I am new to asp databases. I have some questions:<BR> <BR>Q1: While a user is updating a record will he/she be "locking" just the record, or will the entire table be locked ?<BR>Q2: In building a simple asp hit counter, I added an extra field called "hits" onto the pages table. Won&#039t the system CRASH if more than one person logs onto the page i.e. more than one person tries to increase the hit count simultaneously.<BR> <BR>Excuse my basic knowledge.<BR>
