Very new to dreamweaver and before I decide that it will by tool of choice I need to know how it connects to databases, specifically ACCESS databases.

What extra tools are required ?

I currently have Dreamweaver 4 but I see alot of Dreamweaver ULTRADEV books out there.. What is ULTRADEV ?

Hi John,

UltraDev is a newer release of Dreamweaver that the one that you have got. It's basically the same though so don't worry about it too much.

You don't need any extra tools to connect Dreamweaver to an Access database - as long as they are both on a server on the web you should be ok. You'll probably need to set-up a testing server on your own PC though - 'Inetpub'.

I think you've got a fair bit of reading to do - I recently bought 'ASP Web Develoment with Dreamweaver MX 2004' which has been quite useful and you might like to try and find yourself a similar book.

Cheers - Shady.
