View Full Version : Practising Return Email

11-02-2005, 05:38 AM
I'm wanting to make some small practise websites that can send a form page to a Access Database.

umm silly question, buts wheres best to learn how to connect the DB with the form.

Ive only got a couple of fields and a drop down menu in the DB.
eg: LastName. FirstName. EmailAddress. Country. (dropdown menu) postcode.

good examples or good tuts anywhere please.
Cheers All.

do you have ASP installed and a web server

hmm another problem - neither

i am about to buy some server space soon - so that problem tbf!

just curious about how the form speaks (connects) to the database.

any small examples u kno of i can practise with.

----- or can take a diff approach

how to make a simple user blog.
EG- anyone can go to a page (no need to login) and submit a text post; Name, Msg conent:
admin can alter if desired.
Is my q's too confusing ?

For practicing you use frontpage to send results to access database
But this also uses ASP basically but it performs database creation and DB connector automatically.

You can learn this here

please dont use frontpage ...
there are better apps like Errr.... DREAMWEAVER :D

plus if you have any probs with frontpage you will have to join a frontpage forum! :(

i am a php man myself and would be able to help with this..

forum post on WAMP ('http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=1398')

if you want to use ASP then there is plenty of people on here to help
