Hi cici,

The reason you get the return of -1 is because you have not set your cursor and by default you will have the minimium cursor adForwardOnly. to count records you would need to set atleast adOpenStatic.

Kens got some good info @ http://www.adopenstatic.com/faq/jetcursortypes.asp

Good Luck
