Hi Guys, I have a simple question, I havent done any web/html stuff for a long time, ive totally forgotton how to do everything.

At the moment im working on a small project, I was thinking of running it off a database but I think its way to complicated even for that as all I need is a single html page that populates with information that I have when certain inormation is entered.

Basically its a contact list, name, number, ID, landline fax number etc.

I have a list of about 400 names which I want to be searched by a ID and state, so for example, theres 2 data entry boxes, one is a drop down box of states and the next is a text entry field where you enter the ID (3 digits) once selected, it populates another text field with the information.

I want all the info to remain on a single page, or maybe the info on another page and displayed on the main page when the propriate ID number is entered.
Id prefer it this way as I can easily edit the page with text.

I dont think a database is appropriate, as I need to run this locally.

Does anyone have any idea what I need to do to get this done?
Id appreciate any help.

Thanks alot

I have to ask: if your are running it locally, why use web pages?

I would think you could do it in vb with m$access.
