To retrieve data from data base in ASP, perform the following steps:
open a connection to a database. 2. create a record set, which provides access
to the data fields of each record. 3. retrieve data from the fields of the
recordset. 4. close the recordset and the connection.

data from the northwide database. The script retrieves al product names and their
prices from the products table, in order by product names, and writes them to
