I am using ASP to access a database via ODBC. I find that this is very slow however. Is there another method of accessing a database using asp without using ODBC??

Yes you can use OLE DB drivers if there is a driver avialable for the type of database that you are connecting to.  This could be of an advantage because it would bypass and ODBC calls and go from ASP to OLE DB to the database.  Possibly speeding up you connections.
But the one thing that will speed up you connection the most is GOOD database design, limited the number of returned records in a recordset, using the simplest cursor that can be applied to the situation, ie not use a dynamic or snapshot cursor if all you need is a read only forward only recordset etc.

At the monent there are 40,000 records in the database. This is an SQL server database. When i use ODBC to connect to the db and retieve results it is very slow. But when i use the SQL server query tool The results are returned very fast.

It might depend on how the results are shown in a browser. If the result list is long and displayed in a table, the browser not display anything untill all results are "in" and the table layout can be calculated.
