    Question News System without Database?

    I was wondering if the below scenario was possible, and if so, could I please have some instructions/examples? Thanks

    I have a news page on a web site that now needs to be seperated in to a number of 'views' (eg. so that each user sees a different set of articles). I would like to stay away from using 20 include files!

    I know how to do this with php but this time I don't have the luxury of being in an environment I'm familiar with. I also need to do this without a database, and in the most economical way possible.

    All help is much appreciated.

    How is the data to be stored?

    An obvious way is using a flat text file to hold the data, then use a common HTML/ASP page template to retrieve and display the data.

    Your search term for today is Server.CreateObject ("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
