I'm the fellow that has been trying to read and display 30 records making up the Dow Industrial Index. I thought this was going to be a lot easier then it's turn out.
It seems that I am getting bogged down in just listing the beginning and ending prices of these stocks in a right juistified mode. Assuming that I overcome this problem (which no one seems to be able to solve), the next problem is going to be to limit each page to 15 records.
Now these problems seem to be monumental and it makes me wonder how other folks are succeeding in their respective projects if I can't even display a few records. This leads in turn leads me to think that maybe the problem is relying on Msxml2.DOMDocument and Msxml2.FreeThreadedDOMDocument to pull this off.
Should I be using another ActiveX Data Object here that is ADO like - that would give me better control over the recordset so that, for example, it would handle all the issues associated with paging, etc.
Am I on the right track here? Is Msxml2.DOMDocument the most up-to-date thing out there if I am willing to make my web application only compatible with IE 6.0 and 7.0?
Thanks for your help in advance.
