    Yup, done it quite often, no problems what so ever. What are you really asking though?

    Feel free to PM me any specific questions.

    Reason

    the reason I was thinking of ASP.Net is because I was thinking of using it as a front end instead of access xp. But I need to learn how to use it first. Anyone know any good books or any good software packages to get me started??? Advice is always nice too

    thank you

    well it really depends in how you want to write it. Do you want to use inline code, code behind or an application? Three very different approaches.... all with different pros and cons.

    Do you know html well enough to be up to the job?

    Have you written any asp or vb before?

    Your idea is perfectly workable, but to point you in the right direct means you really need to have a base understanding of how asp.Net works in the first place.

    You might want to start with asp then (as oposed to asp.net) or php just to get the ideas down before leaping into the gapping chasm of .Net.

    Personally, I would not recommend classic asp. What is your development background - what languages have you programmed in - c, c++, Java, vb ... ?
    If you do not have SQL Server Books Online (BOL) installed - please do so. The majority of questions asked in the SQL Server forum could be eliminated if people had access to bol. BOL

    Okie, my reasons for recommending standard asp are as follows.

    1. The language is a piece of cake to learn.
    2. Because the language is easy you can concentrate on the important things like the theorys and practises behind write web applications.
    3. Because you can learn the langauge quickly and thus pick up the concepts faster you can soon decide if a web app is really what you want.
    4. If you know a C based language then vb is childs play.
    5. If you don't know a C based language then you should be able to pick up vb faster then other languages.
    6. The is really only one style for writting classic asp (ignoring com object development) instead of the 3+ for writing asp.

    Reasons for not using standard asp.

    1. Out dated.
    2. Only works with Microsoft.

    ... others?
