ASP Classic Edit Record (AddNew, Update, Delete)
Posted 3/1/2010 on 3/1/2010
ASP Classic Code Snippet:


Languages Focus: Edit Record

This common syntax name documents editing a record as a whole: add/insert, edit, post data, and delete.

ASP Classic Edit Record

In ASP, using ADO, you use RecordSet.AddNew to add a new record, Recordset.Update to post the record, and RecordSet.Delete to delete it. To edit a record, you open the RecordSet using an editable cursor.

Syntax Example:

The following code snippet adds a record to a given editable RecordSet with FullName and Created fields:

objRS.Fields("FullName") = "Barack Obama"
objRS.Fields("Created")  = Now

Delete() Method Notes

  • After deleting a record, the deleted record remains current until you move to a different record.
  • If you are in batch update mode the deletion happens when you call the UpdateBatch method.
  • To use this method assure that the Recordset object allows record deletion.
