    Could Anyone suggest a good reference on Database access in ASP?


    For a new project I just got, I am being asked to code a small web site but it has to be in ASP. The company doesnt have alot of money, and wants to use ASP and an Microsoft Access database.
    I had thought that ASP was only able to use MS SQL, but maybe that is wrong.

    I am very adept in PHP and MySQL, and have programmed a little in ASP, but never with ASP+ and a database. Could someone please recommend a site or give some examples on using ASP with MySQL or with Access?

    Thanks in Advance for your help.

    You can use ASP with MySQL, MS SQL, Access, I even use it with some old xBase3 dbf's

    Search these forums, and google. After a quick search I found this on connecting to MySQL using ODBC:
    http://www.devarticles.com/art/1/50

    ASP/Access tutorials are everywhere.
    Hope that helps some.
