IV. Forms and Databases > 17. Interacting with a Database

Chapter 17. Interacting with a Database

In the last chapter, you learned how to display portions of a database on a Web page. But what if you want to let your site viewers tap directly into your data, so that they can manipulate what they’re looking at, rather than just passively view it? For example, say you’ve posted employee profiles for everyone in your office, but you don’t have anyone’s home address. Sure, you could walk around with a pen and paper jotting down names and addresses. But wouldn’t it be a lot easier if everyone could just enter their own information right into the database? And wouldn’t it be great if you could let people edit their addresses directly through their browser window, rather than having to teach them how to use the database software (not to mention installing the program on all their computers)?
