Default Chapter 15, page 648-649 (Beginning ASP 3.0)

Just thought you might want to clarify the sentence in step 10 of creating the classifieds database in "Beginning Active Server Pages 3.0", page 648.

Currently it reads:
While setting up the Bid table, highlight the Timestamp field; then, in the Default Value box insert Now():

Then we move to the screen capture on page 649, which shows what to do. There, we see Now() without the colon. I thought the colon was needed; unfortunately this caused a syntax error. Needless to say this step is somewhat confusing, especially when there is nothing following that text, except for the screen capture on the next page.

Maybe future editions could say:

While setting up the Bid table, highlight the Timestamp field; then insert Now() in the Default Values box:


This was from "Beginning Active Server Pages 3.0" August 2000 reprint.
