Sorry for the stupid question.

P: n/a
I am creating my first website and need some help desperatley. I have
choosen to use Front Page XP for this simple Intranet project. All I am
trying to do is:

1. Collect childrens names for a Cartwheel-a-thon on a registration page
2. Create a report showing that a specific child has won in a specific
category.

I have accomplished the first part. I can see the data being collected in
the _private folder, but i cannot figure out how to display the data via a
web page.

any help would be very much appreciated. i am trying to complete this for my
daughters gymnastics team and have just run into this major block.

you can email me at wi********@hotmail.com.

thank you,
john

that simple choice may yet prove to be your biggest mistake.

I have fp/extensions on my servers (available on demand) but no practical
experience. how would they be used to collect and store data?

It was only a guess. FP extensions create folders with underscore
names.

Well, it's been years since I played with them, and then only briefly.
If I remember rightly, they offer 'easy' set-up of database-like
functions such as discussion boards, catalogues and the like.

But mebbe my guess is wrong.

You're likely better off to look into the microsoft.public.frontpage.*
newsgroups. You'll probably find people with more experience with frontpage
than those in this group. We're more of a DIY group. :)
