    Hi everyone,

    I'm hoping anyone can help me out in this ... so I was tasked to create a quiz in html that would randomise and generate 1o random questions out of 30 questions and I found https://forums.techguy.org/threads/generating-random-questions-in-javascript.446255/ that would perfectly fit my requirements. However, I have trouble trying to update the user's quiz marks into the database based on the user's ID . I've done my research and it seems like I have to work with AJAX in order to do so. I'm very new to AJAX and it would really help if someone can enlighten me in this.

    You need to:
    1: write a page to receive the post in a language that can handle db access. php, asp, java
    2: dont do this if security is an issue. adodb object - see below code 1
    3: Save it to local storage - see https://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_webstorage.asp

    var connection = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Connection") ;

    var connectionstring="Data Source=<server>;Initial Catalog=<catalog>;User ID=<user>;Password=<password>;Provider=SQLOLEDB";

    var rs = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Recordset");

    rs.Open("SELECT * FROM table", connection);
