Recordset paging in VB ASP with mySQL Database

Posted on 2007-11-22
Last Modified: 2008-03-15

I'm building a website that needs to connect to a mySQL database.

Using the code below, I can connect to the database and display x amount of records using the LIMIT function of mySQL.

I now want to be able to page through all the records in blocks of x with the pages listed at the bottom and a total count of records.

How can I do this?


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

OBJdbConn.Open = "Driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};Server=admin-sw;Database=ijtd_export; User=root;Password=cre2unat;Option=3;"



Dim rsCallBackStatus

Dim rsCallBackStatus_numRows

SQLQuery = "SELECT * FROM vallinone LIMIT 0, 20"

Set rsCallBackStatus = OBJdbConn.Execute(SQLQuery)

rsCallBackStatus_numRows = 0


<%do until rsCallBackStatus.eof%>






Set rsCallBackStatus = Nothing


Set OBJdbConn = Nothing


Open in new window

Hint for getting this done . Start having two variables like currentpage = 1 and noofrows = 20 and apply the variables to your limit like below.
SQLQuery = "SELECT * FROM vallinone LIMIT " & (currentpage * noofrows)-20 & " , " & noofrows
and then keep a hyperlink below the page with currentpage + 1 in ">" sign and move on.

You will have to put some if else logics for "<" or "<<" and ">" or ">>" and that should be good.
