ASP Classic Topic:
Code Snippet of the Month

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.

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

objRS.AddNew
objRS.Fields("FullName") = "Barack Obama"
objRS.Fields("Created")  = Now
objRS.Update

Documented Error of the Month: ASP Classic error 0208 : 80004005 (Generic request collection)
Error: error 'ASP 0208 : 80004005' Cannot use generic Request collection /_private/footer_content.inc, line 72 Cannot use the generic Request collection after calling BinaryRead.
Explanation:

Although you can use the generic request collection, as in Request("SomeValue"), for either Request.Form("SomeValue") or Request.QueryString("SomeValue"), it's best to avoid the generic request collection until it's really needed. The generic request collection causes problems in some circumstances. For example, you cannot call the generic request collection after a BinaryRead.

Resource Link of the Month: VBScript Language Reference on Microsoft.com
The best resource for quickly looking up ASP Classic commands. Even better than having a reference book.
Language Details Topic:
Question:

What is the syntax in ASP Classic for using an associative array?


Answer:

Use a dictionary:

Dim StateList
 
set StateList = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")

StateList.Add "CA", "California"
 
Response.Write "NV is " & StateList("NV")

For more examples, refer to our ASP Classic Associative Array (Scripting.Dictionary) article.

Tip of the Month
Although you can use the generic request collection, as in Request("SomeValue"), for either Request.Form("SomeValue") or Request.QueryString("SomeValue"), it's best to avoid the generic request collection until it's really needed. Use a For Each loop to loop through elements.
