How do I send info from received from my page to an ACCESS97 database? Well, could someone give me a start. I know no-CGI. Could someone write a script that I might be able to edit and fill my needs. Basically, 2 drop down boxes, 4 text boxes. Thanks in advance for the help>

It would need custom program or script to do that. Maybe you should make the program or ask others for making it.

Try ACX2Web as the gateway...
It's freeware...
or else pay someone $2-$3K to do it for you

OK...this should get you started...

Here's an example in C++

1st, your web server's OS will need to support ODBC.  If you have an NT based Webserver, you are good to go.  2nd, you will need to setup a 32bit "System" datasource that points to your .mdc database.  Test your ODBC access to the database with a query tool of some sort.  Now you are ready to code an ODBC application to access the data.  Here is a Dynamic SQL function (and a main() shell to call it) that generates a table with the results of the query.  It uses custom "callout" functions to make the detail and table headings of the report customizeable (such as colored text based on value, or italics and bold). Visual C++ 4.2 used to compile the code.
