Sorry, haven't checked in for a minute. Thanks for getting back to me. I get what you're saying, which is awesome, because normally that doesn't happen. Still pretty green.
Now, on a similar note, after I posted that, I started looking at alternatives to my goal, to kinda broaden the hypothetical horizons. I've created a MySQL database and am manipulating it with PHP. I actually did get a working form on that, real simple though, only accepts uppercase letters, exact matches (KSAN and SAN are the same thing) and nothing special happens if a non-valid entry is entered.
That's neither here nor there, I'll post something in the PHP forum later,
My question is, is there a particular advantage to using PHP and MySQL compared to ASP.NET and SQL? The only thing that really stands out is ASP.NET seems to a be a little more user friendly and easier to understand (var vs. $) Also, having phpMyAdmin is a nice tool.
