How do I create Access DB driven HTML

by BebeZed In reply to How do I create Access DB ...

One possible solution is to build the Access database and any forms you may need to work with the database and save everything as Active Server Pages. This, however, isn't real efficient - Access just is not terribly scalable, and the code generatedis not terribly efficient either. However, it will do in very low-traffic situations where you are unlikely to have many concurrent users.

Or, you may choose to actually learn to build ASP/Access applications. At their most basic levels, they're fairly easy to do - I had my first simple database app up in just a couple of days with the help of various ASP websites.

A few resources:
http://www.web-savant.com/users/kathi/asp - Beginner-level ASP/Access tutorial, other ASP info.

http://www.learnasp.com - Just about everything you'd ever need to know about ASP, including creating database applications, optimization, etc.

http://www.4guysfromrolla.com - Tons of useful ASP information.

Hope this helps!

Two major products on the market for database driven web development
1. Macromedia Drumbeat
2. Macromedia Ultradev(upgrade to Drumbeat)
These products allow you to build database driven(any ODBC database ie. (Access, SQL Server, etc.) with little or not ASP coding. Ultradev allows you to develope in ASP, JSP, Cold Fusion.

Drumbeat is much more extensive in its preloaded scripts, but Ultradev is a much better web design tool but still has built in scripts to do database, cookies, sessionvariables, logic, etc. It is built on Dreamweaver.

Check out the forums at Macromedia to learn more.

I am not plugging these products, just using them.
Good Luck

I think that better will transfer all your MS Access databases to MS SQL Server, because it's will work faster and stable !
ASP with MS SQL is better solution for you.

As addition to all was sad:
1. FrontPage 2000 - look at it. It has some automatic fetures to do the trick.
2. http://www.asp101.com has tonns of information, which can help.
