This really shouldn't be in php.dev, but nevermind.
There is a VBScript to PHP compiler at http://asp2php.naken.cc/ Amazing
There is also a class library that emulates ADO at
I am the author of the library.
I am also interested in the reasons why you switched from ASP to PHP. I have
written several articles
comparing PHP to ASP (mostly in PHP's favor). I would love to hear your
opinion. See http://php.weblogs.com/php_asp_7_reasons
