MS Access database online via website

P: 36
Hi,
I'm trying to help another student in our class to host an Access Database on line for a school project.

1) I tried so with ODBC- DSN (setting this up)

2) Read tutorials and guides on IIS (Inetpup...wwwroot)

3) Also on Data Access pages, Dreamweaver, Asp/Asp.net (all of which I'm new too)

4) Other methods.

5) From case studies, research and other related articles and even on the forum I've realized that perhaps the database choice is not as robust as others, however, this is in the project's proposal.

Some things I'm still unclear and uncertain about, these are:-

1) If I build HTML pages, how do I transfer the fields of the table unto that page?

2) With the Dreamweaver and the ODBC>> DSN connection, the connection is tested as successful but how do I begin to create the forms to reflect the tables/queries of the database I'm building.

3) I did the IIS method with the data pages, but this works only on the host PC

4) I'm looking for a solution ( I don't have a clue as to what sort of Solution I should now request!)

Probably the idea of linking a website to the database sounded really interesting when this project was chosen, I've since realized the "trials" of the choice.

Any assistance rendered would be appreciated.
Thanks Again.

Thank you very much, it was very informative, I've tried it before (ADezii's) but somehow I got stuck. I will look at it all over again. Many thanks for the recommendation!

You've posted all these questions in the Access forum, but they are not all Access related. You can't post the same thread elsewhere, but you may find you get more help if you post a simple thread, including just a link to this one, in the forums relevant to the different parts of this thread.
