ASP Classic - Adding a Database


Learn ASP Classic by building a web site from scratch.

Part III: Adding a Database.


What We Will Do

In this chapter we will:

  • Create a page to list data from a database

Displaying Data from Database

With ASP, you can easily display data from a database.

You can connect to an existing database, or create a new database from scratch.

In this example we will connect to an existing Microsoft Access database.

You can download the database from this link: Northwind.zip


Adding a Customers Page

In the "DemoASP" folder, create a new ASP file named "Customers.asp".

Put the following code inside the file:

Customers.asp

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
<head>
  <title>ASP Demo</title>
  <link href="Site.css" rel="stylesheet">
</head>

<body>

<div id="main">
<h1>Customers</h1>
<%
set conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.Provider="Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
conn.Open("C:\WebData\Northwind.mdb")
set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")
rs.Open "Select CompanyName, City, Country FROM Customers", conn
%>
<table border="1">
<tr><th>Name</th><th>City</th><th>Country</th></tr>
<%do until rs.EOF%>
<tr>
<%for each x in rs.Fields%>
<td>
<%Response.Write(x.value)%>
</td>
<%next%>
</tr>
<%
rs.MoveNext
loop
%>
</table>
<%
rs.close
conn.close
%>

<!-- #include="Footer.inc" -->
</div>

</body>
</html>
