Using ASP

Active Server Pages (ASP) is Microsoft's version of PHP for Windows. It is an embedded-HTML, server-side scripting language that can be written in a variety of languages. The most common language is VBScript. Any file ending in .asp is treated as an ASP file and passed through the ASP interpreter.

A great Web site for finding ASP resources is ASP-HELP (http://www.asp-help.com), but there are numerous other ones that can be found using the search engine of your choice.

To connect to a database using ASP, you will need to use a DSN or DSN-less connection string. A DSN connection string requires you to set up a DSN in DSN Administration or SQL Administration (for SQL Server databases). Once there, click on the "View Sample Connection String" link for a number of sample connection strings.
