  Asked By: Pallavi    Date: Jun 26    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 947

I would like to display data onto the sharepoint site from the database
table(ex: display products list from products table in db). After displaying the
data when the user selects a product and does a check out i need to update the
quantity in the database table.

Can we do using web parts or any other better approach.

As I am new to this sharepoint, So Can anybody suggest some ideas how to do it
and also any useful links or information will be appreciated.

Try using DataView. If you use FrontPage you will find it under
Insert/Database/dataview. This will bring data  from the database  but with no
control whatsoever. So next thing would be for you do is to write some code to
give the page some actionpower. ASP.NET VB or ASP.NET C#.
If you have access to infopath and a web  service that could be a solution. I
tried that one but i failed to write the web service. In the end i made my form
in ASP.NET C# .
I will look into this and if i have a better idea i will let you know.

Yes , it depends on what licencing agreement you have with Microsoft.
Nevertheless, the licence for Frontpage is like 100$/host. Not that much when
you compare to the cost of SPS. I really cannot imagine my life without it. It's
so usefull that i consider it to be priceless.
