Here is something I put together about ASP that hopefully might help
somehow.

You and others can have access to a database hosted on the Web from any
location that has a browser with an Internet connection.

The Web database concept makes sense if you and your people want to do
work in various locations in or outside the office and still be
"plugged" in.

For example you could have employees enter timesheets or have sales reps
log their contacts. Or perhaps you'd like customers to be able to check
the status of their orders online without having to call the company.

If you want a Web database, typically what would happen is that a
database such as Access or MySQL (basically just consisting of tables)
would be put on the Web.

Then "dynamic" Web pages (actually ASP pages which include VBScript,
HTML, and/or JavaScript) would be created acting like the old desktop
database's queries, forms, and reports to access the database - all
hosted on a Web Server.

Dynamic Web pages are similar in many ways to regular HTML pages. But
they are "live" because the user can read from and write to information
in the database. An example where you can login and add, edit, or view
fictional customers and invoices is at
http://www.bullschmidt.com/login.asp

Not all Web hosts will handle dynamic Web pages but many do. The Web
hosts that can handle ASP pages usually have a Windows 2000 operating
system running an IIS Web server.

Here are a few good ASP sites:
o ASP101 Samples - http://www.asp101.com/samples
o W3Schools ASP Tutorial - http://www.w3schools.com/asp
o Microsoft VBScript Language Reference -
http://msdn.microsoft.com/scripting/.../VBScript/doc/
vbscripttoc.htm

And the following newsgroup is good:
microsoft.public.inetserver.asp.general

Or for a "quick and dirty" generic ASP open source solution to putting
databases on the Web that just requires setting up a configuration page
for each table or query and uploading the database to the Web as long as
there is an autonumber field in each table (and you'll probably also
separately want to create login capabilities), perhaps try something
like this:

example

I recommend these sites:
www.aspfaq.com
www.devguru.com (You can get help with ASP, VBScript, and ADO at this site
[among other things])
