Part III: Creating Advanced Pages > Adding Database Connections

Chapter 13. Adding Database Connections

Figuring out how to link databases to Web sites can be a tail-chasing mess of missed deadlines and endless nights. Fortunately, Microsoft FrontPage includes the Database Results Wizard, which walks you step by step through the entire procedure. While a bit lengthy, the process involves five basic steps.

First, you create a connection between FrontPage and the database you want to work with. Once the connection’s established, you choose the database records you want to use. The third step involves filtering and sorting out which fields and records will be displayed. At that point, you decide how to format the results. Finally, you have the option of displaying all the results at once or breaking them into smaller groups. Just remember that database connections only work if your Web server includes the FrontPage server extensions and has been configured to handle Active Server Pages.
