Subject:Creating a database from a web form From:Stephen Victor <svictor -at- HOUSTON -dot- GEOQUEST -dot- SLB -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 3 Apr 1997 11:29:35 -0600
I'm trying to capture data from an HTML form and track it in a Microsoft
Access database. The problem is complicated because I want to set up and
maintain the form on my UNIX machine (Sun) but have the data sent to a
PC running Access. All of the web form database packages I've seen (such
as CoolFusion) run only on Windows platforms. I could learn perl and
play around with cgi scripts to get this done, but I'd rather have a
nice GUI application to do it. Any suggestions?
