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.

Cheers,

Thread: ASP newb question

  1. #1

    ASP newb question

    im somewhat a newb to ASP.

    I have stuff loaded from a database, and i want to insert it in my page where i want it


    say i have a column called "users" loaded. how would i make it load into the page. all i have is.


    Code:
     Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    Conn = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=" & Server.MapPath("news/news.mdb")
      
    GI = "SELECT TOP " & updates & " id, date, title, body, user FROM updates ORDER BY date DESC;"
    (just ignore all the other columns)

    what would i use to be able to insert into my page?

    Thanks for any help

    what you need to do is set the SQL statement into a recordset, like so

    Code:
    set RS = Conn.Execute("SELECT * FROM Users")
    This should return a recordset and you can use that to display the details in your page.

    Good site to find out more is http://www.asp101.com/, http://www.w3schools.com or http://www.asptutorial.info/

    hope this helps
