Chris, Further to my earlier answer http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vb98/html/v bproVisDataVisdatavbp.asp gives a downloadable vb6 version along with a description of what it can do, While a google search gives quite a few results as well see http://www.google.co.uk/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=visdat a BUT this is probably the most relevant http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://support.microsoft.com: 80/support/kb/articles/Q252/4/38.asp&NoWebContent=1 explains how to modify VISDATA to support Access 2000 If you don't have any luck getting a compiled version let me know off list and I will see if I can get some time to make the mods and compile it for you!

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.
