About the Author
David Sussman is a hacker in the traditional sense of the word. That’s someone who likes playing with code and working out how things work, which is why he spends much of his life working with beta software. Luckily, this coincides with writing about new technologies, giving him an output for his poor English and grammar. He lives in a small village in the Oxfordshire countryside. Like many programmers everywhere, he has an expensive hi-fi, a big TV, and no life. You can contact Dave through his own company, ipona Limited: email@example.com.
Alex Homer is a computer geek and Web developer with a passion for ASP.NET. Although he has to spend some time doing real work (a bit of consultancy and training, and the occasional conference session), most of his days are absorbed in playing with the latest Microsoft Web technology and then writing about it. Living in the picturesque wilderness of the Derbyshire Dales in England, he is well away from the demands of the real world—with only an Internet connection to maintain some distant representation of normality. But, hey, what else could you want from life? You can contact Alex through his own software company, Stonebroom Limited: firstname.lastname@example.org.

ie. They ask you to select a field from the table, but the field does not exist. The stored procedure does not include it.
You would have to know how to write SQL to correct this.
If interested, you can read my detailed review of this book in the ASP.NET pro magazine.
This is the general approach--a little bit of theory followed by some hands on examples as they take you through the process of building a simple ecommerce site.
The examples are clear and illustrate the points they are trying to make with just enough screen shots to give you a familiarity with the tools but not so many that there's no space left for explanation.
It is usefully indexed which makes topics easy to find. I have since bought many more advanced books of 400+ pages but I still find myself picking up this book for a quick refresher or to lookup a practical detail.
A quick read covering a broad range of topics and remarkably thorough for an introductory book.
ASP used to stand for Active Server Pages (I'm not so sure that now it's just the three letters) which means that a base page is designed and then data for the page is brought out of a database. This means that there are two aspects of doing a web site: the basic design of the page from an artistic sense, and the design of the underlying data structure that comes from the database.
This book is an excellect tutorial for the beginner. It covers both the design of the page and the underlying database. It further uses uses software that is free from Microsoft. The software is included on a CD that is supplied with the book. But you may want to check the Microsoft web site to see if a later version is available.
