I've got a web based application where students submit which subjects they want to take for the next semester and Administrators submit what subjects are available and what grade is required for each. All this info is then stored in an Access Database then after a date specified by the administrator which is also stored in database, I want a procedure to run which will allocate modules to the students according to there Grade.

Any ideas, help or links?
Bearing in mind that my knowledge in this area is limited.

Thanks

Is this to be done in C++?
Is it a CGI?

What do you mean by 'module'?
If the stuff is in a database, you can issue SQL to the database to update the records by grade (in the 'where' clause) and allocate modules.

Can you shed som more light on what you're trying to do?

You should try posting this question on the Access topic link.

I don't see a C++ requirement.

FYI:

You could do this in C++, but IMHO, you would be making it harder on yourself.

Dear dessie

I think you forgot this question. I will ask Community Support to close it unless you finalize it within 7 days. You can always request to keep this question open. But remember, experts can only help you if you provide feedback to their questions.
Unless there is objection or further activity,  I will suggest to

     "PAQ at zero points"

since you never gave more feedback.

PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT THIS COMMENT AS AN ANSWER!
