My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use Office 2007.  My temple wants me to develop a simple database so that users can add their contact information and sign up for activities online thru the web.   As an initial step, they want to capture the user's contact information, like name, address, tel no, etc. into a database.  And on another Form to capture their families names and ages.   and another Form to capture in which activity they would like to volunteer.  
I only know Access 2007 and that too would not consider myself an expert.  Can the experts please advise how to handle this and whether there are any, tutorials and  working models where I can try out to see how the whole thing works.  thank u.

Dear jegajothy

Your core requirement is that all entry forms should be web-based. For this purpose you have to use server side web programming language like

PHP with MySQL Database or
ASP.NET with Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle Database and
you can also use Oracle Application Express (Oracle APEX) available in Oracle Database 11g R2.
And your all deployment will be available through a network IP like http://192.168.0.1:8080.

If you want to proceed with Oracle Application Express, I can help you to install, develop and deploy the required forms over network .

In response to Muhammed, thank u.  While the entry forms look ok, but how and to which database is the data captured.  Can I use an Access database table for this?

Can I use an Access database table for this
Yes you can - you can connect to Access using the PDO library or the PHP ODBC library.
The standard though is to use PHP with MySQL.
However, if you have no experience with PHP or web development you might want to consider either getting a good book on the subject or finding someone with the necessary skills.
Alternatively Google

PHP CRUD Tutorial

This should bring up some introductory information on how to get started.

There is a way to use Access to develop you database and forms for use with the web.  I haven't done it before, but have seen the ability to save forms as web forms.  This may be your best bet with your current skill set.
