I was wondering if there is a way to return control back to an ASP page before a vb COM object has completed. I want to initiate an object from an ASP page and then continue with the ASP page and let the COM object continue to run until it completes. I am writing this for an instance where I have a user inserting records into a database, and have to do many checks on the data before inserting into the database. I don't want to slow down the user from entering the data while waiting for a COM object to complete it checks and its insert.
