You can write CGI programs in Perl that access any ODBC source.
You can buy ASP support for Apache, prototype your application on IIS, if that is where you feel comfortable, and port it easily to your production Apache.

Do you know the web sites which include the example source codes?? Maybe basic commands to get data from MS Access 2000. Especially SSI source code would be much more helpful.
Thank you!!

Hello Martinsys,
There is no way to avoid writing a program for what you need.
SSI can be used to include in a static HTML file output from another HTML resource, static or dynamic, but only from your server.
So, you must get someone to write some code for you that will access the database. SSI alone is not a solution.


will show you how to add SSI to your site and pages.
