Summary by Jerry Loza
If you plan to have dynamic content on your Web site, learning how to retrieve and display content from an Access database is a good place to start. The CNET Builder.com article "Grab Access data online" will show you how to accomplish this. The article will teach you to:
- Install Personal Web Server or Internet Information Services (depending on your version of Windows).
- Create a DNS connection.
- Connect to your database.
- Write ASP scripts to retrieve and format your data.
- Display your data in HTML.
And this is just the start. From here, you can expand your knowledge of ASP and explore other areas of dynamic Web page presentation.
