putting a database on an existing website

Is there a way to put a database such as Access or Paradox on an existing website so that guests can query it for data, but not edit it?

RE: putting a database on an existing website

Yes. You will need ASP, ASP.Net, DAPs, or (something like) Citrix.

RE: putting a database on an existing website

If you use Access you will have implement security on the database which will cause all users (even non web-based ones) to have to login to the database. Access is also not really the best choice for a web backend. If cost is an issue, consider MySQL or some other free database that is better desinged to be accessed from the web. You will need to use something else (ASP, C#, etc) to create the user interface. And do not do this until you read up on database security and SQL Injection attacks.
