    conn.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Password=password;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=userid;Initial Catalog=table;Data Source=database"
    conn.CommandTimeout = 30
    conn.ConnectionTimeout = 30

    Once that is setup then you would do...

    Dim Sql_sel, RS
    'Set up recordset
    Set RS = Server.CreatObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    Sql_sel = "SELECT Top 1 CUSTID FROM cust ORDER by CUSTID DESC"

    RS.Open Sql_sel, conn

    Response.Write RS.Fields("CUSTID")
