"My ASP script works on my server but it does not work on your server."

MSSQL Connection

Sometimes, you may be wondering how to make your ASP script connect to the MSSQL database that you have just got from us. You might have received information like this from us:

==========================================================
MsSQL2000 LOGIN INFORMATION
==========================================================
Host IP : 202.157.142.190
Database name : mydatabase_db
User name : mydbaseuser
Password : mydbpass
(Please use "SQL Server Authentication".)
==========================================================

 

There are many ways to connect to the database. Here is just one example. The below is a simple example of how you can connect to your database, using the information we gave you above, do a simple query, and display the results.

<HTML>
<BODY>
<%
Set MyConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
MyConn.Open "Driver={SQL Server};" & _
"Server=202.157.142.190;" & _
"Database=mydatabase_db;" & _
"Uid=mydbaseuser;" & _
"Pwd=mydbpass;"

SQL_query = "SELECT uid, fname, lname FROM mytable"

Set RS = MyConn.Execute(SQL_query)
WHILE NOT RS.EOF
%>

<LI><%=RS("uid")%>: <%=RS("fname")%>: <%=RS("lname")%>

<%
RS.MoveNext
WEND
%>

</BODY>
</HTML>
