How can I limit the number of records returned by ASP?

I would like to limit the number of records returned on a single page by ASP like yahoo does. ie 30 records are returned by only 10 appear per page.  I am not sure how ASP saves the records I am not listing.

There are several ways, you can use "bookmarks" in recordsets, but it can also be done much simpler.

For the first page
========================
intMax = 30
i = 0
Do While Not RS.EOF AND i <= intMax
  Response.write RS("yourdata") & "<br>"
  i = i + 1
RS.MoveNext
Loop
=======================


For all next pages, you can have a "startvalue", which you need to pass in a querystring/form.

Something like:

intStart = Request.Querystring("startvalue")
intMax = intStart + 30

RS.Move(intStart)

intMax = 30
i = intStart
Do While Not RS.EOF AND i <= intMax
  Response.write RS("yourdata") & "<br>"
  i = i + 1
RS.MoveNext
Loop
