I had written this query a few days ago<BR>& maybe my question was not correctly understood.<BR>What I want to know is that in websites like sports<BR>& stocks websites where the figures keep changing every<BR>minute how is the backend script written for these sites.<BR>Like I know that with the meta tags refresh you can automatically<BR>refresh the page after a period of time,but what exactly I want to know is how are those values of scores & stocks figures shown in the page ,do they come from a database,a text file--which one is a more effiecient way.I mean how does the administrator or the ASP program take care of updating the values page,thats the part of program what I want to know<BR>An example code would be very handy.
