Answer:

Although this question really depends on the provider, in general, the answer is no to MS Access views and yes to MS SQL Server views so long as you open the RecordSet editable.

ASP Classic Topic:
Tip of the Month

When naming constants, Microsoft suggests you prefix each constant with "con" as in conYourConstant. Although, they also say the older all caps with words separated by an underscore is still acceptable (i.e. YOUR_CONSTANT).

Because I code in multiple languages and I really don't like all caps with underscores, I've adopted a lowercase k in place of con as in kFeetToMeter.
