Connection woth Access database?

I use dreamweaver MX and i need to create a registration page ive decided to create the page using HTML but converted it into JSP, ive created a simple test form that "should" allow a user to create a password and username. Ive also created a database using microsoft access 2000 just a simple one in design view and saved it. The problem im getting is i dont know how to connect the form to the database, i do know how ur meant to do it but i dont know how to define a connection with the database, any help ecept for telling me to use dreamweaver help or site because ive already looked.

Greatly appreciated Dan

ok, let me see if I can help a little. I don't do any JSP programming so I can't help you there, but I do ASP. So, here is how I would do it.

Since you probably don't know what a global.asa is, we will just create a simple connection and then I will explain how to get your info into the database.

in the page where you have created the form. Make the action of the form = "". Doing this makes it so that if you submit the form, it sends the form info to the same page.

in the header of the page put this code

''// Create a connection string to your database
Connectstring = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & server.mappath("yourAccessDatabase.mdb")

''// If the form has been submitted then grabe the data and save it
if Request.ServerVariables("REQUEST_METHOD") = "POST" then

''// Create a connection to your database
set cn = server.createobject("ADODB.Connection")
cn.Open Connectstring

''// Grab values from the form
Username = Request.Form("Username")
Password = Request.Form("Password")

''// Create sql statement to insert a record into the database
''// Replace caps with your correct info

sql = "INSERT into tblYourTable (Username, Password) VALUES ('" & Username & "', '" & Password & "')"


set cn = nothing

end if

This is very basic. It is tough to do online like this. Feel free to contact my via email if you want to learn a little more about asp.

server side

I think you need server side script to connect to the database. i think you can't connect to the database if use only html, or maybe you can use XML
In dreamweaver you can connect to the database by click the plus (+) button in databases tabs, on the application panel. you can use cutom connection string or use DSN. But you have to create your site first
