    Question i need help with databases

    Hi

    I need to set up a html page that has a search field which will search a database for either a keyword or field.

    the problem is that I have never built a database or search function.

    Is there anyone who can help me out or point me in the right direction.

    PLEASE ??

    Hello limo,

    I am not saying it is impossible to access a database using HTML alone, but it is not advised.

    If you are wanting to search a database using a web language, I suggest either ASP or PHP. Using either of these languages, you can access many types of databases (eg: MySql and Microsoft Access).

    Once you have decided on a database platform and a language to code in, come back and I will help you from there.
    Space exists so everything doesn't happen to you. Time exists so everything doesn't happen at once. Life creates opportunity. Your part in this scene named life is to take the opportunity you encounter, or lose out, miserably..

    one day all will suffice..
