Using Include Files

Server Side Includes (SSI) are a powerful tool for code re-use and to make site maintenance easier. On this page alone, there are 2 includes, one of which includes other files in it. This can make it much easier for the developer to maintain a consistent site. One of the most popular uses for SSIs is to create uniform headers and footers, often with menu items. On this site, I have both a standard header and a standard footer, which are referenced from one include file, called articleformat.asp.

Basic ADO/SQL Tutorial (The Nitty-Gritty)

To begin, you will need a machine on which you can test some sample scripts. The easiest way to accomplish this if you haven’t already done so is to download ASP from Microsoft and install it with PWS on your Win95 or WinNT box. There are plenty of resources available for describing how to do this, so I won’t waste any more time on it.
