    Give tips to build up a web.


    Dear experts,

    My company want to build a web-application for input the documents such as
    'absence form', 'job request form', 'annual leave form' for internal use.

    I think we will use the javascript as well as the html.
    Since i am new in the web application, can someone tell me what i need to
    consider. I want to know how can i save the user's input to the server and
    get the user's request from the server and how to display the informat as
    html form format? I listen the CGI, PERL and PHP, should i need them in writing
    the web-application and when to use them? Do you have good web-site or good
    samples for me as a beginner to refer to.

    Thanks a lot

    Toms

    Toms,

    What platform are you working on? What database are you using?
    You need to create the HTML forms to take the user input, then you will need
    server-side code to parse the data and insert it into a database. If you
    don't have a database you can use Excel or worst case scenario write all
    the data to text files using the file system object (FSO).

    Good luck and let me know if you have any questions,
    Michael

    Here are some "getting started" ideas especially if you are considering putting
    databases on the Web perhaps with ASP.

    You and others can have access to a database hosted on the Web from any location
    that has a browser with an Internet connection.

    The Web database concept makes sense if you and your people want to do work
    in various locations in or outside the office and still be "plugged" in.

    For example you could have employees enter timesheets or have sales reps
    log their contacts. Or perhaps you'd like customers to be able to check
    the status of their orders online without having to call the company.

    If you want a Web database, typically what would happen is that a database
    such as Access or MySQL (basically just consisting of tables) would be put
    on the Web.

    Then "dynamic" Web pages (actually ASP pages which include VBScript, HTML,
    and/or JavaScript) would be created acting like the old desktop database's
    queries, forms, and reports to access the database - all hosted on a Web
    Server.

    Dynamic Web pages are similar in many ways to regular HTML pages. But they
    are "live" because the user can read from and write to information in the
    database. An example where you can login and add, edit, or view fictional
    customers and invoices is at http://www.bullschmidt.com/login.asp

    Not all Web hosts will handle dynamic Web pages but many do. The Web hosts
    that can handle ASP pages usually have a Windows 2000 operating system running
    an IIS Web server.

    Here are a few good ASP sites:
    o ASP101 (See the Samples Section) - http://www.asp101.com
    o 4GuysFromRolla - http://www.4guysfromrolla.com
    o Microsoft VBScript Language Reference - http://msdn.microsoft.com/scripting/...bscripttoc.htm

    And the following newsgroup is good:
    microsoft.public.inetserver.asp.general

    Or for a "quick and dirty" generic ASP solution to putting database tables
    on the Web that just requires setting up a configuration page for each table
    or query and uploading the database to the Web as long as you have an autonumber
    field in each table (and as a more advanced issue you'll probably sometime
    in the future want to create login capabilities), perhaps try something like
    this:
