Default Info on full dynamic data display and sorting

Good Day everyone! I was wondering if anyone knew of any books or websites (I would prefer a book that I could get through Amazon or similar site) that explains not only how to display data from a SQL database on a page but also that lets you sort it, lets say, by a particular field and also by a search engine of sorts. I've gotten down the part with server behaviors where I can display data and page it with navigational arrows, now I just need a functionality where users can narrow down the search by either a search engine or by dropdown menu, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm really sorry, I overlooked this very important detail. I'm programming in classic ASP.
Thanks

I have and it's something that I"m willing to learn, but my company's website is already built in ASP and hosted on an ASP server so that pretty much leaves me an option. But I was only wondering if anyone had ever come across a great book or website where they dwell deep into data display and sorting...even if it's a PHP book (I guess I could find it's ASP counterpart)
Thanks!
