Use the GetString() method to speed up your ASP script (instead of using multiple Response.Write's).
The following example demonstrates one way of how to display a database query in an HTML table:
For a large query, this can slow down the script processing time, since many Response.Write commands must be processed by the server.
The solution is to have the entire string created, from <table> to </table>, and then output it - using Response.Write just once.
The GetString() method allows you to display the string with only one Response.Write. It also eliminates the do...loop code and the conditional test that checks if the recordset is at EOF.
To create an HTML table with data from a recordset, we only need to use three of the parameters above (all parameters are optional):
Note: The GetString() method is an ADO 2.0 feature. You can download ADO 2.0 at http://www.microsoft.com/data/download.htm.
In the following example we will use the GetString() method to hold the recordset as a string:
The str variable above contains a string of all the columns and rows returned by the SQL SELECT statement. Between each column the HTML </td><td> will appear, and between each row, the HTML </td></tr><tr><td> will appear. This will produce the exact HTML we need with only one Response.Write.
