the posts are datestamped when submitted to the db. Then you would have your SQL statement retrieve all posts for today's date<BR><%<BR>Today = Date()<BR>SQL = "SELECT SubmitDate FROM Table WHERE SubmitDate = '"& Today &"'"<BR>%><BR><BR>Then you could open the recordset and get the recordcount<BR><%<BR>dailyHits = RS.RecordCount<BR>Response.Write "There have been " & dailyHits & " so far today."<BR><BR>Some people prefer using an array to the recordcount property of the recordset object. If so, then you would just use UBound to find the upperlimit of the array. Up to you.
