ASP Versus NET Question

My outsourced database vendor has told me that I must reconfigure my current Sql DB from .ASP to .NET in order to automate some of my clinet's reporting requirements. This sounds more like a preference than a neccessity. I would like to hear some other professional opinions on this.

Thank you,

What is being reconfigured? A database doesnt need any specific settings changed to have any particular access (.asp, .aspx, .adp, mdb, .xls, etc) all only depend on the right connector - ODBC, DataSource settings etc configured to connect to the server and then the SQL database then needs its security set so that it will allow access. This is security based, not technology based though ...

+1. Can you give more details of what they mean by 'reconfigure'? SQL Server doesn't need reconfiguring to support ASP and .Net. Our databases support both without any special work being done to them.
