    Default building a search mechanism

    Hello all. I am trying to build a search mechanism using a like query that allows the user to input a name that will determine the information pulled up. First of all, I have a text box that asks for the name, which will ultimately be the source for the where clause in the query. Next, I want to be able to display the list of records from that query on the same page as the text box. Is that possible? Also, is it possible to do a request.form on the same page as the form? Thanks.

    Default Yes it's all possible...

    .. the page will need to submit to itself.<BR><BR>Otherwise, it is all just plain database work. There are a vast number of articles on,, and other sites on the Internet that will teach you how to do what you are asking.<BR><BR>-Doug
