I'm interested in creating a web form that will deposit information into a SQL Server database. What's the best way to do this and what software exists to accomplish this? I have experience creating Access forms that connect to a SQL Server back end.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can use just about anything to do this. The most common options would be to use ASP, or ASP.NET. However you could also use Java, Cold Fusion, etc.

    Thank you. Do you have a form example of any code for a simple form? Also, how would I connect the form to the database?

    Some controls (such as data grids) can be connected to the database at design time, but for some operations you will have to connect programmatically. A short answer here won't teach you how to create a form and perform database operations if you are completely new to this. I would recommend to search the web for a beginner's tutorial, and my recommendation would be to use ASP.NET

    Is this for a client that already has web hosting with an SQL database? If so, check with their hosting provider and see what technologies they support (ASP.NET, PHP, ColdFusion, etc). You probably won't have the luxury to choose whatever you want so you will be limited to whatever they make available. Find out what tools you have available to you, then pick up a basic web development book that focuses on using those technologies. However, if you are able to choose whatever you like, you will probably want to look first at ASP.Net. Since you are working with a MS SQL Server database, this would be the logical place to start as good books and training will probably be easier to find. Look for a book titled something like "Beginning Web Development with ASP.NET." Good luck.
