I think you'd have the same issue with Chilisoft ASP as you would with PHP because the issue isn't with the scripting language but with the OS's support for ODBC or DSNless connections to an Access database. I did a little reading on Chilisoft ASP a while ago and (1) it's not free from what I understand and (2) I heard it doesn't function exactly how ASP is supposed to so you could have some stability issues. The MySQL thing along with MDBTools or something sounds like it could be the best way to go.
Or if you keep your master data set in MySQL and just use Access to pull a copy from it when necessary for distribution (you said you distributed the data via MDB files right? Or do people change the MDBs and that becomes the master?) At any rate, good luck! And keep us updated! -TG > -----Original Message----- > From: Alex Gemmell [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] > Sent: Wednesday, May 12, 2004 12:09 PM > To: Gryffyn, Trevor; 'PHP List' > Cc: 'Robert Twitty' > Subject: RE: [PHP-DB] Linux/PHP/Access Database - oh boy :( > > > Thanks again Trevor and Bob! > > The reason I was mentioning ASP is because "Chilli Soft!
