Hmm, I'm not sure how to go a bout this my company would like to link our Inventory database to our website so that customers may log in and search any of the previous orders they have made as well as be able to get quotes on varying quantities of these previous orders. My problem being that I'm fairly limited on experience in both of these fields and was hoping someone here could help me with this. I can find out further details as they need be, but I've just kinda had this thrown at me and I'm not even sure I know where to begin, Thanks in Advance.

I'm not too sure, but one thing you should do is look at the ASP.net classes for adding Access support. Access 97 is, as you know, an older version, and the earlier ASP.net framework 1.1 versions definitely supported it. Why in the world are you still using Access 97 anyway? You folks should upgrade and hit the new age.

Because licenses cost money, and many businesses have tiny budgets for things like that, so they make due with what they have. :thumbsup:

ASP can definately do this, I have done it many times with both access and excel. There were many tutorials avaliable online as long as you have an Windows (IIS) server this should be no problem :thumbsup:
