How to create a "Session ID" from a newly inserted record... by TonyU
Posted: 28 Jan 03

Here's a way to create a Session ID from a newly inserted record from a database.

'Immediatelly after your insert statement be sure to comment out the following statements:
  • ' MM_editCmd.ActiveConnection.Close
  • 'Response.Redirect(MM_editRedirectUrl)

as shown below and adding the script in blue

  MM_editQuery = "insert into " & MM_editTable & " (" & MM_tableValues & ") values (" & MM_dbValues & ")"

  If (Not MM_abortEdit) Then
' execute the insert
    Set MM_editCmd = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
    MM_editCmd.ActiveConnection = MM_editConnection
    MM_editCmd.CommandText = MM_editQuery
' MM_editCmd.ActiveConnection.Close

    If (MM_editRedirectUrl <> "") Then
    End If
  End If

End If
If (CStr(Request("MM_insert")) <> "") Then
set TonyRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
TonyRS.ActiveConnection = MM_editCmd.ActiveConnection
TonyRS.Source = "SELECT max(id) as MaxID FROM YOUR_TABLE"
TonyRS.CursorType = 0
TonyRS.CursorLocation = 2
TonyRS.LockType = 3
end if


As you can see, I'm selecting the MAX (id) from the database and creating a session("NewID") that you can call from anywhere you need to.

I hope this faq helps you.
