How to use expression web 4 to build a web page to insert into sql server 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am new to Expression and asp, in the past I have used php and mysql for database sites but I am now moving over to asp. I would like to be able to create a form on a web page that takes info on a book, for example title, author, isbn, keywords and then enter this into a sql server 2008 database. Can anyone point me in the right direction for a tutorial? I have searched around and come up with lots of stuff on c# and visual studio but not web pages.

    Any help much appreciated

  • Take a look at these tutorials:

    And you are going to want to be using Visual Web Developer Express (It's a free download) for your database work. It's a sister program to Expression Web in that it works well hand-in-hand with Expression, but is it far superior (I say essential) for database work. In addition to facilitating database work, VWD has many of the features that Expression has, but not all of them.
