Move Method Example (VBScript)

This example uses the Move method to position the record pointer, based on user input.

Use the following example in an Active Server Page (ASP). To view this fully functional example, you must either have the data source AdvWorks.mdb (installed with the SDK) located at C:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK\Samples\DataAccess\Rds\RDSTest\advworks.mdb or edit the path in the example code to reflect the actual location of this file. This is a Microsoft Access database file.

Use Find to locate the file and place it in the directory you plan to use. Cut and paste the following code to Notepad or another text editor, and save it as MoveVBS.asp. You can view the result in any browser.

Try entering a letter or noninteger to see the error handling work.
