Sorry Guy's,

My question seems to cover many forums. For the life of me I didn't know which one to choose.

Anyway, can I ask some advice please;-

I have my website (functioning).

I have MS Access (I'm new to it).

What I want to do is, update my website information from a MS Access database on my PC. As lame as it is that is all I know, I haven't got a clue how to go about it or if I need more software MSsql or PHP or whatever.

I realise this is probably too involved to give all the answers in a forum, but would you guys kindly suggest what (apart from Access) software I need and suggest where I might learn about how to do this (any web sources). Perhaps importantly, is it something a newbie should endeavour to do.

Many thanks for any info.

I've only ever used mySQL, so I'm not sure, but I think the way you go about it would depend on which web server you're using...

Thanks for the reply Odhinn.

Yes, my host has just about all of the facilities, MSsql, PHP and most other scripts etc.

I just can't find out hoe to put this all together with my Access database... i *think* thats the way some people do it, but I'm not sure and I can't find any simple tutorials on the web.

Thanks anyway.

I'm not sure that you can combine them....the best thing to try would be to try to export the information from the access database and try to import it somehow into a mySQL database

You could be right Odhinn. I've been unable to find any info., perhaps I was dreaming when I thought of it Confused

Guess I'd better start looking for just the mySQL / PHP tutorials.

Thanks very much for your interest.
