View as plain text  
This should be an FAQ as it is asked at least once a week.

Here is a Javascript example:
ConnectionString1a = "Driver=MySQL;Server=kjmnt2;UID=cjones;PWD=nikeeo;OPTION=16386;"
conn1 = Server.CreateObject('ADODB.Connection');
conn1.Open( ConnectionString1a );
conn1.Execute( "USE Buildings" );
sql = "SELECT DISTINCT bldgtype, tpl FROM projects ORDER BY bldgtype";
rs1 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset");
rs1.Open( sql, conn1);
var i = 0;
while( !rs1.EOF )
         bldg = rs1('bldgtype');
         tpl = rs1('tpl');
         Response.Write( "<h1>" + bldg + "&nbsp;" + tpl + "</h1>" );
