Generate Numbers at the Server End
by DevX Pro
How do I generate numbers at the server end? I have an application in which I am accessing data from an Access database and I want to define each record fetched in a separate class.

Session Abandon Does Not Stop Back Button
by DevX Pro
I have a session variable that keeps track of a user name and is set through a login page. Every page in the application first checks for the session variable and redirects to the login page if empty. I have a log out button that calls session.abandon and redirects to the home page. If the user logs out, then clicks the back button on the browser, it seems like session variables still exist. However, if the user logs out, then manually types in the address of one of the pages, it correctly redirects the user to the login page.

Using URLEncode to Pass Query String Values
by DevX Pro
I'm passing a string from one ASP template to another. The string may contain spaces so I call URLEncode, which works well as far as preventing the 400 Error for a malformed page. However, when I encode the Query String, it seems to muck up the code that gets the values from the Query String. Is there a "decode" function that I need to use?

Test for NULL Properly in a Recordset
by DevX Pro
I have a column in SQL Server created like this: "vchrFirstName varchar (50) NULL" However, this code does not produce anything, including any errors, when the record is NULL: If RS("chrFirstName") = NULL Then Response.Write("Empty") Else Response.Write(RS("vchrFirstName")+"...some extra text") End If Strangely, the statement after Else is executed and nothing is printed to the Web page, but I know the record is NULL because a CStr does not work on it as expected. Also, everything after RS("vchrFirstName") is not responsed to the client as well. How can I test for NULL properly in this case?
