Where do I go with questions about data access pages?

    Under Access there are a bunch of specific subjects, but none of them looks
    like a data access page area. That's what all my questions are about, right
    now.

    I am a complete newbie here - find this place VERY intimidating! I don't
    know how I will know if someone has answered my question. The ID I use to
    sign in uses an email address (at hotmail) that I rarely check. Should I
    change to an email address I DO use (at Verizon)? Or set up a new ID and
    pretend I'm a different person? I don't want to get too deep into this until
    I know that it's not just too difficult to get answers, and how to really
    search for the info I need before plowing ahead and askinq questions that
    have been answered a million times already.
    Thanks. Kitty

    Data Access Pages (DAPs) have quite limited functionality, so not many of us
    use them here. If you are getting no answers to your question on this topic,
    it does not mean you asked a bad question. It may just be that people are
    not answering your question if they don't use DAPs.

    Microsoft has a couple of articles on this:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/253754/en-us
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/264080/en-us

    Realistically, though, DAPs are a dead technology, and Access 2007 will not
    support them.

    Download and learn how to use phprunner from xlinesoft. Yes, you can access
    an mdb or odbc database with php. If you prefer, use asp, or even asp.net,
    or use access as frontend to sql server if it doesn't have to be an internet
    database. I believe php is a good choice for a web database interface. One
    day, I will go back to asp or asp.net when microsoft slows down a little.
    They are turning out too much too fast for me right now, I do use access 97
    and access 2000, and like them both.
    A little secret. Dbase 3+ to me is still superior to 98% of all databases
    on the market. But these modern people will not go without a mouse, and a
    program that is 1536 times the size needed. Oh don't forget all the help
    wizards needed. You know, I guess it's this same type people that need
    Pictures on keys to ring up food. Once upon a time, people could make
    chance in their head. Most modern computer users aren't computer literate,
    they are dumb, with no appreciatation of what it really takes to make a
    complex program do something, but of course people are wearing their pants
    half down nowadays too. Face it modern people don't care about nothing
    anytime anyway. I bet people were smarter when they learned programming
    from a blank screen, and didn't have 38.3659 gigabyes of help wizards. Lets
    do one beter, if you didn't have at least algebra 2 in high school, you
    can't have a computer. I bet this will make a better country... thats all
    folks.

    P.S. to last post.
    Replied on wrong line (reply point), didn't mean to reply after Allen
    Browne. I myself have learned a whole lot from the Allen Browne web site.
    I have actually used the pedigrees example in a database.
    Sorry for inserting at wrong line.

    Hi, Jim.

    And most English teachers complain that people's English writing skills are
    atrocious. People often write run-on sentences, use poor grammar, and make
    many spelling and capitalization mistakes.

    > Lets do one beter, if you didn't have at least algebra 2 in high school,
    > you can't have a computer.


    Touche. We should take the computer keyboards and all of the writing
    utensils away from anyone whose English writing skills don't meet sixth
    grade level standards. Or does this penalty sound rather absurd to you,
    too? ;-)

    > I bet this will make a better country


    How about this idea, instead? Each time you encounter someone who's
    computer-challenged, teach him how to use the computer instead of spending
    the time condemning him. And perhaps some of the people you help can help
    you improve your English writing skills.

    HTH.
