                  Perl can do this (mute since this is already known).
                  --

                  I assume that when using web browser to search said database that it is a
                  "form" (where the user interactivity is) where user's query is entered --
                  and that it would then be one of the "methods" ie for example cgi, perl_cgi,
                  perl_dbi, cold fusion markup language, python_+_whatever, asp,

                  Didn't Laurie say it's asp?

                  But it's not to matter for what Laurie seeks here, really, (as to whatever
                  the "back end" (A.K.A method(s)) is.

                  The action (that's needed here) is in getting the form filled with the
                  search query ? I guess?

                  Or ?? does Laurie need to come up with a backend (and/or entire) method so
                  as with which to accomplish the searching of a database as in right now
                  currently there is no (via www) searching of the data base.

                    are (outputted as) dynamically written html.

                    Laurie wants to implement boolean.

                    Laurie, how is the actual searching IOW what brand is the database

                    IOW different types/brand of databases likely have need to accept certain
                    type of query

                    IOW does the database itself support boolean (if not then something need
                    detect when two words and divvy it up into two separate queries, assembling
                    all of the output results together.

                    Likely your database supports boolean but that you seek how to query it in
                    boolean.

                    Message 9 of 30 , Aug 4, 2008
                      Hi,
                      That is a good source, but maybe not for beginners? I went through this a couple of years ago (ASP - Queries - MS Access...), and found out that the main thing to master is the querystring. There are ways to have the querystring that is sent to the db displayed to the user (don't ask me now, I'm no longer active in that field); if you enable this you can actually see what the exact searchstring contains. That helped me a lot; it gave me insight in the inner workings of the whole process.
                      The form that handles the user input results in a string that must be passed to the database. And this needs to be (fine-)tuned. You'll need to do some learning (lots of websites available), otherwise you have to look for alternatives, but do not give up to soon...
                      It may help to change the string within the asp-page itself (append wildchards for instance) - in order to get better results. If you know exactly what the string should be (you can use trial and error) you have to find a way to have this string generated by means of the interaction with the user. Without actually seeing the asp code, and not knowing what the connection is, it is hard to help you out.
                      I found the 4guysfromrolla-website very helpful. Another tool that I used to master the database techniques was from Roman Koch (http://www.romankoch.ch/capslock/editor.htm%c2%a0or%c2%a0http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/110999-1.shtml). Play with it and try to see how you can benefit from the example-code. It may be old, but I reckon that will not be a big problem.
                      Frontpage is the MS tool that may help you further: it may be used to generate db-connections and instructions in asp directly. I've followed some tutorials about the Frontpage database wizard and learnt a lot from that (see a.o. http://www.frontpagehowto.com/examples.asp). I must acknowledge that I used a tool to have all superfluous code stripped automatically (Notetab was very helpful in that respect). So: I built some code with fronpage, had that stripped in order to look at the resulting querystring, and most of the time I edited the resulting asp-page (but you have to know what you are doing, if you do it that way...).
                      Hope this helps.
                      Hugo

                          Thanks for the resource, I got it LATE last night and will check it out
                          today..



                          Alan,

                          MS Access is the what I'm using for the DB construction. I know NOTHING
                          about SQL or MySQL. or any other methods.. I know enough about Access to be
                          DANGEROUS.. I'm using Office 2007 but my server doesn't support that version
                          so the DB is in 2003 version.



                          Yes I am using a "form" within my "asp" page for the search..



                          Hugo.

                          I'm using Dreamweaver. I have FrontPage but for work purposes/support I'm
                          using Dreamweaver as my webpage editor.. The tip you gave me about the query
                          string. we did something once about using a "+" for the end of the search
                          string but that was when we had a drop down menu I believe. but I will go
                          back and check into my other resources, thank for the memory Jog! J



                          I'll also check out the other resources and tips that you offered, I
                          appreciate it..

                          I'm getting all of these search suggestions and I'm like.. OH YEAH. I said
                          early on, I even have a mental block on what to or how to properly search
                          not quite knowing what I should use to google with.. And have obtained an
                          education from these searches as well..



                          Thank you everyone for all of your help, recommendations and suggestions..
                          I'll keep you posted as I learn (if I can teach this old dog new tricks
                          hehehe) J

                                At Google, I entered the next 4 words: boolean asp microsoft access

                                http://databases.aspfaq.com/database/how-do-i-handle-bit/boolean-columns.html

                                at there if you scroll slightly down can seen (asp) form (boolean search)
                                but it uses "post" instead of (alternative, maybe) "get", evidently uses 3
                                asp pages to achieve the query AND it has at least slight bit of SQL in it
                                too.

                                Isn't this fun? (don't ask me, I know nothing about it the asp, access).

                                I did do once, some time ago, I wrote a Perl--cgi interface to a

                                http://www.mysql.com/

                                database

                                which is not Microsoft Access. not asp.

                                on an irrelevant note: but I don't know if Mysql supports boolean or not.
                                --

                                Perl abstracts (keeps details of the SQL away from the Perl programmer)
                                which my point is here that a Perl programmer not need to know SQL (Perl
                                generates the SQL) for what I was doing the aforementioned Perl--cgi--mysql.

                                There's got to be perhaps some GUI app that abstracts (make it easier, more
                                user friendly) as opposed to geeky, machine_y like when need to do (what are
                                we doing here?)

                                I guess (the goal) it is to construct an (boolean) asp query to query an
                                access database

                                http://forums.aspfree.com/code-bank-54/advanced-boolean-search-indexing-43470.html

                                turned up when I now just added abstract onto the google search, a new
                                google search, thus:

                                abstract boolean asp microsoft access

                                (methinks google getting confused on that one [no abstract for/as a word
                                returned]

                                But it did turn up a code bank forum "advanced boolean search" at aspfree
                                (oh, it appears that it may be a forum about the link Hugo posted about the
                                Query.asp) where can ask questions.

                                  An ASP page, much like a perl cgi page or a PHP page in fact may contain
                                  many pages and coding to have it do something.

                                  If you just hit the page with no post or get information provided, then
                                  it displays a page. You can use view source to see the content
                                  generated by the ASP page, but contrary to what someone is suggesting,
                                  you cannot see what is in the ASP pages code. To repeat you see only
                                  the generated html -- and what is generated is controlled by what input
                                  (or no input) is given by the user.

                                  If you look at the ASP page, you will see a series of "choices" or
                                  branches in the coding. It will say something like:

                                  if there is information provided by our form then process that, create a
                                  result and display the result

                                  or

                                  if there is not information provided by our form then just display the
                                  basic page with the search form

                                  There may be many other branches. We have written entire sites in one
                                  script so the page address is the same for every page. The only way to
                                  see this coding is to look in the raw coding of the ASP page. First
                                  MAKE A BACKUP, and then using notetab, open your ASP page. Start
                                  looking around. You will find a part that ultimately generates the
                                  query. That is the part we are looking for. We can then tweak what is
                                  being asked for.

                                  Your function (part of the ASP program) that builds results isn't very
                                  well developed, because it does not tell me no results found. It still
                                  outputs the table heading, but the table is empty of results.

                                  I believe something like this in your ASP is where you are headed.
                                  http://www.asp101.com/samples/viewasp.asp?file=db_search_multi.asp

                                  Again there are more coders in the clips or in the scripts lists than
                                  there probably are here (no offense intended, but I think you'll find
                                  the heavy coders in one of those two lists) and/or in off topic.

                                    At Google, I entered the next 4 words: boolean asp microsoft access

                                    at there if you scroll slightly down can seen (asp) form (boolean search)
                                    but it uses "post" instead of (alternative, maybe) "get", evidently uses 3
                                    asp pages to achieve the query AND it has at least slight bit of SQL in it
                                    too.

                                    Isn't this fun? (don't ask me, I know nothing about it the asp, access).

                                    I did do once, some time ago, I wrote a Perl--cgi interface to a

                                    http://www.mysql.com/

                                    database

                                    which is not Microsoft Access. not asp.

                                    on an irrelevant note: but I don't know if Mysql supports boolean or not.

                                    Perl abstracts (keeps details of the SQL away from the Perl programmer)
                                    which my point is here that a Perl programmer not need to know SQL (Perl
                                    generates the SQL) for what I was doing the aforementioned Perl--cgi--mysql.

                                    There's got to be perhaps some GUI app that abstracts (make it easier, more
                                    user friendly) as opposed to geeky, machine_y like when need to do (what are
                                    we doing here?)

                                    I guess (the goal) it is to construct an (boolean) asp query to query an
                                    access database

                                    turned up when I now just added abstract onto the google search, a new
                                    google search, thus:

                                    abstract boolean asp microsoft access

                                    (methinks google getting confused on that one [no abstract for/as a word
                                    returned]

                                    But it did turn up a code bank forum "advanced boolean search" at aspfree
                                    (oh, it appears that it may be a forum about the link Hugo posted about the
                                    Query.asp) where can ask questions.
