    * Install a Server (e.g NT Server with IIS)

    * Setup ur database (eg. SQL 7.0 Server) on
    the server (e.g NT Server)

    * Install SQL 7.0 Client on workstation
    (e.g NT Workstation)

    * u may like to install Visual Interdev 6.0
    its interface is similar to that of
    Visual Basic. you would probably wont get too
    intimidated by it.

    * with ur background in VB...u could use VBscript
    and the rest are probably drag and drop
    configuration on the database connection etc..

    jkl

    To be honest...I am just doing this as a bit of fun, so there for my funds
    are rathar low...

    I am using Win 98, so I think that any form of TN hosting is a bit too
    far...

    I was hoping to do this for about, mmmm, $0


    Oh well.....

    Thanks anyway,
    Doug
