Hi there:

Here goes a simple example in ASP:

------ 8< ------- 8< -----
srtDataBaseConnectionString = "Data Source=" & Server.MapPath ("/cgi-bin/mydatabase.mdb")
Set AdoConn = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Connection")
AdoConn.Provider = "Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
AdoConn.ConnectionString = srtDataBaseConnectionString
AdoConn.Open
sSql = "SELECT field1 FROM mytable"
set rsTmp = AdoConn.Execute (sSql)
do until rsTmp.eof
  response.write(rsTmp("myfield1") & "<br>")
  rsTmp.movenext
loop
AdoConn.close
Set AdoConn = nothing
---------- 8< ------- 8< -------
