Saving resources by closing conn/recordsets and using 'adModeRead'

Fairly simple asp question for the asp experts.( ihope)

I would like to code my pages to save as much resources as possible. Im using Access and ASP.  So I need to save as much as possible.

I need to know how to use the adModeRead
 in this connection.:


<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT"%>
<!--#include file="../Connections/myconnection.asp" -->
<%
set Recordset1 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
Recordset1.ActiveConnection = MM_myconnection_STRING
Recordset1.Source = "SELECT * FROM calendar"
Recordset1.CursorType = 0
Recordset1.CursorLocation = 2
Recordset1.LockType = 3
Recordset1.Open()
Recordset1_numRows = 0
%>

Also does this code close the connection AND the recordset, or is there other code that I should place at the bottom of the page?

<%
Recordset1.Close()
set recordset1 = nothing
%>


I use this on every asp page.  I hope that this opens and closes connections to free up as much resource as possible, with out have to completely re-code many pages.
Thank you in advance.

I wouldnt worry about setting a connection readonly since its only likely to be open a few seconds anyway.  You obviously use Macromedia, this is your code condensed to its smallest with a basic cursor type to allow you to go through the results.

<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT"%>
<!--#include file="../Connections/myconnection.asp" -->

set Recordset1 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
Recordset1.ActiveConnection = MM_myconnection_STRING
Recordset1.Open "SELECT * FROM calendar",MM_myconnection_STRING
%>

And your closing script is correct, nothing else needed

Thank you, and yes, I use ultradev 2004.  
I have had trouble with my host about 'temporary folder resources'.  I was told it was about the open connections, but I really dont know.  

I also have read that the readonly takes up less space.   It is possible that I may have about 300 users, probably not at once , but I dont know how it will act.

Thanks.

I've never used the readonly aspect of the connection so I can't verify its usefulness.  You're also not using the connection object, you're just using the connection string so you can't even use that property in your code as it is.
But you understand that the recordset connection only exists for the time it takes for you to get the data, it doesn't persist.  You should always close your objects as soon as you have finished with them.  Tell the host to increase the temp folder allocated space
