    Default What do you mean when you say...

    ..."What&#039;s best"? You program a search in ASP, either using VBScript or JScript. You can either have a simple substring comparison (in SQL that&#039;s LIKE) or research stemming and other algorithms that allow for typos. In a word, you can make it as simple or as complex as you like.<BR><BR>Linking to a details page from your results page is as simple as placing an anchor (&#060;A HREF...&#062;) and pass the record&#039;s ID in the querystring.<BR><BR>Oliver.
