I think you're going to have trouble doing this with .asp. I know it can be
done with Perl or PHP, so you might want to look into those programming
languages. MySQL won't do it automatically.

You can use the Bookmark property to set a bookmark (Bookmark: A property
a Recordset object or a form that contains a binary string identifying the
current record.) that uniquely identifies a particular record in the form's
underlying table, query, or SQL statement. Read/write Variant.

In VB6, I can read a bookmark in a variant like
varBookmark = rsName.Bookmark
Where varBookmark is a variant and rsName is a adodb recordset.

Later I can go back to the same record by
rsName.Bookmark = varBookmark

In ASP, I'm trying to come up with a better solution where there is too
data in recordset to display at once in a web page. Exactly like when you
search on Yahoo and at bottom its gives links like: Next, Next 10 and also
page links like 1,2,3.... 14.

If you know any other or better way for doing this, please let me know.
