Access and web pages

P: n/a
Friends, I have quite a few years experience in database development
with Access and would like to publish some of my programs using html
web pages. My databases are growing and was thinking of storing them
on a server and connecting to the data using web pages.

I have read about some programs that allow to use access as a web
database but would like to learn more. I was reading about asp.net.

Do you think it's the best solution or do you recommend some other
easy way I can start.

Thanks.

"best" is a relative term, I wanna replace my Lexus and go into space,
best option ATM is a space shuttle, it'll get you there but not the same
comfort level, e.g. a Lexus won't subject you to 7G+ and shake your
fillings out.

The most current way from MS is asp.net although many sites still use
asp 3.0, which you may find a little less complex.

Learning ASP.NET is well worth the effort but it *will* be an effort
compared to VBA or ASP.

I chose C# as web development also requires a mastery of JavaScript
and both languages are nearly identical.

I use JavaScript on the front end of my ASP pages and yes it's a lot
like C [1] as I remember, from what I've seen of asp.net I don't see
where js would be needed, it all seems to be vbscript (or c#) and
everything gets done server side.

[1] That's the real C language I used to use, the one that creates small
tight fast executables, not the bloaty C++ that creates slow,
cumbersome, gargantuan executables.
