Thanks Eric - this is leading me to another problem, which I guess I can no longer ignore....My site is connected to the database fine and its working well - but the recordset through dreamweaver is showing as empty, so something is not set up properly within dw... in the MySQL Connection pop-up I have
Usrnm, pw and db name are correct, but I'm getting a 404 error code saying that possible reasons include that there is no db running on the server - or the testing server specified for this site does not map to the http:..... URL. Please verify the URL Prefix maps to the root of the site.
Yet - the site is working fine.....
I guess I could change the recordset using phpmyadmin - but I think I need to figure this out as I move forward.
Thanks again for helping me work out the kinks in my knowledge- the site is turning out very nicely indeed.
