Accessing ACCESS Database

1) How do I make a link that can extract data from ACCESS database and view it in other frame ?  If possible the steps taken is using ASP and if not then use CGi or Javascript.  For example: Link A will extract all name that start with A from the database

2) Do I need to install JDBC or ODBC kind of stuff ?

Thanks

using ASP:

1. make an ODBC connection to the database, using ODBC32 in the control panel. Remember the name you gave it.

2. in your asp make a connection to the database using this code:
<%
Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Conn.ConnectionTimeout = 15
Conn.CommandTimeout = 30
Conn.Open "DSN=TheNameYouGaveIt"
%>

3. Make a recordset with this code:

<%
strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Table"
Set RS = Conn.Execute(strSQL)
%>

You can strSQL is the SQL statement that you want, you can use any SQL statements that are valid to Access.


4. Display the data with a loop:

<%
Do While Not RS.EOF
 Response.write RS("Fieldname1") & " "
 Response.write RS("Fieldname2") & " "





 Response.write "<p><hr><p>"
RS.MoveNext
Loop
%>

I have try the above statement given.... but on the SQL Server

I have make DSN for the above ... and test using SQL Server and the connection using ODBC32 is test successful

But when I open the ASP page ... it gave me error line at 12 which is the connection using the DSN

Where should I put the above statement.. in body or in head ..

Can I have your Email address?

ASP's should be in an executable virtual directory. So you'll have to make such a directory.
I would explain opening the ASP in FP editor because your browser has associated the extension .asp with Frontpage. This has to disappera when the ASP is executed on the server.

I have move my contact web page to new virtual directory at my server...on IIS on NT4

I now edit my asp using notepad program

When open the page ..http://server/contact.asp
the following error occur
1) "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

   [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not
   found and no default driver specified

   /contact/contact.asp, line 15 "

2) "Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

   [Microsoft][ODBC Access 97 ODBC driver Driver]General
   error Unable to open registry key 'DriverId'.

   /contact/contact.asp, line 15"


I look at that line it about Conn.Open "DSN=contact"

So, I check at my ODBC32 Manager at control panel. The "contact" DSN is there but at which tab should I create ... there are
User DSN, System DSN, File DSN,

I have created the contact DSN at User and System tab
also I have try at File DSN still same error

Create the ODBC in System DSN.
Error 1, means that the DSN could not be found
Error 2, is unknown to me
Maybe some one else knows ?
