    Eporting reports to be viewed online

    I have an old application which stores patients medical results in a MDB file. I want to upload these results online so patients can use their IDs and a given password to view their results online.

    I thought the best way is to have a MySQL database where I upload all the needed data to it and use PHP to do the following :
    1. Ask for user name and password.
    2. Display all visits dates for the patient in a combo box or whatever.
    3. Show results using HTML formatting.

    I am starting my Web Application Development and I started the following thread :

    http://www.vbforums.com/showthread.p...eb-development

    I do appreciate if anyone can give his 2 cents or anyone who know of a RAD tool to help me achieve what I want as fast as possible till I master what is needed to do it all by myself.

    Thank you very.

    If you need PHP help, this is not the place to ask it , in my opinion
    Utterly useless, but always willing to help

    As a finishing touch god created the dutch

    Hi Lab,

    use the Datareport and convert it to PDF with PDF-Creator. I think it would be better just
    to upload a Report rather the a whole DB-System.

    but that's up to you

    Thanks Chris but:
    How is that will work for users to log in and see their own specific results?
    Do you suggest storing PDFs on server in a specific way?

    Hi ,
    my wife's a Vet, she recives an Email with a Link to view a Report(Bloodresults etc..).
    She could also request to recive the Report per Email from the Lab., but she didn't want that.

    You can also print out the DataReport in HTML if you want, rather than PDF.
    If you need a sample how to create a Datareport, then let me know.

    regards
    Chris

    Many thanks Chris for your help.
    The problem is many of my software users do have websites and they need to offer a service to their patients to get their results (present and history results) online anytime they want!

    You are in right path.

    For converting the data from MDB file to MySQL, have a look at the answers listed here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/...plain-sql-file

    Use PHP or any other serverside language of your choice, and do the coding to validate login, fetch data from the database, etc.

    There are a ton of tutorials out there which will aid you. And if you encounter any issues, we might be able to throw some ideas. But be specific when you ask questions.
