Hi

I have a database of addresses that I would like to give access from my web. How and what do I need to create a search for zipcodes that would then display all the addresses on that zipcode?
I have MS Frontpage 98, Office97 and using hway.com for my webpages. Just general answer for now I will go for details later, but now I need to know if I need to have a higher plan with my Provider and other stuff...

Is there a way to do it on CGI or Do I need to have it done by Database software on server? I have about 6000 addresses....

  There are several ways that you can do this.

  First, if your internet provider is running a Microsoft server, then Microsoft has built in several ways to do this. The most popular way is by ASP. This requires that the database is located on the server somewhere, ie in your account, and registered with the server via ODBC, which is really easy with Access with Office 97. Microsoft also allows this to be done through ActiveX controls as well. Though, again, the db must be on the server and registered via ODBC.

  Second, a CGI script can be written to do that as well. And, as an alternate to that, a dll. However, this may be a little harder to work out with the server, or may not, depending on the relationship you have with the provider. As I understand it, finding a server that allows CGI access is easier that finding one working with IIS, though the former has a greater possibility of compromising the server.

  I hope this helps a little. More details if you want them.

I agree with the above comment, I was in a simmilar situation a month ago.  I used database results wizzard located within Frontpage 2000 and 98 to create an ASP.  Though I needed to find an ISP that offered ASP (Active Server Page) Extentions.  To create a search form you simply add the disitred CRITERIA in the more options button in step 3 of the database result wizzard.  Then at the end of the result wizzard you tell it to add a search form.  A great resource for me while creating his was microsofts own site.  Just look there for what you need.
