I've recently switched from ASP to ASP.NET but I currently working on site that uses ASP.

In .NET I can use a DAL layer class and return a dataset to an object. I'm trying to do the same in ASP.

So, forgetting the classes etc and simplifying the matter I basically just need something like:

rsData = getDataset("SELECT * FROM table")
If Not rsData.Eof Then
         'Do my thing...
End If

Public Function getDataset(strSQL)
      getDataset = DBConn.Execute(strSQL)
End Function

I get "Object doesn't support this property or method: 'Eof'" so I guess I can't return a dataset.

to assign an object to a variable you need to use SET

SET <variable> = object
