hi everybody,
i m doing project in which i need to get the values from one software written in VB and use in the asp.
Is it possible to fetch the values from the ASP.
many thanks
anju

What exactly do you mean? Fetch the values via form, querystring, xml, database, or sessions? Be more specific.

Form: Request.Form("inputname")
Querystring: Request.QueryString("querystringname")
XML: Requires much more
Database: (after connecting) rs("columnname") or rs.fields("columnname") if looped.
Session: strGetValue = Session("sessionname")

Be more specific please

Oh, and if you mean from asp.net with vb, you can declare a string with lets say.. strGetValue

after declaring and setting strings/connections, run an scalar method to get the value you wish. It only holds the first occurance of the sql.

cmdSelect = New SqlCommand( "SELECT UserName FROM Users WHERE UserID=@Userid", conn )
cmdSelect.Parameters.AddWithValue( "@Userid", strUserID )
strGetValue = cmdSelect.ExecuteScalar()

This would retrieve the users UserName where his userid equals strUserID.

Otherwise use the Reader method and bind it to a control like Repeater/Datalist/grid.
