I am creating a interaction application for alton towers available through a website (using asp.net). This website is connected to a database(sql server 2000) containing infomation on different shops, rides, restaurants and facilities at the park.
I have inputted data to my database. The user should be able to do searches such as:
rides (and shops or all) available in a certain area.
rides in a certain area above a certain height rescrictions.
I'm confused. I have used SQL statements before and I know it is possible to retrieve this information from the database, but how should I go about this and how should I be storing this information so that I am able to call it from the front teir.
I have read up on views, stored procedures and triggers and I'm a bit lost. Should I be creating all the possible queries and then store them as a view (or stored procedure) I thought I would just have to write a sql statement but it seems a lot more confusing...
and what about triggers and user defined statements??
