I realized up there that our planet is not infinite. It's fragile. That may not be obvious to a lot of folks, and it's tough that people are fighting each other here on earth instead of trying to get together and live on this planet.

Major topics covered in this class:

  • Setting up a Database
  • Connecting to a Database
  • Using ODBC Data Sources
  • Reading Records from a Table
  • Looping Through a Set of Records
  • Adding Records to your Table

This is the big one: how to use a Database on your web site. We'll begin by learning a little bit about databases and exactly what they are. We will be using a Microsoft Access 2003 database in today's class (although later on I'll show you how to connect to a different database type). We'll create a simple Customer table and save our database.

Getting your database set up on your Web server is no easy task. I'll show you exactly what you have to do to get your database online and working. We'll set up the permissions on your Windows server so that people have access to read and write information from your database.

Next, we'll write an ASP script to connect to the database, open a table, and display some data from your records. If you can get this to work, everything else is going to work just fine for you. This screen shot doesn't look like much, but it's the first name of the first person in my customer table:

If you're not using Microsoft Access, I'll show you how you can use an ODBC connection on a Windows Server to connect to any other type of database, such as SQL Server, Oracle, even an Excel spreadsheet or delimited text file.

Since we know how to read in one record from our database, now I'll show you how to loop through all of the records in your database and display them all on the screen in a nice, pretty, formatted HTML table.

Finally, we'll learn how to add records to our database. This is important if you want to be able to save any new information to it.

Like I said earlier, this is the big one. Don't miss this class if you want to do anything with databases on your web site - including building shopping carts, blogs, user information sites, etc.
