Although the problem was solved without using a view, when I tried to ignore 
the error using VBScript's "On Error Resume Next" and "Err.Clear" methods, 
the program went on an endless loop. I mean that the errort was ignored, but 
there were no results, the browser was busy for more that 5 minutes 
(practically it hung), and I guess there is a problem with that. I don't 
know if it's ASP though, or the SQL Server, because it's the first time i'm 
working on it. Any suggestions?
