Beginning ASP3.0 chapter 13 - large record set cau
Working my way through Wrox Beginning ASP 3.0 to enable review of legacy code. Chapter 13 Using Recordsets. Download a file from wrox site movies2000.mdb and create pages to extract recordsets. Ran into some problems so eventually I downloaded the asp files from the wrox site these pages had the same problems. Basically, when pulling a recordset of movies, and directors which totals 330 rows, the code Moving.ASP returns masses of largely unitelligible jibberish, though it does appear to reading something from ASP, like connection strings etc. If I reduce the recordset to 295 (from 330) eveything works fine, (wrox code and mine). I had a similar problem latterwith the StaffTable.asp where the record set was 1000+ a quick delete (to approx 295 records) and everything works fine. So it does appear to be a problem with the size of the recordset for either IIS, ASP or the browser. My OS is Windows2000 Professional(IIS5), 512M Ram, IE6, . My Access is Access 2000 but the Wrox file is older than this probably Access97. I didn't convert it but I did open the files for a look see. The tables seem intact.
Can't find anything on the web so it must be a setting on my machine. Perhaps I am the only person trying to use ASP with IE6 :) . Want to use Access as a demonstration on a laptop for much larger Web based system using MSSQL so want to see what the limitations are.
