I would like to be able to see my sql querys on screen (or in any other way) when debugging.

In classing asp I could just print out the query with it's values like

sql = "Select * from table where id = " & request("id")
set rs = conn.execute(sql)

then I could see what values where in the query.

How can I get a similar result in
