How can I get an ASP page to either run a function within itself or SQL stored procedure without waiting for a response, i.e. kick it off but move on don't worry about waiting for any returned values.

There should be some invisible return, in a hidden frame or in an image. When you do it as an image, you'll have return some code,
<img src="runthisfile.asp" width=1 height=1>

============
runthisfile.asp
============

<%
Response.ContentType = "image/GIF"
' your code here


%>
<!-- #include virtual="/images/pixel.gif" -->

Sybe,

Soory for being a bit thick, but will this result in my calling asp running at the same time as the called asp, i.e. will they both end up running simaltaneously.  I don't want the calling asp to stop while the called asp is running.

I'll accept or reject your answer when you can clarify this for me.  Cheers.

Ignore my last little message.  I have just carried out some tests and the speed difference is startling.  75% faster on my function.  WOW.

Thanks for you quick response.
