You won't be able to do that in any modern browser, and even with older browsers you'll need to disable the security of the browser. Javascript is not suitable for accessing databases.

What is the issue here?
It's not recommended to use plain javascript to access databases considering security issues.
Still if you have reason to do so, please share the issue you are facing so that we'll try to guide you further.

1) ActiveXObject("ADODB.Recordset") is generally unavailable (certainly on all of my systems) - and 'spotty' availability makes it useless.

2) This will teach you how: PHP 5 Tutorial[^] PHP is a very widely available server-side language.

inside the tutorial they talk about accessing MySQL - there are plug-in drivers available from Microsoft for giving php access to SQL. Download Microsoft Drivers for PHP for SQL Server from Official Microsoft Download Center[^]

You'll notice that php isn't a whole lot different than javascript - at least in that it's follows C syntax, and if you've ever learned 'C' then you know a lot of it's library, already.
