Edit Record

[Other Languages] 

Languages Focus

This common syntax name documents editing a record as a whole: add/insert, edit, post data, and delete.

ASP Classic:   AddNew, Update, Delete

In ASP, using ADO, you use RecordSet.AddNew to add a new record, Recordset.Update to post the record, and RecordSet.Delete to delete it. To edit a record, you open the RecordSet using an editable cursor.

Syntax Example:

The following code snippet adds a record to a given editable RecordSet with FullName and Created fields:

objRS.Fields("FullName") = "Barack Obama"
objRS.Fields("Created")  = Now
[Not specified yet. Coming...]

Filter Records

[Other Languages] 
ASP Classic:   Filter

In ASP, using ADO, you filter a set of records using the Filter property.

Syntax Example:
objRecordSet.Filter = "ExtEmpType='P'"

Find Record

[Other Languages] 

Languages Focus

Finding a record is about moving a cursor to a specific record within a set of records (documented here). In addition to finding a record, you can sort, filter, and loop a set of records (documented in their topics).

ASP Classic:   Find, Seek

In ASP, using ADO, you use Find and Seek to move a cursor of a RecordSet to a matching record.

Syntax Example:

Given a valid ADO recordset, the following code snippet finds a specific user and prints out their age:

TC.Find " UserID='mprestwood' "
Response.Write TC.Fields("Age")

ASP Classic:   MoveFirst, MoveLast, MoveNext
