I am using php 4 because of my host and find the tutorials by davidj using php very easy to understand. Now with Dreamweaver when you use the Insert Record wizard etc. you get all the extra blah blah. Do you need it for Dreamweaver to work or can you go ahead and remove a lot of it and do it the way the tutorial shows. By the way I am using Dreamweaver mx 2004 7.1, so I am not sure if there is a lot of difference to Dreamweaver 8.

Thanks a bunch

do you have a geordie translator nanny?

with answer to your question..

If you choose to hand code or at least follow the tuts then dreamweaver turns into a big notepad. This means you wont be able to see the recordsets from inside the applications panel and you wount be able to use wizards or drag values from panels which rely on a valid DW recordset.

Honestly in my opinion you are better off with out them
