Default adding counts to search results

I found this on the net but it shows that he is using one ASP page for both search and response. I need it for two pages. The first for HTML coding and the second (response page) with ASP coding. What do I need to modify?

' Declare our variables... always good practice!
Dim strURL     ' The URL of this page so the form will work
               ' no matter what this file is named.

Dim cnnSearch  ' ADO connection
Dim rstSearch  ' ADO recordset
Dim strDBPath  ' path to our Access database (*.mdb) file

Dim strSQL     ' The SQL Query we build on the fly
Dim strSearch  ' The text being looked for

' Retreive the URL of this page from Server Variables
strURL = Request.ServerVariables("URL")

' Retreive the term being searched for.  I'm doing it on
' the QS since that allows people to bookmark results.
' You could just as easily have used the form collection.
strSearch = Request.QueryString("search")
'strSearch = Replace(strSearch, "'", "''")

' Since I'm doing this all in one page I need to see if anyone
' has searched for something.  If they have we hit the DB.
' O/W I just show the search form and quit.

<p>Search our sample db by first or last name.  (% returns all)</p>
<form action="<%= strURL %>" method="get">
<input name="search" value="<%= strSearch %>" />
<input type="submit" />
<p>[Try 'am' or 'er' for an example]</p>
If strSearch <> "" Then
    ' MapPath of virtual database file path to a physical path.
    ' If you want you could hard code a physical path here.
    strDBPath = Server.MapPath("database.mdb")

    ' Create an ADO Connection to connect to the sample database.
    ' We're using OLE DB but you could just as easily use ODBC or a DSN.
    Set cnnSearch = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

    ' This line is for the Access sample database:
    'cnnSearch.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & strDBPath & ";"

    ' We're actually using SQL Server so we use this line instead:
    cnnSearch.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=;" _
        & "Initial Catalog=samples;User Id=samples;Password=password;" _
        & "Connect Timeout=15;Network Library=dbmssocn;"

    ' Build our query based on the input.
    strSQL = "SELECT last_name, first_name, sales " _
        & "FROM sample " _
        & "WHERE last_name LIKE '%" & Replace(strSearch, "'", "''") & "%' " _
        & "OR first_name LIKE '%" & Replace(strSearch, "'", "''") & "%' " _
        & "ORDER BY last_name;"

    ' Execute our query using the connection object.  It automatically
    ' creates and returns a recordset which we store in our variable.
    Set rstSearch = cnnSearch.Execute(strSQL)

    ' Display a table of the data in the recordset.  We loop through the
    ' recordset displaying the fields from the table and using MoveNext
    ' to increment to the next record.  We stop when we reach EOF.
    ' For fun I'm combining some fields and showwing you can do more then
    ' just spit out the data in the form it is in in the table.
    <table border="1">
    Do While Not rstSearch.EOF
        <td><%= rstSearch.Fields("first_name").Value %> <%= rstSearch.Fields("last_name").Value %></td>
        <td><%= rstSearch.Fields("sales").Value %></td>

    ' Close our recordset and connection and dispose of the objects
    Set rstSearch = Nothing
    Set cnnSearch = Nothing
End If

' That's all folks!  See it's really not all that hard.
