FP2003: Unique UserName/Password Access to Online App

I asked a variation of this question before.  I need to have an application for professional liability for architects and engineers placed on the web.  We would like to "invite" an architect to complete his/her application and then submit the data to us, our server.  The architect needs the ability to enter the blank or partially completed application several times and then click "submit".

I know FP must link to a database such as Access but how do I (can I?) create the user name and password system and the ability for the user to view their application multiple times?

Yes Charlie of course.

There is a quick way to do that using Access + DRW (Database Results Wizard).  But if you want more complicated and secure method you will need to use ASP.

In the quick way you can have unique password and user name for each architect.

1- You need to create an Access database
2- You need to create a table for the username and passwords
3- You need to create a table for the projects
4- You need to create a form to login
5- You need to create a validation page (checks the password+Username)
6- You need to create a menu with option for entering and editing data

You can search the internet for ready made solutions if you are interested.  The ready made solutions will solve your login problem,  but you still need to do some work of you own to tailor something that you need.

In case you are interested in a way that involves steps to follow and very little programming,  please let me know in order to start the steps.
