i want to delete the added values and wrote the following code. my database is in MSAccess.the table name is 'name' and there are only three fields in that table, 'no','lname' and 'age'. 'no' is the primary key. the page has the option to delete the added values by entering the 'no' as 'ID'. when user enter the ID and hit the delete buttong everything goes fine but the record do not delete.what should i do now? what should be the code?
 


<!--delete.asp-->
<!--include file="adovbs.inc"-->

<%
dim mySQL
dim reccount

on error resume next

Set Conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

myDSN="DSN=mydsn;uid=;pwd="

conn.open myDSN

Set rs=server.CreateObject("adodb.RecordSet")




id=Request.Form("id")

mySQL=  "Select * from name where no ='"&id&"'"

rs.cursortype=adOpenKeyset
rs.LockType=adLockOptimistic
rs.open mySQL,conn
reccount=rs.recordcount
rs.delete
%>


<html>
<head>
<script>
function back(form) {history.back(); }

it is deleting the record set data & not the actual data storec on the database
Try this

mySql ="Delete from name where no=' "&id" '
Con.Execute mySql

dim mySQL
dim reccount

Set Conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

myDSN="DSN=mydsn;uid=;pwd="

conn.open myDSN

Set rs=server.CreateObject("adodb.RecordSet")




id=TRIM(Request.Form("id"))

mySql ="DELETE from name where no=' "&id" '
Con.Execute mySql

Con.Close
Set Rs= Nothing
Set Con=Nothing

%>

The rest will be followed by the HTML code you are using. In case you still have problem with Html code let me know.

Although I am pretty sure all you really need to do is change the last line of your ASP code from rs.delete to "rs.delete adAffectCurrent", the following should also do the trick just in case:

Also...take a look at the back button in the HTML...

<!--delete.asp-->
<!--#include file="adovbs.inc"-->

<%

myDSN="DSN=mydsn;uid=;pwd="

dim id, rs, sqltext

id=trim(Request.Form("id"))
ID=cInt(id)

set rs=server.createobject("adodb.recordset")
sqltext="Delete FROM name where no=" & ID
rs.open sqltext, myDSN,1,3

rs.close
set rs=nothing

%>


<html>
<head>
</head>
<body>
 <center>
<H1> Maintenance </H1>
 </center>
<br><br>
<center>
<H2>
The record has been successfully deleted </H2>
<br><br><br>

<Input type="button" Value="Back" onClick="history.back(-1)">

</center>
</body>
</html>
