Hello,<BR><BR>Lets say I have a form on a web page which sends its info to an ASP page which then writes the info to a database. Furthermore, this could happen at anytime.<BR><BR>If I wanted to read the entries in the database, could I just download the database file and read it or, if data was being written to it at the same time, would the database be corrupted?<BR><BR>Also, what if I wanted to add items to the database file but not through the original web page. Is it alright to just down load the file, make the changes before uploading it again?<BR><BR><BR>Yours, Ian.
