its pulling from my advancedtrouble table in my test database. I had the top 10 * in yesterday by mistake when I posted. It dose not make any noticeable impact though..For the term it should be referencing my database and changing on input of a character. only thing I am confused with is they haveterm = Replace( Trim(Request("word")), "'", "''" )SQL = "select top 10 * mproblem from DBtable where mproblem like '%" & term & "%'"---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------shouldn't it be something more likeSQL= "select mproblem from DBtable where mproblem like '% %' or mproblem like '"+ term +"'"ORSQL = " select mproblem from DBtable where mproblem like '"% & term & %"'Both of these fail if used

Wait now I was able to make it search. I changedterm = Replace( Trim(Request("word")), "'", "''" )TOterm = Replace( Trim(Request("q")), "'", "''" )Since javascript is passing the variable q from index.html to livesearch.asp.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------My only problem is now is that I have to figure out how to get each result to display on its own line, right now they are all one line.ex.NOWresult1 result2 result3 result4What I wantresult 1result 2result 3result 4

You can send parameters to the RecordSet.getString method to tell it how to format the output, or you can loop through the recordset and format things yourself.
