    Problems connecting to Access 2007 database with JavaScript

    I am trying to create a form that will generate a query, send that query to a database, and display the results on a Web page. For now, the form fields don't actually contribute anything to the code, they just sit there as placeholders. What I want to do for now is this: connect the page to the database, run a hard-coded query, and have the results displayed in table form on the page. I want the database to be a .accdb (Access 2007) file that is located on the server. I have been using JavaScript to do this.

    Here is what I have so far:

    <script language="JavaScript" > 
    function getSubmit() 
    var ClassID;
    var CreditHours;
    var cn = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Connection");
    var strConn = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source = classes.accdb;Persist Security Info=False"; 
    var rs = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Recordset");
    var SQL = "SELECT 0910.ClassID, 0910.CreditHours FROM 0910"; 
    var resultSet = strConn.query(SQL);
    rs.Open(SQL, cn); 
    ClassID.value = rs(0); 
    CreditHours.value = rs(1);

            <input type="button" value="Submit" accesskey="S" tabindex="10" onclick="getSubmit()" />
    I have tried adding things like "alert("test");" etc. to the Submit button just to see if the code was working. No dice. I click on the button, and nothing happens. So I tried creating a little "document.write("Hello World!");" to see if JavaScript itself was even working, and the Hello World DID work. So obviously, something is wrong with my code.

    Help? Advice? How do I make this work?
