1) what exactly is SQL / MySQL ? I have seen tutorials using it with MS Access and stuff but have no idea what it is
2) If I access a MS Access Database using ASP do I HAVE to use SQL?
3) Where can I find a real in depth tutorial on using MS Access database with ASP, not a really advanced one, just for beginners that really explains all the commands (I am a bit slow you see!)
To truly learn try picking up either "ASP 2.0 for Beginners" or "ASP 3.0 for Beginners" from Wrox Press both of which are available at Amazon. Personally I would suggest you start with ASP 2.0 and then move to ASP 3.0 as the added benefits of the new version are over the head of most beginners.
