Subject: Beginning ASP Databases



Thanks for the great "sailors" example in Beginning ASP Databases.  I used 

it to develop a continuing education course signup system based on 

MSAccess97.  Sorry I am such a beginner, but it seems that MacIntosh users 

can see the web form, but when they press the submit button, nothing 

happens.  Any helpful hints?  Does IE for the Mac work differently from IE4 

or 5?  Thanks.

Perhaps your HTML is malformed? Eg the submit button is not inside

<form></form> tags...



Cheers

Ken

Hi Ken,



I have two Wrox publications, one on ASP Databases, the other on scripting.

I am actually making it up a pretty steep learning curve with a small, but

measurable amount of success.



Can you point me towards additional publications to learn SQL (as used

within ASP applications)?



Tks



Sam

WROX's Professional SQL Server 7.0 and O'Reilly's Transact-SQL Prgramming are

two

of my most used resources..

SQL is an ANSI standard (well, SQL 92 is), so you can just download that.



Wrox Press has a book called Beginning Databases with ASP (or similar). You

might want to look into that. The Professional SQL Server 7.0 book mentioned

is also pretty good.



As well, you need to get the basics right - things like HTML, CSS etc also

have their own rules and standards (and browsers their quirks). There are

several good online resources in this area which you probably want to get

hold of.



An understanding of HTTP would also be useful :-) The Wrox Press Beginning

Active Server Pages v3 has a very useful appendix which covers using forms

and databases.



Cheers

Ken

gulp! The standard is *huge* and defines SQL in BNF. It doesn't actually

teach you anything. Not a route I would try unless you have many many spare

weeks and are fluent with BNF!

Also, Microsoft Press Inside SQL Server 7.0 is a good resource (altho' more

reference than educational) and O'Reilly's Transact SQL is invaluable if you

are going to be developing stored procedures or triggers in SQL Server. If

you have a lot of database interaction stored procedures will give you a

performance boost, a scalability boost and a security boost so well worth

looking at.



hth,

Subject: Beginning ASP Databases by John Kauffmann





Hi there,



Re: Beginning ASP Databases by John Kauffmann



I've got a query relating to the above book.



I bought the book to help me develop pages for my companies intranet. The

book has been very beneficial. However, I tried to view the html & Asp 

pages

for Chapter 10 - Tryitout-1.htm & Tyritout-2.asp. 



They work like a dream on the companies PC's but on the Mac's the first 

page

can be viewed but the submit button does not work. Is there any way around

this problem?



Can you help/Direct me to a web site with answers?



Thanking you in advance for your time



Kind Regards



Dirk Welsh
