I want to store  “Total Score()”  that is printed on the screen with the “document.writeln…”  into a database.

How to I store the data generated by the “getTotalScore()” into a database??


Code:

function getTotalScore()  {
    var scoreResult = 0;

    }
    return scoreResult;


The line below prints the value stored in getTotalScore() on the screen:
     

  document.writeln("<TD ALIGN='CENTER'><font size='2'><B>" + getTotalScore() + "</B></TD>")

Just pass the result of the function to the query.

varReturnfromFunction = getTotalScore()

INSERT INTO myTable (myField)
VALUES (varReturnfromFunction)
0

What server will you be using? (ISS, Apache, etc)
Scripting language? (PHP, ASP, ASP.NET, etc)

Check this links:

I'm using IIS server.

I can't figure out where to insert:

varReturnfromFunction = getTotalScore()

INSERT INTO myTable (myField)
VALUES (varReturnfromFunction)


Where do I insert it - in head, body, before head, between <%  %>?

Do I add this text into the page containing the function or can it be added to a different page after the function?

Do I create a Recordset and Insert from the Server Behavior?

You will need to create a recordset first.

Then you can create a server behavior to make insert.  That is the easiest way.

However, if you were to code this by hand you would;

Put the code in or above the head tags,  although code can be placed anywhere on the page
And
You would put the code between the code tags.  For asp they are the <%  %> tags.

I tried both the recordset and the insert.

Where do I place the:

??         varReturnfromFunction = getTotalScore()

??         INSERT INTO myTable (myField)                
??         VALUES (varReturnfromFunction)

And, do I place this on the same page as the function or can I place the form to insert data on a different page.

Unless you include# the page with the function on the second page you will need to put it on the same page as the function.

Place the insert code after the function call.

Created Recordset and Insert from Behavior.  Added the suggested commands but received an error message:


•      Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript compilation (0x800A0401)
Expected end of statement
/cats/summary1.asp, line 334, column 12
INSERT INTO [Cats Table] (Score)
-----------^

Here are the codes:

<%
Dim Recordset1
Dim Recordset1_numRows

Set Recordset1 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
Recordset1.ActiveConnection = MM_conCats_STRING
Recordset1.Source = "SELECT UserTime, UseScore FROM [Cats Table]"
Recordset1.CursorType = 0
Recordset1.CursorLocation = 2
Recordset1.LockType = 1
Recordset1.Open()

Recordset1_numRows = 0
%>




function getTotalScore() {
    .
    .
    .
    return Result;
}

.
.
.

//-->
</SCRIPT>

</HEAD>



<BODY bgcolor="#FFFFFF" onLoad="sendResults()">

<%
varReturnfromFunction = getTotalScore()

INSERT INTO [Cats Table] (Score)
VALUES (varReturnfromFunction)

 %>

.
.
.

        document.writeln("<TD ALIGN='CENTER'><font size='2'><B>" + getTotalScore() + "</B></TD>")

.
.
.

</script>
    <form name="form1" method="POST" action="<%=MM_editAction%>">
      <input type="text" name="textfield">
      <input type="text" name="textfield">
      <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit">
      <input type="hidden" name="MM_insert" value="form1">
</form>
     
</BODY>
</HTML>

I changed the <% as suggested, received the same error message:

•     Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript compilation (0x800A0401)
Expected end of statement
/cats/summary1.asp, line 338, column 12
INSERT INTO [Cats Table] (Score)

No Solutions, still cannot store the data generated by the “getTotalScore()” into a database.
