Evaluating return value of script

Using VBPro v7.2

I have a Run Script step, which has a VBScript. The VBScript runs a function in a Access DB, and the Access DB function returns a -1 on fail, an 0 on pass. How can I make my Run Script step use the return value of my Access DB function, so I can evaluate a pass/fail condition on the Run Script step? Thanks!

If AccessDBResult Then Step.BuildStatus = vbldStepStatFailure

I'm usually good at reading between the lines, but I wasn't sure on this one. So where would I put the above If statement? Also the link you gave talked about evaluating a vbld_* function status, but couldn't make out with the instructions either. Thanks!

You said "I have a Run Script step, which has a VBScript. The VBScript runs a function in a Access DB, and the Access DB function returns a -1 on fail, an 0 on pass." So the If statement (obviously adjusted to actually check the result of your function) would go in the VBScript code after the call to the Access DB function.

I was referring to the help in that topic which states "The step's BuildStatus property can be set to vbldStepStatFailed in the script code to signal failure of the step."

So I have something like this in the VBScript that's in the Run Script step?

if MyAccessDBFunction == 0 then
Step.BuildStatus = vbldStepStatSucceeded
else
Step.BuildStatus = vbldStepStatFailed

That works too (except = is VBScript equality, not ==). -1 (non-zero) equates to True in VBScript, and succeeded is the default status, so

If MyAccessDBResult Then Step.BuildStatus = vbldStepStatFailure

should also work.
