Need help soon or else I am going to throw my computer out
My problem is simple (or so I thought). I would like to
collect data from people using a simple form. I thought all I would
have to do is create the form (done this already), and have the
form dump the info into a file (say a database). Then I could go
into the database and look at the data at my leisure. This is
proving far too difficult.
Steps I have taken so far:
1. I have created the form.
2. I have created the associated database using ACCESS 2000.
3. I have talked to my provider, they use ASP
This is where I get stuck. I want the info dumped into my
database. This apparently is not so easy. I have scoured the
internet for a layman's tutorial, but to no avail. There is talk of
a script required. Where does this go, in dreamweaver or elsewhere?
I switched to dreamweaver from FrontPage recently because of
the power behind the program. However, FrontPage is sooooo much
easier when it comes to collecting data. Why is dreamweaver so much
I am getting frustrated and hope someone out there can give
me a hand.

Because FP relies on a propriatary server technology that is
installed on the Windows Server.
DW works with all kinds of operating systems, web servers and
technologies. For some tasks, like the one you are inquiring about,
it has server behaviors that essential write the server side
scripts for you. Again, read the tutorial I mentioned.
