VP-ASP's current database support is great :

* MS-Access
* SQL Server

But the one missing link is Oracle.

It would be great to see a version of VP-ASP for Oracle.

Then you'd have all the bases covered, in terms of databases.

That would be cool.. VP-ASP for Oracle. I have integrated VP-ASP in Prgress Database. But its a pain becucase the drivers for the progress database is pain in the wrong place and sometime its very slow. I am thinking about to migrate to or get a copy into SQL and go with.
But, VP-ASP for Oracle would be cool idea and its not hard to implement either.

Okay of course you would need the Oracle SQLNET Client on the host machine, the TNS names configured and you must KNOW the version of the ODBC driver loaded on the host machine

But simply change the ProcessSqlServer connection string in shop$db.asp

Sub ProcessSqlServer(connection)

/* For the current Oracle ODBC Driver from Microsoft */
oConn.Open "Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};" & _
"Server=OracleServer.world;" & _
"Uid=myUsername;" & _

/* ODBC Driver for Oracle - from Oracle */
oConn.Open "Driver={Oracle ODBC Driver};" & _
"Dbq=myDBName;" & _
"Uid=myUsername;" & _

Then select SQL as you database type in the shop$config.asp depending on the hosting company you may want to use a DSN Name.
