Hello all hope you had a great week. I am needing assistance with Dreamweaver populating an Access database. Please know that I have read thru the MX 2004 Bible, I have looked thru this forum and done many searches on Google and still can not figure this out.

I would like to create a form that will allow me to have a couple of pulled down menus that are getting there info from a database. I think I have that correct at this time my problem is that I would also like to have a couple of text boxes i.e.: Name and Suggestions boxes that will populate a tables in an Access database. Has anyone seen any tutorials on line or would be willing to share there DW Jedi skills with me?

I am using Dreamweaver MX 2004, MS Access, IIS, and the page is .asp

Thank for you time.

you need to create a recordset for your dropdowns

Application panel > bindings > recordset (query)

(advanced mode)

give your recordset a name

choose a connection

write some SQL [ select * from [table name] where [field1 = 'variable'] and [field2 = 'variable']

hit the test button

if you get results you are on the right path

if you get this far or have already done this bit please post back

I was able to get this far for the pull downs, the problem I am having is the text boxes. Any ideas would be great. Thank you

if you already have a dynamic dropdown working then the rest should be easy

just add an update database page to your site. Its a wizard and will guide you as you make your choices

I think its located in Server Behaviours
