I have an insert new employee page in asp.  On submit click, it adds the new record to the database and goes to a "done" page.  How do I get it to immediately go to a detail page for the record that's just been entered?

what is detail page?

say it is detail.aspx and accept a querystring with EmpID

then just do this

server.redirect("detail.aspx?EmpID=" & NewEmpID)

or, use session

session("EmpID") = NewEmpID
server.transfer("details.aspx",true)

in detail.aspx use session("EmpID") to show the info... if EmpID is posted to edit page, then you can use

Request("EmpID") on detail.aspx since we transfer the control to detail page (meaning all posted values will be available on that page too) without using session variable...

When you update your database with new employee values, after calling RS.Update use RS.MoveLast to get the ID of the field you just entered, like this::

...
RS.Update
RS.Requery
RS.MoveLast
LastId = RS("emplyee_id")
RS.Close

Response.Redirect "details.asp?id=" LastId

strSQL = "INSERT INTO Login (FirstName, LastName) " _

cn.execute(strSQL)         

set rs = cn.execute("SELECT @@Identity")
id=rs(0)
response.Redirect("details.asp?id=" & id)

Assuming you have your connection provider open, here's a fictional example that would do what you asked for:

SQL = "SELECT Id, Name, Surname, Whatever, Fields, You, Have FROM Employees"
RS.Open SQL, Conn, 3, 3

RS.AddNew
RS(1) = Request.Form("Name")
RS(2) = Request.Form("Surname")
RS(3) = Request.Form("Whatever")
RS(4) = Request.Form("Fields")
RS(5) = Request.Form("You")
RS(6) = Request.Form("Have")
RS.Update
RS.Requery
RS.MoveLast
LastId = RS(0) 'this is field with Id
RS.Close

Response.Redirect "yourpage.asp?id=" LastId

I gotta say that SELECT/UPDATE is much more bullet-proof and forgiving than INSERT method, but nonetheless, your answer is here, it's your choice which method.

Why's that?
(No expert here myself, just a novice. Just the way I have done it.  Might change my methods.)
