Hi Chris I'm not familiar with PHP but visdata was an application that would
allow the user to open a database application, view the tables, edit data,
create tables etc. AS for VB you will need the runtime libraries but I
believe they are freely available.

Hope that explains it.

Hmm.. I'm not familiar with VB so does windows have support built in
already to use this? I mean, I don't have Visual Basic the "program"

Or maybe this is meant to be run through the server?

Btw i'm using IIS5.
