I am trying to make a website with a small Database. I have a database of 200 "homes", their "city?,? state" the "number of bedroom", "bathrooms" and "cost". I made this in Access 2002. I would like to upload it to a website I am putting together. I would like the database to work were a visitor can give the number of rooms, cost, city and state then hit a summit button than the results will show up. Then if them would like the visitor could go back and make changes to the Query and summit again. But I do not know how to get this to work. If someone would help me with a step by step on how this is done I would talk about paying for his or her help
Thank you

If you only have 200 homes, considering your database

City (36)
State (2)
Bedrooms (2)
Bathrooms (2)
Price (7)

Assuming 50 character records that's only 10k of data.
You might want to consider using a form and making it a static table in Javascript. It would be fast to download, provide instant response to your visitors, greatly reduce the load on your server, and be easy to maintain.

If you don't like the Javascript because all visitors might not have it enabled, just send them a static HTML table sorted by state/bedrooms....

If you are expecting the database to grow and more fields to be added then a database might be a good idea but you might want to re-think the Access 2000 approach.

MySql is free and quite capable.

Have you ever heard of the MLS.... they already provide this service for agents and brokers, as well as their clients. For a small monthly fee they give you all the code you need to provide your users with the same search options you mentioned. The best thing is you don't have to maintain the data.

I am a web designer,,, I just finsihed a site about two weeks ago that is using the MLS system.
Here is a link to her site: http://cambronhomes.mlsb.com/mls/search.cfm?clientid=1485

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
