it's regarding the post i left a little while ago about frontpage. I've sorted what i have to do and came up with this:

I need a Visual Basic macro that will create a query and turn it into a query/table so that i can access it from my webpage. The accesing part i've already figure out. but it only reads one table from a specific database. The sorting will have to be done in he macro.

If anybody has any iidea of how to deal with this please contact me. it is very important. deadline due soon. Appreciate all the help i could get.

You should then reply to your own question instead of creating a new one.

I need a Visual Basic macro that will create a query and turn it into a query/table so that i can access it from my webpage. The accesing part i've already figure out. but it only reads one table from a specific database. The sorting will have to be done in he macro.
1. Create a query from what data?
2. Turn it into what kind of query/table?
3. What kind of web page? Front Page, which doesn't DO that kind of thing--at least not to my knowledge.

Macros don't run on the web.
VBScript and ASP do.

When asking questions provide all program names and versions, file types, environments, etc. Your question is just too vague, especially if you're in a hurry.

Why don't you give us a link to something similar to what you're trying to create?

Help us help you.

Here's your original question, which I've deleted as a separate post.

I need to link Access XP, Excel XP and Frontpage XP. how? well i need that when the customer presses a hover button in their intranet webpage (which i will build) that the process created will be:

-once pressed it will activate Access XP and pick two tables and link them and from there take out a query which will select specific fields
-this will happen on the background but once it is done it needs to activate Excel XP and this window must show up on the screen with a report made out of the query created in access.

simplified:

I press button, excel window pops up with the report.

I know what i should do but i don't know how the hell to start and my asp knowledge is very limited. Any help will be mostly apreciated
Frontpage builds websites. It does not interact with other programs per se. The only Frontpage code that exists is the code you use to create the website, and NOT code that runs in an active website. Maybe that'll help clarify for you.

Databases on the web are really only back ends. All front ends on the web are created using ASP or PHP using Access or MySQL databases. ASP/PHP are also used to write the queries.

Forget Excel on the web, it's just a view you want to provide, right?

ASP/PHP programming can cost you a bit of money; I've heard about $100/hour for a decent programmer.

Also, whether you need ASP or PHP depends on the server being used at your web. Do you know? Windows servers use ASP; Unix servers use PHP.

Feel free to ask me any more questions, but I hope you seen now why I didn't answer last time. I just didn't have the time.

Also, VB is not VBA and you should differentiate, please.

I've changed the title of your Q.
I've moved it to the development forum.
