    DHTML and databases


    If you have a Microsoft access Database stored on the server is it possible
    to send a query to the database from a DHTML page? If so how? If not what´s
    the best way to do something like this?

    Many thanks
    dave

    It has to run on the server, but you could use Remote Scripting to make the
    call from the client...using this, your web app starts to work like a 'real'
    client server app, you don't have to submit a form, or click a url, but can
    use script to call a method on the server that returns the results to the
    client without leaving the page they are on...I think the amount of data you
    can send back and forth is pretty limited though, and can only be strings,
    maybe that has changed with newer versions of scripting, but it used to be
    strings only.

    If you need to send and get lots of data, look at XMLHTTP it will handle
    about as much data as you would ever care to send over the wire.

    You may want to consider RDS if you are IE only browser. The Remote Scripting
    is also a good alternative, just try to limit it to small recordsets or one
    record at a time. The XMHttp is also good, but you may also be limited currently
    to IE with it.

    Thanks
