Searchable database

Hi I'm not sure if this is the right section but i have an access database of finds from an archaeological site which i would like to put a limited (not editable) copy online similar to the British Museums site: Britishmuseum.org/research/collection_online/search.aspx all i would want it to do is show a picture and soem basic fields, it wouldn't need to be edit-able or anything, is this a simple thing to do? Thanks

Re: Searchable database

Hmm, well, what version of Access are you using? Are you planning on turning it into a Web Database? You can't just but a desktop database on the web... if that is what you are thinking.

Re: Searchable database

I'm on access 2010, I would only need a photo and a few fields of the database to show and respond to queries rather than the full thing, I was thinking of exporting it out as a CSV but I'm unsure of the next step

Re: Searchable database

You can't just throw a .CSV file up and have it work like the British Museum's site. You'll have some work to do the first part being to pick a platform and then a place to *store* the data. Oh, and you going to need a domain.

That said, you might be better of looking at the Wordpress templates. There are several that could handle what you want to do with minimal work on your part.

Re: Searchable database

Sorry but nope... 'cause the ones I use aren't set up to do what you want. I can tell you that most hosting services have templates available which does make the list a little shorter... Wordpress has thousands of themes.

Re: Searchable database

You can use software like PHPRunner to convert your MS Access database into a searchable web database. Might be an overkill for what you trying to build.
