hello

im preparing a chemical database where i need to store chemical structures. ASP as front end i want that when the user draw a structure(user will manually draw the structure) in frontend there should be a search in the database for similar structures and all the similar structures should be displayed.

please help me
i want to know whether this is possible and if yes what format should i store the pictures in the database.....do i need some editor for the same???????in the front end i think i'll need JMol or similar program to be present......

plz help me its important.....

Do you mean drawing the actual Chemical Bonds between Components or the Molecular Formulas as in H2SO4?

not only bonds drawing full structures. There are s/w which help users to draw chemical structures. now the database im creating takes the already drawn structure(ie.,user will copy paste the structure) in the ASP frontend and it should be compared to all the dtucture in the database and the similar once should be displayed.......

i want to know if it is possible using ASP and Access.......how do i store these stuctures???
thanks

  1. Would it be possible to provide a visual representation of a typical structure?
  2. What are the specifc criteria which would make chemical structures 'similar'?

i guess it should it be possible to provide a visual representation of a typical structure. at least this is what i want. and for criteria number of compounds, number of carbons or number of rings(benzene rings, which is a pentagon or a hexagon etc) present can be taken into account.
let me show you an example plz visit this site http://129.43.27.140/ncidb2/
and click on 'Editor' on the tab. here you will find a paint pad where you can draw a structure........and then Query it you will get all the structures that are similar to your drawn structure.......i want to make something similar to this database query........
thanks

To the best of my knowledge, nothing similiar to this could be implemented within Access, and if it could, it would be well beyond my capabilities.

does that mean only way to save image in access is OLE...... but plz tell me whether this saves a link to the picture of the whole picture as it is and whether i can retrive the structures as it is (i mean the whole image) in my ASP page
thank you
