is any alternative of "history.back()" in ASP?

hello expert,
 i am working in web site development for b2b application in ASP. In this application i am facing one problem as follow:
      There is one form for Customer Master. In this form i ask user to give User Name, Password, First Name etc. Now on submit button i check database for Unique User Name. if user name is already exist then  i want to show same form with given data. Is there any function in ASP like " history.back() " in javascript.
      If you find any solution then give me reply as soon as possible . i am awaiting for your positive reply.

Kamal you have to write Response.Buffer=True which FRehman missed.So your code will look something like this


<%
Response.Buffer=True
loginName=Request.QueryString("Uname")
pwd =Request.QueryString("pwd")
set Myconn=server.CreateObject("ADODB.connection")
Myconn.Open "DRIVER={MicroSoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=" & server.MapPath("./website.mdb")
set rs=server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")
rs.open "Select * from Login where usrName='" &loginName& "' and pwd='" &pwd& "'" ,Myconn ,adOpenDynamic,adLockOptimistic
if  rs.eof then
rs.AddNew
rs.Fields("usrName")=loginName
rs.Fields("pwd")=pwd
rs.Update
else
response.rediect("previouspage.asp")
end if
%>

Actually you don't need it if you don't write anything to the browser first!

Response.Buffer=True
