To add to this suggestion, I'll suggest a trick I use with CF that will
probably work with ASP.  Add an insert trigger to the table that looks
something like this:

CREATE TRIGGER triggername ON table
AS SELECT @@identity AS id

Then, in theory, you should be able to do something like this:

strSQL = "INSERT INTO table (name) VALUES ('myname')"
oRS = oConn.Execute(strSQL)
Response.Write "The inserted id is " & oRS("id")

Possible gotcha:  if you are doing a lot of inserts into the table,
performance might be slightly compromised.  But, if you do a lot of inserts,
I'm sure you'll figure out a way to disable the insert trigger first.  :-)
