FrontPage Modification

P: n/a
Greeings:

Looking for guidance in adding a feature. I would like for authorized
users to be able to log into a frontpage 2002 website that I
created/published and add laboratory results to data application most likely
to be MS Access. Is there something in existence or can a novice do
something in a tool like visual basic? Is this feature dependent on the web
hosting service? Please advise if this is not the correct place to post.
Much thanks for any guidance

Well, this really isn't the right newsgroup to post in. This group is for
general programming questions about Microsoft's ".NET development platform".

Also, Visual Basic isn't a tool, it's a programming language.

What you need is to write some programming and do some server configuration
(for security) to make something like this work. Yes, you will need to
check with your hosting provider to see if they support what you are trying
to do.

Using FrontPage 2002, you won't have access to any of Microsoft's .NET
programming paradigm. You could download and use the free Visual Web
Developer Express Edition from Microsoft, but you will need to learn about
what .NET is and make sure your web hosting provider supports it in the
current hosting plan that you have. Or, you could use the older "classic
ASP" programming model, which would still require you to learn classic ASP
and ADO.

Either way, this isn't rocket science, but it's not for novices either.
