This is *really* good news I have always been in a dilema to which forum to post my db questions either the php or microsoft related forums.
Which may instigate the question of "what is a database"... Our own database is net concerned with either PHP or any Microsoft software. Rather it is an ASCII flat file system with proprietory indices accessed by an HTML front-end through CGI scripts written in Perl (just to wet appetites).
Generally speaking, a database would be some type of RDMS software (such as mySQL, postGreSql, Access, Filemaker, Oracle, MSSQL) which can access data through standard SQL queries.
But that's generally speaking.
