Refresh Method Example (VBScript)

Important

Beginning with Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012, RDS server components are no longer included in the Windows operating system (see Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 Compatibility Cookbook for more detail). RDS client components will be removed in a future version of Windows. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature. Applications that use RDS should migrate to WCF Data Service.

The following example shows how to set the necessary parameters of RDS.DataControl at run time. The manner in which a Recordset is retrieved using the Refresh method is determined by the settings of the ExecuteOptions and FetchOptions properties. To test this example, cut and paste the following code into a normal ASP document and name it RefreshVBS.asp. Use Find to locate the file Adovbs.inc and place it in the directory you plan to use. ASP script will identify your server.
