Hey,
   I'm pretty new to asp but I'm working on a page that uses it and has two ADO connections. A friend of mine suggested that instead of putting the ADO code in the main page that I use a SSI, which I thought was great but then realized that I couldn't get it to work. Anyway here is what the code looks like.
<%
set conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.Provider="Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
conn.Open "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\asp\Orders.mdb"
%>
<%
set rs=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")
rs.Open "Select [DEALER NAME], Address, CITY, STATE, Zip From [CURRENT ORDERS] WHERE ORIGIN='Z00'", conn
%>
<%
for each x in rs.Fields
      Response.Write(x.value & "<br />")
%>
      <%next%>

This is the file included with this string
<--!#include file="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\asp\ADO\consignee.asp"-->

If anyone knows why this might not work I would appreciate any help.

You shouldn't put the literal path in the include tag e.g.

If the include file is in the same folder
<--!#include file="consignee.asp"-->

If its in folders below the current folder prefix the folder path to the filename
<--!#include file="asp\ADO\consignee.asp"-->

If you want to go up a directory (and then down another folder path, ../ tells the server to go up one folder level
<--!#include virtual="../asp/ADO/consignee.asp"-->

Gary,
   Thanks for the reply. I actually figured out after I posted this question that I didn't need the full pathname in the include but, since you had the right answer the points are yours.

Thanks again.

Glad you got it sorted but why the grade of B?

Gary,
   Tha only reason I didn't post an A is because the A grade seemed to be for over-achievement like posting links to reference materials and that sort of thing. You got an A in my book though.

I really do appreciate the help Gary.

Thanks,
     Stratocaster.

Lunchy,
     Thanks for the post. I do understand the grading policy.. in fact I re-read it right before I awarded a grade to this reply. I was however in a bit of a rush since I was at work while I was replying to this response. I do think that Gary should receive an A for his post. It did after all effectively answer the question I posted. I apologize to Gary for mis-grading his answer.


Thanks,
    Stratocaster
