Thread: DB connection

    DB connection

    1. When using ASPdb, do I have to create the new DNS?
    2. When I have images (binary data) fields in my DB, does it automatically start upload file routine when updating DB? In the other words, does ASPdb support uploading of binary data?
    3. When displaying images, are they in the database, or they are just linked external files?

    Hi Alexander,

    1) You need to have either a DNS, MDB, DAT, or Recordset to use ASP-db. See
    the documentation for a complete explanation of each. When you say a "new
    DNS", I'm not sure what you mean. You can use the same DNS for many ASP-db
    programs if that's what you mean. We probably have over 100 examples on our
    site using the same NorthWind DSN.

    2) No, ASP-db does not support uploading of binary data. We suggest one of
    the many nice file upload tools that are available. Check 15seconds.com.

    3) ASP-db can display images that are inside the database (go to
    www.aspdb.com/v2 and check out example #5. It also does linked images -
    check out www.aspdb.com and click on the Live Demos link on the top green bar.
    We strongly recommend you use external images unless you have a great reason
    not to. Microsoft has told us that it will kill your server performance,
    and it begs for a data corruption error to occur - one that is very difficult
    to untangle. Use external images (jpg, gif, etc.) whenever possible.

    Thanks!
    John
