Hello I'm try to develop a web site on my computer using Personal Web Server as the testing plateform.  When I use the following lines

set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
  rs.open "SELECT * FROM Directors WHERE Region=" & Request.Querystring("Region"), "DSN=AirMLS;uid=" & Application("uid") & ";pwd=" & Application("pwd"), 0, 1
  where = 1

I get a class not registered error.  How do I go about fixing this error.  The ActiveX Data Object are registered on the computer because I can easily use them from within VB5.  So what do I have to do to make them available from the Personal Web Server.

First, which OS are you running on?

Second, What version of Personal Web Server are you running?

If you get a Class not registered error, it would happen before it even gets to the Rs.Open statement.

There are several versions of OleDB floating out there...install the latest one.

<% SET rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rs.open "DSN=AirMLS;UID=" & Application("uid") & ";pwd==" & Application("pwd")" "
MyQuery="SELECT * FROM Directors WHERE Region=" & Request.Querystring("Region")"
Set myQueryRS= rs.Execute(MyQuery)%>

Always try to set you query in a variable before calling Open method.

The answer was caused by an incorrectly registered class.

Just check the installation of PWS.

It has nothing to do with PWS... Get the newest database drivers from Microsoft... here is the URL: http://microsoft.com/data/mdac2.htm

Also, you code should look something like this:
<%
    Set conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    conn.open "airMLS",Application("uid"),Application("pwd")
    Set Session("airMLS_conn") = conn
%>
<%
    sql = "SELECT * FROM Directors WHERE Region=" & Request.Querystring("Region") & ";"
    Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    rs.Open sql, conn, 3, 3
%>

That is the proper database connection setup...
