Retrieving info using ASP

Posted on 1998-04-15

I have a database for student information.  What is the best way for students to retrieve only there information out of the database without getting someone elses.  
I have it set up now - they enter their name and id on every form they submit and I use that as a means for them to retrieve that information out of the database without getting someone elses data.

Is there another way to go about doing this?

If this is an ODBC complient databse, this is very simple to do with ASPs, using ADO.

Simply execute a SQL statement like this :

sql = "SELECT * from StudentTable WHERE Name in ('Name')"

You can also save the name in the Session Object so that the student does not have to keep reentering it.
ex.
Session("Name") = StudentName

But only use the Session object if you are hitting one server and not load balancing between multiple servers. A cookie however would work in both cases.
