ASP learner scratching head

Hi All,

I am ASP beginner and seeking some help please. I am using online tutorial to learn. However been having this problem last 2 days. If I get any help, would be greatly appreciated to learner like me. I have 3 files listed codes for them below. I am creating basic addressbook which reads input from first file (addressbook_form.htm). I am using 2nd file (add_to_addressbook.asp) to post read-in data to 3rd file which is (addressbook.asp). I have gone thru each and every line of code but cannot get 'updated' addressbook.asp to work and show new entry being added. Again, any help be very helpful. please tell me what am i doing wrong here?

OK, update....I just uploaded ALL 4 files, including .mdb to my webspace and tried to run and test out. It WORKED, YES IT WORKED! So there MUST BE something wrong with my IIS? I have no clue as I said earlier I am newbee in this field so any suggestions? All I did is installed IIS from my WINDOWS XP cd and set permission on files I am workign on FULL CONTROL, under security tab from properties. Do I need to tweak anything else to test out my asp code locally? currently I am using http://localhost/......
thanks a bunch!
