in article<BR><BR>you have the code:<BR>------------<BR>const fldQuantityOrdered = 12<BR>Dim objQuantityOrdered<BR>...<BR>set rs = [open a recordset]<BR>set objQuantityOrdered = rs(fldQuantityOrdered)<BR><BR>Response.Write objQuantityOrdered.Name<BR>-----------<BR>should the last line not read:<BR>Response.Write objQuantityOrdered.Value instead ??<BR>or did you test the wrong code ?<BR><BR>One more question, it would be nice to know how you did the speed measurements, as that might have some importance as to how feasible your results are.<BR><BR>Kind Regards,<BR>Allan Ebdrup<BR><BR>
