I have an ISP with Front Page extensions and OBDC capabilities.  Have an Access database catalog.  On the Web, we need to implement searchs on all fields, have the user capability to either click on the item, or select it in another way, have that item placed in an order form in Access to calculate freight, sales tax, etc.  Am NOT a programmer, but know someone who knows VB.  Would rather totally use the Access on the Web.  Possible???  I don't want to re-invent the wheel, but have looked all over and can't seem to find the answer.  Help please!  Thank you.

Entirely possible, but you'll need someone who knows SQL rather than VB - nevermind FrontPage, create "standard" IDC/HTX interfaces.  They're more flexible - and what you need to do involves a sequence of operations rather than a single one, so you'll have to get "manual" with the files)

You may also need help from your ISP to get your IDC/HTX to point to the database, but what you're describing is pretty straightforward - the "trickiest" thing is building a <FORM> in an HTX that submits to a different IDC than the one that populated its fields.  No big tragedy, though a few headaches are certain. <g>
