    Hi.

    I have a MS Access database called TelephoneList, that has a table called Characters.Now, I have a webpage with a dropdownlistbox preloaded with characters(A-Z).When I select a character, I want the page to extract values from the page using that character to filter the values.(i.e. Select select name, surname from Character where FilterByChar = Dropdownlist.SelectedItem).

    First.How do I establish a connection, command, and datareader to allow me to do this.

    A sample code would be very nice thank you.

    My current one is****
    Code:
    <%
    set conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    conn.Provider="Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0"
    conn.Open(Server.Mappath("/db/TelephoneList.mdb"))
    set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")
    sql="SELECT Name, Surname, Department, Xtension, [Other Extension] FROM Characters where Xtension = "****Dont knw how to do the where statement
    rs.Open sql, conn
    %>
    
    <table border="1" width="100%">
    <tr>
    <%for each x in rs.Fields
        response.write("<th>" & x.name & "</th>")
    next%>
    </tr>
    <%do until rs.EOF%>
        <tr>
        <%for each x in rs.Fields%>
           <td><%Response.Write(x.value)%></td>
        <%next
        rs.MoveNext%>
        </tr>
    <%loop
    rs.close
    conn.close
    %>
