    Default any thoughts/ideas on...

    Just curious if any of you have any thoughts or ideas on a way to let users run searches or querys (as customizable as possible) against a DB without knowing exact specifics such as table names etc... <BR><BR>The only think I can think of is a few small dropdown menus but Im sure there has to be a better way.

    Is it an SQL server DB? If so, you could R&D "English Query" I&#039;ve been expirementing with it lately and the first results aren&#039;t perfect, but fairly good.<BR><BR>If it&#039;s not: for each select statement you have to now the tablename, so either you add the tablename in code dynamically or you use dropdownboxes. I would go for the dropdownboxes. It&#039;s the easiest to understand for your visitors IMHO.<BR><BR><BR>Peter
