Troubleshooting

I understand that there is the ability to control databases at the client level with Microsoft's Active Data Objects. Should I use that capability?

The beauty of Microsoft's data access technology is that it can be used anywhere using the same syntax. It is easy to develop database connection code and that code can execute locally as well as be reused on a server without any code changes whatsoever. With local database access, information can be controlled more dynamically and more quickly. However you need to carefully consider the visitors that will be frequenting your site. This capability only works if ActiveX is available on the client's workstation. If the visitor does not have the ability to use ActiveX controls because they are not using Internet Explorer or because ActiveX has not yet been made available for their platform, then you will need to consider creating alternate methods. In general, you should not design your Web sites to make use of specific features of a particular browser or operating system unless you know for sure that all of your potential visitors meet those requirements.
