Can someone point me in the right direction:

I want to learn how to make my DW forms append to my database file when the user submits the information. Right now I am using Access but will upgrade to mySQL or PHP soon. I just need a tutorial to learn in order to know which direction to go. Thanks

Establish an ODBC connection to the database. Create a form with the input fields and create a recordset to the input table on the database.

Under Application | Server Behaviors select "Insert Record"

There is a good section on this in Dreamweaver Help.

do this now before you learn anything to do with ASP
its harder to change when you have knowledge in one language knowing you have to start over

get into PHP now then you wont be waiting around here for an answer to your ASP questions
