( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Thankyou all for your responses (overwhelming). I have been investigating the Tk module to use as the Frontend for this database. This is a Microsoft SQL 2000 Database and I have creating a connection using the DBI and DBD::ODBC module combination. We will be using the MSDE version of Microsoft SQL as it runs on a non server windows platform (its also free). This is for my final project of my degree. I am just wanting to create an interface to do basic inserts and searches of the database. I was wanting to use Perls Chart abilities to create reports as well as the SENDMAIL module to create an ordering system.It seems like a lot of overhead required (eg installing web server) to create a CGI perl based interface. In addition, this system requires the need to create reports based on database data. Can i integrate Microsoft Office applications? Is there an alternative? Tk looks nice, but a lot of work compared to a CGI interface through a novice perl programmer eyes. Thankyou for your expertise.
