Hi, I want to develop a website using Access as the database. (I'm using Access simply because I don't know SQL nor website languages so am trying to limit my learning to one thing and not both!) I will not always be able to connect to the internet when developing the website such as on a plane or staying in out of the way places or hotels that still charge and arm and a leg for the privilege of connecting to their £20 router if they have one and it works at an acceptable speed! What changes would I need to make, if any, to my laptop so that I can develop the website on the laptop and then copy everything to a server later? This is if that is possible!

To make it short: It is not possible to use Access as database for a website.

You can connect an Access application to a database Server over the internet, but that would be something like MySQL or MS SQL-Server.

Or you can create a desktop application and connect to it via remote desktop.

What is your database supposed to do? And who will be using it?

Don't despair, I am running a site using Access married with FrontPage 2000 @ CountyRealty.com.
Explore if you want.
Use the "Find Homes" tab and login using Firlands and Farm.
Database populates search results.

I need to dash to an appointment right now. Let me know what you think.

That's pretty interesting. I haven't heard of Front Page for years, not that I understand anything about web databases anyway:)

Oops, didn't notice there was a page 2 on the thread. I am referring to the countyrealty post.

"I haven't heard of Front Page for years, ..."

Microsoft deprecated Front Page years ago, so I'm not even sure you'd be able to find and obtain a copy to install.

If you go in the direction of creating a web app, go with Albert's recommendation, IMO. Visual Studio Express is a good deal.

Hey, this topic has suddenly sprung back into life and it's timely ... I didn't pursue the reason for the OP but I'm now back in the game with an SQL 2008 R2 database that I use with an Access 2016 (Office365) FE that contains some complimentary tables. I still can't do SQL 'properly' and I am constantly frustrated that it either won't/can't/I don't know how to do what I want or it makes it so complicated that I can't be bothered and resort back to the Access FE. So I would prefer to use the Access front end for everything and maybe gradually translate the Access SQL to Transact SQL over time. So I guess Visual Studio Express is the way to go, yes? Is there a good teaching website that can be recommended?

Thanks for the links sumosoftware I've looked at Zoho before and glanced at Caspio but couldn't find much about incorporating them in a website and if they will talk to SQL Server. Myabe I just missing it. frown.gif

And TinyGiant2010 ... I can't believe how cheap your property is! I used to have Frontpage 2003 but rather stupidly got shot of it when Microsoft launched Expression Web, that was a disaster!

Grover, there are many sites you can download Frontpage from (not suggesting you do!). 2003 was the last version and it is not on any offical compatability list for Win10 butmany say they still use it without any problem. I must admit the thought/product never crossed my mind.

Never doubt the courage of the French - they discovered that snails are edible!
