    Hi,

    Yes, you will be able to do it - I think Frontpage itself has tools to allow you to integrate a database with a webpage. I'm not big on the Microsoft side of web development, I do Perl with MySQL server normally, but I do remember seeing database connection options in Frontpage and have heard of people doing it.

    Additionally, I think that Access lets you create something called data access pages? Check them out too...they may help.

    Good luck!

    Jonathan

    I've used PHP to interact with MS Access via ODBC on Windows in the past, haven't used FP. You should be able to use MS Frontpage and some kind of ODBC connection to the Access database. I'd look through the FP help or Google for Access Frontpage ODBC.
