Searchable product images + prices database?

Searchable product images + prices database?

What system should I use to put a database on the WEB
which shows images and allows searches, including
searches within given price ranges for products?

There will be product images too, thumbnails and
larger images?

All the data will be on a single server, on the same
server the main site WEB pages.

Presumably I create the WEB pages on the fly from the
results of database query?

The server will be Windows, and I'd prefer to use
Dreamweaver.

All pointers welcome.

I'm sorry, but I can't give you any information about dreamweaver.

What kind of database will you have on the website? A Jet database (often
called an 'Access' database) may not be a good choice.

There are several ways you can access data in a database, and it can be done
from a number of languages: .asp pages using vbscript, javascript, VB, or
Java, HTML pages using various scripting languages, some of which require a
separate server. You can do this in conjunction with web page design using
Dreamweaver or a number of other design software tools. But this isn't the
place to get details on website design and implementation -- you need a
newsgroup devoted to that subject.

Thanks Larry. I aske here because my customer already
has an Access database and it would be easier to use
that as a starting point...

Jet is a perfectly acceptable database for a website with "modest" traffic
using the database. I say "Jet" because that is the database engine and the
database you'll use on your website will contain only the tables and
relationships (unless you use Data Access Pages, but they are limited to a
Windows web server and to users who have a relatively current version of
Internet Explorer -- in which case you can generate the pages with Access).

A Jet database can only run on a Windows server, as you might guess, but can
be accessed via any of several languages (as I mentioned), so still, you
need to pursue this in a web-oriented newsgroup.

This one's database-oriented, but not web-oriented.
