    I'd take this tutorial to start with (if you can get past the lame references to the early west, you can learn a lot):

    http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/...tml?tw=backend

    You have to start with the basics and understand them before trying to push the limits!

    ... and this will give you a pretty good basic handle on relational databases... not to mention, when using Access, I still use a modified version of their "query.asp".

    It seems that your post was about wanting to make a NEW database, instead of modifying your existing database depending upon the criteria you specify. That's NOT the way to do it.

    AFTER you master that, check out:

    http://www.w3schools.com/asp

    It has a wealth of information - but I would really recommend "Beginning ASP 3.0" by Wrox.com (it's a book) - that will give you a darn good start, if you can master up to chapter 15.

    P.S. If you feel confident you can skip that, just go to http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_ref_filesystem.asp

    Thx Whammy!

    Very useful link's u gave me.
    it gives u a clue here and there....(ok alot of clues) hehe

    and i concider if i do really need to create new file,
    might work if i could change the "actual post" inside the mdb file.

    i know how to add a new, remove an existing. but to change one without giving it a new "place" i dont know.....sound to be easy
    but when i dont find any perfect match "tutorial"...

    feel like i have to explain the way i wanna make it:

    u can register and get a password (done that)
    u can post msg if registered (done that)
    u get other pages and links when logged in (done that)


    u can change "user profile" settings (issue 1..).
    u can post replys to a certain msg (issue 2..).

    issue 1.....
    How to change value of a certain post.
    without giving it a new ' id # '
    cus when i do this i put all nessercerly info into "session variables" and then delete the post then put the new values back, but then i get a new id # for that post...

    issue 2.....
    i have no idea how to make this (easy way)
    i downloaded a tutorial "forum alike" and that is too much
    i dont need it to be like a forum,,just to be able to handle a reply
    to a msg,,,,,

    My english is not too good eighter so (sorry) for any misspelled words......

    thx in adv

    You can definitely change the post, look into the SQL "UPDATE" statement. You'll find that in the first tutorial, I believe...
