View Full Version : Trying to get FP to create access DB

When I get to
"Create the Database Using the HTML Form
To create the Access database with your HTML form, follow these steps:
Right-click anywhere in the form, and click Form Properties.
In the Form Properties dialog box, click to select the Send To Database option, and click Options."
My Send to Database is grayed out. Any ideas what i'm doing wrong?

Hi there and welcome,
I believe you need to be working on your live website to do this, not on your computer copy of website.
However Bud one of our admin, is a sort of database guru ... and he has an excellent tutorial you may wish to also follow. You can find it in his workshop here http://frontpage.kmoraine.com/workshop/
Hope that helps. A search on this forum will also bring up some good database information for you.
Make sure that
From the Tools menu
Server versions is either Custom or Microsoft Internet Information Server 3.0 or later
Access data bases will not be available on Apache.
On a server running Microsoft Internet Information Server 3.0 or later,
The ISP has the ability to disable the feature.
So if you are working Live, on a Server running Apache it will NOT be an option.
If you are working Live, on a Server running Microsoft Internet Information Server 3.0 or later It should be available.... BUT If it's not available, it's probly turned off. In which case you can contact your provider.
On Disk based webs, as long as compatability is set properly, the feature will be available.
