Hi all, I have an ASP system that works great and nice and quickly when retreiving stuff from SQL. Problem is... when I added the connection to sage" it really slows down. After speaking with Sage and other people I know this can't really be speeded up too much.

My question then is...

Can i get the page to load as before and then fire off, and display something like "Waiting for Sage data..." on the page and then it to appear. I know that this will probably need some javascript but didn't know where to start!!!

I think this may be possible as when you goto PCworld.co.uk and you select a product the whole page loads and you can view the product etc. and in the background it checks stock status and then displays it!

Any ideas??? Thanks in advance!
