Building a web interface using frontpage and Access Database
Posted on 2004-09-14
I may be confused but maybe not. The person I am working with on this project and I are having a debate. Thought I could get some help as I am not the network person. I know only enough to get by on the network side. Also this is a much larger project than I am used too.
I am in the process of creating an intranet site for my company using frontpage 2003. We are using Frontpage server extensions not Sharepoint services. We are using an Access database that is SQL server based. I am now ready to create the pages and connect to the Data source. My Idea is to create a new blank page and insert the database and connect as I go and save as an .asp. The person I am working with however says that I cannot do this and should create the pages by inserting tables and buttons and dropdown boxes etc. and than connect the backend to the data source by programming with ASP.Net or as he says .aspx. I feel as if I will be creating more work than is really needed and possibly creating my pages more than once if I do the later. Everywhere I have researched I get the same way to insert a database but the otherside is saying because of the .aspx I cannot do this. My lack of experience can't see why I can't
My question would be is there another solution or what is the best way to go about the creation of this intranet?
