Access beginner User..Need help setting upa database

P: n/a
I need help setting up a database which includes a list of about 1200
urls. Anyone who accesses the database should be able to input wheather
the url is good or bad. I want to share the databse over a network. If
possbile I would like a web page view with Url displayed at the top of
the page, the actual URL content displayed in the middle, and the
option to input weather or not the URL is good or Bad. I would
appreciate it if someone can help set this up

I don't know about others in this newsgroup, but my own response to your
post is that at this level of description you're not exactly asking for help
with a problem, which is what everyone here is happy to offer. You're more
like posting a system requirement and asking if someone will do your design
work for you. Generally you have to pay to get that kind of work done for
you.

I may be way off on this, but I think you'll have a better chance of getting
help if you start trying to put your application together, and then ask very
specific questions if you run into difficulty with a particular develpment
task.

Broadly, you're going to need a table to hold the URLs. Use an autonumber
primary key. Create a second table to hold the votes for good or bad. ( I
assume you want to track each user's input individually.)

Are you trying to do a web interface for your app, or an Access interface?

Are you a web developer? Do you already create web interfaces that retrieve
data from Access or SQL Server or Oracle or some database product?

Look in Access help for WebBrowser control. That might help.

Here's another
Export a table, query, form, or report to HTML format

You can use Microsoft Access 97 to create a World Wide Web application.
For example, you can create a corporate home page, an online magazine or
newsletter, a registration system for a trade show, or an online product
catalog. To create this Web application, you output objects to HTML
format or use the Publish to the Web Wizard.
