    Dreamweaver 8 - Database Connectivity

    dreamerstech
      Hello everyone here is what I'm trying to do:
      Lets say that on my home page I have a few news topics. I span this column of news topics arcoss serveral of my sites webpages. Now I don't want to have to update every single page, every single time I change the news topic. Now I know there's mysql etc., and various other full scale database solutions. I'm a newbie to databases and I just want the most simpliest solution to this even if it's memory intensive etc., just so I could get a grasp of how databases work. I've heard that you could use a excel file for this or even some type of access file. Please help, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

          What server models does your host support (ASP, CF, PHP, etc.)?

          Do you have Access?

          Do you know any of these server scripting languages?
