Just curious, I heard recently that aparently ASP runs on Linux. Is this true? I wasn't aware of that.

Hi Cindy,

Yar that's right.. although ASP will only run on Microsoft IIS Servers, there is a particular 'flavour' of ASP called Chili!Soft ASP that will run on Unix and other platforms. Here are some useful links if you want to find out more! ;-)

Also keep in mind that ChiliASP cannot compare to ASP & you are very limited to what it can do

ONe that I remember just recent was recordset.update method does not work. My workaround has been to use: DatabaseConnection.Execute(SQLStatement) and build the SQL statement to update the table you wish to update.
