I just learned how i can create records and view them using the FrontPage database wizards.  Also, the records are created in MS Access.  what i want to do is be able to rearrange the records in the database as well as edit or delete a record.  Does FrontPage 2000 have a way of creating this also or can it only return the database entrys?

Also quick question...does the file upload feature in FrontPage 2002 work only with 2002 extensions or does it work with 2000 also?  uploading images to a database is something else i would like to figure out

Hi there hesperus & welcome to EE.

What you are going to find with the FP db Wizards is a whole lot of frustrations if you try to do anything complex such as editing/deleting/rearranging records.  Unfortunately, you don't have any flexibility and FP writes all your ASP code itself....you cannot debug it and you cannot change it.  Just take a quick peek at a few of the open questions here and you will see that I am working with other FP users, trying to manipulate the results/code that FP spits out....sometimes without much success.

My best advice?  Learn ASP.  It is really easy to pick up and doing the editing/deleteing etc you are trying to do is part of the basics.  Visit www.ASP101.com for an overview/tutorial.  Then you can post your questions here or in the ASP topic area.

As for uploading images to a db....bad idea.  Much better practice is to load the image into a folder and use the db to point to that image (put the path in the field, not the actual image).  Much less work on the server and it will make your pages faster.

I hope this helps you.  Feel free to post a response to continue this discussion, or ask for clarification on any point.

Thanks for participating in EE.  I know you will find it as useful a resource as I do.
