    Hi postpac,<BR><BR>Answers:<BR><BR>1) To &#039create&#039 ASP files, you do not need anything other than what came with your operating system. You can use Notepad, you can use WRITE, you can even do &#039COPY CON SCRIPT.ASP&#039 from a DOS command line (if you&#039re a great typist). You may want to look at using a better editor, such as Ultra-Edit... and if you&#039d like to have an all-in-one evironment with context sensitive help, you may want to purchase Visual Studio from Microsoft (I do not like, but that&#039s another story).<BR><BR>1A) To use/test ASP scripts, you need PWS or IIS 3 or higher. Both of these are also free from Microsoft.<BR><BR>2) I would be happy to help write your script, but you need to be more specific in how it works. The best way to start would be to design the search page that your users will see. By default, this will help to define the search methods that will be used.<BR><BR>
