    CDONTS - Put incremental number in subject of email

    I am using MS FrontPage and Windows XP. I am using CDONTS to email information from an online form on our Intranet to specific email addresses. We also use Exchange servers if that helps.

    Basically I just want to put a number in the subject field of the recipient (eg 0000) - which will increase in incriments of 1 every time someone submits the form.

    Many thanks in advance for any help with this.

    CDONTS Has Been Depricated!!!!!

    Hopefully you mean that you are using CDOSYS

    the two are NOT the same!! CDONTS was very buggy and a huge security risk.

    Anyway the only way to keep track of an increment like that is to

    A) either store the info in a text file and use the FileSystemObject to read the text file and update this file each time you send an email or

    B)store the number of emails sent in a database table or XML file or Excel spreadsheet and open this with ADO read and update this each time an email is sent.

    C) Store a variable inside the application object in the Global.ASA file (not a good move because if the server restarts so will your count)

    There is no other way to increment this each time a user clicks the form button becaus eas far as ASP is concerned each click of the button is totally seperate from the other clicks.
