The following is one example of using Minisoft’s ODBC driver to access HP e3000 Image files from any web browser. This example uses ADO objects to access the driver. The example consists of two files. The first is a form used to request data. The second is the ASP code used to retrieve data.

The newasp.html file:

<html>
<head>
<title>Query Form</title>
</head>

<body>

<form action=”MSDB_1.ASP” method=”GET”>
<p><select name=”Param” size=”1″>
<option selected value=”CUSTOMER_NUMBER”>Contact Number</option>
<option value=”CONTACT_NUMBER”>Contact Number</option>
<option value=”LAST_NAME”>Last Name</option>
<option value=”FIRST_NAME”>First Name</option>
</select></p>
<p><input type=”text” size=”20″ name=”Data”></p>
<p><input type=”submit” value=”Button”></p>
</form>

</body>
