Access Database-driven ASP page with embedded RSS feeds

Access Database-driven ASP page with embedded RSS feeds


I know very little about web development in general - just some basic html scripting, CSS and a bit of XML. I've inherited a public sector site that is huge, almost entirely database driven and written almost exclusively in ASP.

There are news, bulletin, events and publications pages which all key off Access databases.

I need to associate RSS feeds with these pages, so updates to the database that currently drives the ASP pages also drive the RSS feeds.

I've isolated the queries that should drive each aspect of items in the feed (<title> <description> <link> <pubDate>), but I can't get it to work.

I'm told by developers at the local University that I need to embed the RSS code into an ASP page so the queries still work, but I haven't a clue.

I've copied a database driven ASP page from our news section, and inserted the RSS code in various places, but it doesn't work...

do I start the page with:

<?xml version... or <!DOCTYPE html... or what...

or am I missing something else?

Thanks :)
