    Text files.<BR><BR>Which are incredibly crappy places to store info.<BR><BR>Go see the ASPFAQs (link at top right of this page) and the category "FileSystemObject" to see some of the horrible limitation of using files.<BR><BR>Get smart. Be smart. Change your mind and use a database. You will *not* regret it!<BR><BR>
