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?

Many thanks,
