the majority of the work is done via javascript, you just need to make sure you have your asp code spit out the data is JSON format, which is easy to do with aspJSON. Simply include the files, and do the following server side:

sql = "select * from table"
QueryToJSON( conn, sql ).Flush

I recommend setting up your table first and getting it looking the way you want, then add the data fill part.

how do i get the aspjson to read / write the columns dynamically?
