  • Need smart person

    obviously, I'm asking in the wrong place, but I'm trying to edit a website that was built in Frontpage 2003 with an access database.

    Before we talk about how shitting Frontpage and Access are, realize one thing: I don't give a shit. I'm editing someone elses work...and don't feel the need to fuck around with building form scratch with SQL and PHP.

    The database is a very simple repository for inventory information that will only add maybe 40 records a year.

    Currently, the user is downloading the access db and running some reports locally.

    I'm wondering if there's a way to get those reports to run (or build new reports to run) directly from the website.

      I'm disappointed it took this long to get a wiseass remark.

        Yeah, but you had to know you'd get a smartass reply before you got one that actually helped right?

          Have you tried Google? Or Posner? Is Buccigross doing a web Q&A today? Reasonable options, all.

              Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

                      yeah you will have to use a programming language like asp. you can construct sql statements to get records from the access database.

                        The ASP pages are built for input and output, but only a simple report....which just lists records.

                        They want me to include other things like running totals and % calculations based on the data.

                          Try this

                          Not sure if that's going to help or not, but a) it's worth a shot and b) I already suggested getting a Mac

                            Well once you have opened the recordset, you can assign field records to variables, do math on the variables etc. and then write the output to the screen. It's not as pure and simple to do what you are asking. Crystal Reports may accomplish some of it...
