With pleasure

ASP is a scripting format which is mainly used for generating database
driven pages.

SQL is a database query language which actually forms the link between ASP
and the Database and is platform independant.

Consider

<%
SQL = "SELECT * FROM DatabaseTable"

RS(DatabaseField1)
%>

Where SQL = "SELECT * FROM DatabaseTable" is the SQL code which queries the
database, telling it to retrieve everything from a database table called
DatabaseTable.

And RS(DatabaseField1) is ASP code which writes the value of DatabaseField1
in the current location in the HTML.

Subject: FLASH: SQL/ASP?


I am reading questions that seem to equate SQL and ASP. Is SQL one form
of ASP?

I thought ASP was a WIN NT only dynamic database query and page
generating system.

I thought SQL was for Unix...


Can someone enlighten me?

Thanks
