Coding Source - Create an XML Sitemap or data feed with Classic ASP
Using ASP Classic, we can create a Sitemap to be used with Google, Bing, and other search engines, as well as Data Feeds, to show live streaming content to your visitors.
Using this method, there are no limits to what you can accomplish, once you get started.

Example: View Live Example«

The database is structured as followed:

XMLID - AutoNumber (Primary Key)
XMLTitle - Short Text
XMLTime - Date/Time (Default value = Now() )

' Using ACCESS Database
Set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objConn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & _
Server.MapPath ("XML.mdb") & ";"
' Below, we are going to set our XML Application, and write out our records.
<% Response.ContentType="application/xml" %><?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"><%Set getXML=CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
getXML.Prepared = true
getXML.commandtext = "SELECT XMLTime, XMLID, XMLTitle FROM ShowXML"
set rsXML = getXML.execute%><%
%><%while not rsXML.eof%>
'close and free our recordset and our database connection
Set rsXML = nothing
Set objConn = nothing%></urlset>

You will notice in the code above, how we have the ending tags, nestled up against the closing of our ASP Tags.

Set objConn = nothing%></urlset>

The reasoning behind this. Is to make sure there are no spaces in the generated XML code.
If there are spaces, the page will render out an error.
Give it a test. Drop the </urlset> below, and you should get an error on the page when run.
