Hi there,

I'm looking for some tutorials / information URLs to help me learn how to link an Access DB to my Dreamweaver site, using ASP.VBscript.

I am running Dreamweaver MX, Access, and PWS all on a laptop running win 98 (Nasty set-up but best i can get my hands on for this).

Just need to help to set up an online Shop website, accessing the DB to get product info etc, and also to create a SHOPPING BASKET.

Any tutorial sites on how to do this? I found the built in DW help quite good, but need more help for the shopping basket and stuff like temporary tables etc.

Thanks,
LH

Thanks for the tips so far!

I have had a look, and now changed my set-up to suit me a bit more.

I discovered that you can use "Abyss Web Server" From Aprelium.com, and get a plug in so you can run asp pages on it - which all works on XP Home - this setup is much better than the dodgy Win 98 Laptop I was using!

But I'm still looking for useful tips on creating the shopping basket, so keep em coming if you have any more ideas!

:o)

Thanks Guys,

in the end I went with Bit Twiddler's suggestions from WebThang - what a great site! :o)

Got some great tips and a much better understanding of how to get Dreamweaver to behave the way I want now.
