I'm just getting started with ASP.  Right now I have a web page that is horribly long.  What I'd like to do is have a Visual Basic object inject content into a <td></td> inside a table based off of button pushes etc.  Can anyone show me a simple example to do this.  Just a single table, a single VB object, and maybe a few lines of ASP to do this?

do you mean something like this where your activex dll returns a string?

<%
dim obj
set obj=server.createobject("projectName.ClassName")

%>

<table>
  <tr>
    <td><%=obj.methodCall %>
  </tr>
</table>

Why not try using subroutines & functions.

<%
Function Inject(Stuff)
  Dim injected
  injected = "<td>" & Stuff & "<td>"
End function
%>

<table>
  <tr>
<%
For col = 1 to 5
 Response.Write Inject(col)
Next
%>
  <tr>
</table>

OR do you actually want buttons on the same page to change the content of a &lt;td>?

<table>
     <td><div id="t1">Hi</div></td>
</table>

<form name="test">
<input type="button" value="Hello" onClick="doHello(1)">
<input type="button" value="There" onClick="doHello(2)">
</form>

<script>
     function doHello(i){
          switch(i) {
               case 1:
                    t1.innerText = "Hello"
                    break
               case 2:
                    t1.innerText = "There"
          }
     }
</script>
