ASP Time Out Issues Contd.

    Hi Guys

    Can I just ask if ASP/ADO/OLEDB/Tab-delimited performance can be improved if
    I have a separate ASP page for each tab-delimited file rather than just 1
    ASP page that parses each.

    Can I also ask if tab-delimited files perform worse than CSV files.

    For those who haven't read previous posts, I had a site that was working
    great with this method and then all of a sudden I keep getting horrendous
    time out problems. See the site at http://www.bardwells.co.uk.

    The method of the client editing their lists in Excel, saving them to
    tab-delims and then uploading them was working great and I don't want to
    change it to be honest. I know the way is to have a DB, but this was
    working fine until either my multiple ASP pages to 1 page change or
    FastHosts recent 'upgrade' caused this problem.

    Any feedback you would be very much appreciated.

    Regards

    Changing to a DB will be inevitable. Do it.

    I don't see that you'd notice any difference between tab-delimited and
    comma-delimited since a tab is just another character. If the users are
    uploading multiple files, perhaps they can just upload one at a time.

    But, seriously, you're just putting off what you will have to do eventually.
    Maybe when you start losing clients, you'll bite the bullet and convert your
    site. I'm not saying this to be cocky or anything. It's all for the good
    of your site.
