Default Array Problem


Does anyone have any idea how to create an array so that I can write the recordsets into the textfile in a loop. How do I declare the array such that I write only 6 recordsets from the access database into textfiles instead of 8? Meaning I opt out 2 tables to export to textfiles.

Pls help! Thanks!

I suppose you are asking about dynamic array.

While defining array dont priovide the size.
Dim arr_var()

Then in the while loop just use redim
ReDim preserve arr_var(i_count)

Where preserve is the keyword to keep the array elements as it is.
and i_count be your dynamic size.
The loop may look like this.

Dim arr_var()
Dim i_count
i_count = 1
While not rs.eof
  Redim preserve arr_var(i_count)
  arr_var(i_count)= rs(0)
  i_count = i_count + 1

Hope this will help you.:)

How can I execute that piece of code in a function and return the entire array?

I'd like to create a function that retrieves data, loads it into an array and then returns that array? How is this accomplished in ASP?

There is a very simple method.

let rst be the name of the record set used to fetch data and arr be the name of array.


will fill the array with whatever records fetched by rst. It will be a two dimensional array.The first script identifies the field and second one the record number.
