I develop websites on the side, it is basically a hobby. An organization has approached me to develop a site for them
which I may or may not take depending on one thing. This organization would like individuals within their organization to be able to access their individual information via a password protected area. The information will contain their hours worked, hours needed for next level, credits earned,and test scores. The individual should only be able to access their information only. I use MS Front Page, and NetObjects. Is this possible with these programs and if not what is reccomended?

Sure it'd be possible, using some server-side scripting like PHP.
PHP can require a user to authenticate with username/password, and then the scripts can query a database for only the records linked to the authenticated username.
I use NetObjects along with HomeSite to do my database-enabled sites. HomeSite is PHP-aware, and the combination works relatively well.
