    I manage a web site for a fairly well known (and deceased) singer and song writer. I have an Access database that collects comments regarding the site. Once a week, I download the Access mdb file and print/save the comments then copy over a new mdb with an empty table. Someone is adding hundreds of bogus messages to it. My knowledge of Access is solid but FrontPage is beginner. I need a SIMPLE solution that I can do to stop this from happening. The comments are entered from a separate web page.

    Thank you, in advance, for your help.

    John;)

    You could write some code to block his IP address, but if he is accessing the internet through a proxy it won't help. If you want me to try and write a simple script let me know.

    I was hoping for a simpler solution. Byt, if you would want to write the code and it wouldn't take much time of yours, go ahead.

    I appreciate your prompt reply. The table in the Access mdb gets added records each week, so I think it is some embedded code doing it, altho, I'm not up on all these things.

    Thank you, Rockn
    My wife thanks you, for it was her friend that people now submit their comments about.
