>I want to organize information into a searchable database on my site, and don't want to pay big bucks to have it done. Does anyone know where I can learn this myself, and how long will it take? Or, do you have any other suggestions.This is wehre the information is on the site.

If your web server is running Microsoft IIS you can use Database Access Component to access a ODBC database of all your listings. It is very simple to write server side scripts to provide a web interface to search the database and return a URL. Or even better, instead of having a page for each state with the listings, you can have one page which the web server can populate with the information requested, based on the state or any other info and it can be sorted by any field. It will all look the same as you have it now, except the info will come from the database, instead of seperate pages. Its easy for the user to search and organize and easier for you to update, since you just add or remove records to the database. Get the book "Professional Active Server Pages 2.0". Or if you want we can do it for you, for a very reasonable price, visit us at:

If you are not running Microsoft IIS server software you can get third party ASP extensions to add to most other server software and install the Microsoft Database Access Component, go to the site to find out more.

Or we can host the database for you on our MS IIS server and integrate it transparently into your existing site.
