FrontPage form feeds to Access DB - cut off programming

    Hi,

    I am well versed in FrontPage, but an amateur in Access. I have a
    registration form on my site that feeds results into an Access database.

    My siutation: there are only a limited number of spaces in each class we
    hold. I would like to cap off registrations after we are full - for example,
    when the 12th person registers for a particular class, the 13th person will
    not be able to register.

    I assume I'll need some scripting, can someone please describe what I need
    to do next?

    Thank you!

    I'd suggest your question would be better addressed in the sponsored
    newsgroup microsoft.public.frontpage.programming, or a newsgroup devoted to
    ..asp pages, ASP.NET, javascript, or vbscript. Despite the common usage of
    "Access database" by Microsoft and others, you are actually feeding the
    results into a Jet database engine database, and Access itself is nowhere
    involved in that operation.

    You will need to use javascript, vbscript, .asp pages, or ASP.NET to do your
    processing -- none of those are a part of Access and it would just be
    happenstance if you were to find the answer here. If we gave you an Access
    VBA answer it might not translate well to the environment you will actually
    be using.
