    Changing the contents due to external event


    Hi, I have an intranet small application written in classic ASP.
    I have a second client/server application also.
    How can I filter the data that showed in the asp when the criteria is determined in the second application?
    How the asp application can know when the criteria that resides in the second application is determined to apply them automatically in a search form and submit the form?
    Now the user himself puts the criteria into the asp's form application but this is very time consuming process and error prone.

    Thanks

    I have no idea what you're asking, but it sounds like you need to research some programable "connection" between asp and your other app. Generally you'd write some kind of COM object that can be instantiated in asp and the other app that acts as a bridge, or maybe you can use a file in the filesytem to connect the two apps.
