    Migrating an Access DB to the Web (Access 2000)

    I'm planning to take a fairly straightforward Access DB and make it accessible via the web. I'm planning to use DataPages as a first step, though I think that SQL and ASP is where I'm going to end up.
    Two problems though <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>. I don't know SQL or ASP.
    So, I'm wondering if any other loungers out there have gone through this process, if you have any words of wisdom or on-line references for me.

    TIA

    It's not as difficult as you might think, if you don't know asp, there is a great gui tool that can help you out. Its called AspMaker 2.0 and can be downloaded at http://www.hkvstore.com/aspmaker/
    This program is amazing, it does for asp what frontpage/dreamweaver does for html.

    I highly recommend VB .dll's, in combination with ASP. Unless you are going to have a MEGA site, then there is really no reason for a SQL server back end. I can show you plenty examples of Access 97 databases, that are the backends for ASP/.dll combinations.
