Retreive last id from record inserted in db (ASP/VB)

Hi,

I am using dreamweaver, ms sql 2008 and classic ASP/VB page. Below is the code that inserts a record into the database. I do need however to add some code in there to retreive the last id inserted and save it in a session variable named: Receiptidtemp

I have that type of code for an ASP/Javascript page but not for ASP/VB. If someone could help with this would be great :)

Thanks.

Please submit your code.

Also you could use store procedure for insert statement and return last inserted row Id which you could assign to variable "Receiptidtemp"

Here is an example on using store-procedure and return value:

Yeah, i dont wanna go there for this one. If I can get this done with ASP then will keep things simple. For example with ASP/JS all I add is this lines of code in between the insert statement, something similar in ASP/VB would be great !

-- ASP/JS code--

           <!--set up Auto Number retrieval for SQL Server -->
     var rsNewAutoIncrement = MM_editCmd.ActiveConnection.Execute("select @@identity")
     Session("CaseIDOpened") = rsNewAutoIncrement(0).Value
     <!--rsNewAutoIncrement.Close -->
     <!--var rsNewAutoIncrement = Nothing -->
     <!--end retrieval -->

If you have the working code in JS for VB please try this line, it is setting the recordset.

set rsNewAutoIncrement = MM_editCmd.ActiveConnection.Execute("select @@identity")
Session("CaseIDOpened") = rsNewAutoIncrement(0).Value
