I created an HTML form with several different input fields. these input fields will have different database field / column names(input CompanyName = table1.field, input Address1 = table1.field, etc.). i need to be able to connect to a any type of database, the user will provide either a connection string or DSN in a few input fields on the HTML form. After i have the database info i will need to connect to the database and display in a drop down list the table name(s). After i have the table that the user will use i need to create a list in a drop down of all the fields / columns in that table. I will then allow the user to select different field / column names for each input in the form. i will also need a way for the user to select a different table if fields / columns are located in seperate tables (table1.Company,, table3.description_of_items). if the user selects more than one table i need to know which fields / columns join each table. All this needs to be dynamicly in my HTML form. I will be writing this in a HTA using HTML and JavaScript.

if you need any further info please let me know.

Any help would be appreciated.
