Database Results Wizard

One of the more common functions that a Web page developer wants is the ability to include information from a database into the current page. This functionality has been built in to FrontPage 2000 as a wizard, which will certainly increase non-developers' ability to include complex database results. This is a good situation for both developers and basic Web page authors. It gives the power of complex database results to the author, which reduces cycle time in developing Web pages. It also frees the developer to create more complex solutions on the server rather than constantly tweaking database results.

The Database Results Wizard in FrontPage 2000 supports a plethora of database formats including Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server, and Oracle. It also supports additional database software and legacy systems via ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) (page 836) drivers that link between common database functions exposed by FrontPage and equivalent system-specific results on the destination system. To begin the Database Results Wizard, you must be working on a page within FrontPage 2000. Because of the context-sensitive menus within FrontPage, the option to insert database results will not appear on the menu until you either create a new page or edit an existing one.
