Re: Knowledge Base Template

Are you suggesting just creating an Access database? Because I was
pondering this route. For printing, it would just be an issue of
formatting the layout for a report. But creating a database would not
be that big of an issue.
I tend to think of a knowledge base as being larger than Access can handle. You'd probably be looking at either MS SQL Server or at MySQL, unless you know that the knowledge base isn't going to grow very large.
Then you would use some sort of server-side script (ASP, PHP, etc., depending on what kind of web server you have access to), to field user requests in a web page, retrieve the requested information from the database (resident on the same machine as the web server or on a separate database server) and format it for display and printing.
