My website was created with Frontpage 03. I have a form for visitors to fill out requesting quotes for my services. Since the hosting company, GoDaddy, doesn't have an exchange server, I can't have the form e-mail me the results. The data, then, is stored in a Microsoft Access Database. To cheeck for updates, I have to:

  • Open Frontpage 03
  • Open my site
  • Have Frontpage open my remote site
  • Download and overright the old .MDB from the hosting server to my own PC's Hard Drive
  • Open the database to check for any updates

I have to do all that...EVERY SINGLE DAY. Since I usually don't have updates, I'm wasting a LOT of time. Is there any easier way to do this? Surely there must be. I thought about writing a batch file that would download the database for me to my desktop or something, but since I don't know how to make the connection for the download, I don't know how to write the code for such a thing.

Any suggestions?
