I have an Access database sitting on a NT server. I do not have direct access to this server (ability to install or configure software). However, I had my hosting service provider create a Data Source Name (DNS) for this database so that it can be accessed using ODBC. I need to write a CGI script to access this database. Is there a standard way of doing this?
My first test failed because I created a script in Delphi but the BDE was not installed on the server. I'm thinking of using Visual Basic to access the database. Primarily, I don't have 1 single question, but would like to get some comments from everyone on this. What do think is the workable solution to accessing a database using a script? This doesn't necessarily mean I have to stick with an Access database...
Many thanks for those who can provide any ideas. I will award the points to the individual that sparks the correct, workable answer.
