    Hey everyone, and Happy New Year.

    Is there a way, using asp sript, or maybe something else...

    to take a 32 digit number submitted by a form, and search through a txt file
    that resides on the server.
    I want to be able to take someone's guid , and run it through a background
    check (the txt file), and let that user know within seconds if it is clean
    or not.

    or let me know if i need to post in another forum.

    I would enter the data from the txt file into a db, but it gets updated
    everyday, and right now there are over 60,000 on the ban list (on the txt
    file)

    any advise?
