Creating additional Sessions from Login page

This Tutorial shows you how to create extra Sessions from the Macromedia Login behaviour, with just a couple of lines of coding.

Whats included

3 ASP pages
1 Access 2000 database

What you need

Dreamweaver MX and above IIS or PWS
Access 2000 or above


You will need to feel comfortable creating an Access database (or your flavour of db) and working with simple hand coding of ASP pages.

The Connection string is a DSN-less, so you will need to change it to reflect your hard drive. Simply open the NewSession.asp page in the Connection folder and change the string to the path of the database on your hard drive.

Have fun, any questions, queries etc, feel free to email me via the Tutorial Contact page on the website (

Recordset Paging with Page Numbers

First I didn't write this but found it on a site that no longer exists and I wanted to put it up because many people have this question and most people answer it by telling them to buy an extension. You should not have to spend $40 in order to do this in my opinion.

Convert a Date to ISO format

This short tutorial will show you how to take any date, either in a database or passed in your page, and split it up and reassemble in the ISO format.

This can be very helpful in querying against your database, as it does not require the database to be set to your localised language and thus Date format, I have also found Access plays a lot nicer when the Date is in ISO format.
