We have spent some time learning about ADO, opening connections, creating recordsets, and navigating around between records. By now you might be asking yourself "Hey, what's the fuss about?" It's not really that much different from DAO. Well, we are going to now use ADO in the way it was intended - to send data over the Internet. That's right, we are going to create our own Active Server web pages using ADO.

Don't worry. You don't need a fancy server, your own domain name, or anything like that. In fact, all you need is the free Personal Web Server from Microsoft and a standard Internet connection from any provider. We will discuss how to get set up in a minute. But first, let's talk about ASP, what they are, and how they are used with ADO.
