    Javascript accessing database

    Is there a way for javascript to access database like Access 2000? If not, i am thinking of using ASP or PHP. However, I am now stuck in how to request ASP to get the required data so that Java script can be used to manipulate the data from ASP.

    Please help..

    Thanks

    no, javascript can't access a database. i know that you can pass variables from asp to javascript, and vice versa, but i don't know how.

    I know how to do what you are looking for, ASP variables manipulated by JS and vice versa, but I am not clear on what you are asking for. explain

    Actually, I need to get the data from the database in my web page (either ASP, JSP or PHP). With the data, i need to do processing using javascript with DHTML
    e.g.

    document.getElementById("flightID" + pageRow).filters.revealTrans.apply();

    document.getElementById("flightID" + pageRow).filters.revealTrans.play();

    document.getElementById("flightID" + pageRow).innerText= flights[flightArrayIndex[row]];

    The data from the database is big. I need to put these data into 10 rows of the table.
    Now, in order to show 10 rows of data at a time without a TOTAL PAGE REFRESH of the web browser, i need to replace each content of the table from the data in the database.

    Please advise on how to solve this problem

    thanks

    i think you should consider using PHP with a mySQL database. this is the most common script-database combination (i think) and both are very widley used and docmented on the net. PHP supports quite a number of differnt databases but mySQL is the most common with hosts.

    But does mySQL support unicode? In Access 2000, the character fields are able to upport unicode. Thanks. I will look into PHP with mySQL and javascript.
