    Is it possible to access a database from Javascript? We need to create a CD with a website on with an Access database, and thought it may be possible to use COM objects to display the database information on the pages.

    there is no possibility to access databases from JavaScript because it is client-side technology.

    Microsoft has a technology called "data binding' which allows client-side script to access databases. This will work only on the IE browser. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/ie

    Hi,
    I had the impression that Server Side Javascript can be used for database access(allthough limited to certain Web Servers e.g. NES).
    To get detailed information plz check the Netscape documentations etc....
    Bye.
