    This may have been asked before but I couldn't find it. I'm not
    really an asp guy but I'm fumbling my way around. I don't have problems
    creating connections, recordsets etc. But the in's and out's of asp I
    don't really know. So.... Let's say I have access to data. Based on
    which links (basically view, edit, new) I want a page to build in a
    manner reflecting the link that was chosen. That is, if view is chosen
    just show associated data, if edit is chosen, add to data, etc. It
    seems like maybe the request object could help me out with this but I'm
    not sure how.

  2. Well, staying outside of the ASP.Net realm, you basically just have to write
    your page according to your needs. There's nothing built in that will
    create forms for you or interpret a querystring of "edit=1" to display data
    in a different way.

    Yip Ray is write. If it was that simple then an moron could simple
    built a complete website by pressing 3 buttons. You could create one
    asp page to do all this depending on the paramters you send it, but if
    you are just starting out I would use a separate page for each function.
