I have a doubt in vb.I have a employee table in oracle, which has 2 fields(empno, empname). I need to add a field with datatype,size defined from vb.Actually, I have a screen in asp,wherein it accepts the field name,datatype,size and when pressed ok, it should check if that fields exists, if not then add else prompt a message in asp, that field already exists.This I need to write it as a component and call that one from asp page. Have u ever come across this sort of requirement. Give me some ideas,thanks<BR>Bill
