Question Data Bases

Hi Rod,

I am now trying to learn database programming. From what I have read so far, it seems that it is common to write code to manage an existing database file. I am fairly familiar with making databases with Microsoft Access. However, what I need is to have a database that can be updated and displayed through the internet. My question is, If I create a database with Microsoft Access, can I use that database as a significant part of my online database? In otherwords, can I do something like uploading the Microsoft Database and then create the code so that I can maniplate the data in that online database?

I look forward to your reply.

You can do that (for example, see Walkthrough: Creating a Web Page to Display Access Database Data). But I think it's more common to use SQL Server or MySQL rather than Access for this.

You might want to look for a book that talks about how to use databases in web pages. You'll also need to decide whether you want to use ASP.NET, Silverlight, Java, or some other method.
