Need help with databases and websites

By setabcl2000 ·
I am attempting to build a website for my school assignment. I have no experience and just started dealing with websites and code. I have started the website on Microsoft Publisher (it was the easiest to me). It is a small project regarding RV sales. I need to somehow add a database, something simple, that I can go back into and query a few pieces of information (Such as sort, filter who purchased what type of camper, size of family, frequency of trips, and determine most popular camper sold, etc). I have the information in an excel doc now. What is the best way to do this? Can I convert to Access and add to my page? Please explain in detail...thank you in advance.

Like the know-nothing, young bird with its beak wide open to be filled, knowing not nor caring from where the food comes.

"Armed Forces" cuts no ice with me. I was that, too.

I got cut short with the order, "Learn!"

Out of curiosity

what class is this assignment for?

Now, MS Publisher..haven't a clue about that..I wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole..however, your just trying to learn, will probably do the trick for something basic.

You can import you data from excell into Access, and in theory you should then be able to link that in and query it.

The help files for Publisher should give you info on how to link it in, and if you google it you will likely find details.

Now that the abuse is out of the way, let's start.

Since you're playing with Microsoft download <h href="http://www.microsoft.com/express/vwd/">Visual Web Developer 2008</a>, <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/express/sql/Default.aspx">SQL Server 2008</a> they're both free. There are a bunch of how-to tutorials and videos on the Microsoft web site that should get you pointed in the right direction. Hope this helps.
