Hi, <BR><BR>I have an ASP page which returns LOTs of text data. This is downloaded over <BR>the internet using Excel and takes a while. <BR><BR>Because of this I&#039;d like to have an ASP function that will compress the <BR>output of the ASP (and a similar function to decompress it in Excel VBA). <BR>I&#039;ve found plenty of VB examples, but non of them work with ASP and I do not <BR>have the expertise to convert them. Does anyone here know of working ASP <BR>text compression functions? <BR><BR>I do not have admin permissions on the Server, and users are unlikely to be able to install DLLs on their machines, so all compression and decompression will ideally have to be done purely through VBScipt/VBA code. <BR><BR>Thanks in advance, <BR><BR><BR>Jon.
