There are a lot of good books on SQL. Just stop by your local computer book
store. I think there is even a "for dummies" book on the subject which is
great for beginners. I hesitate to recommend one specifically since people
tend to learn faster with different books, depending on that person. As for
getting web pages to access an SQL database, the easiest way is by designing
an ASP page with scripting to open up the database via an ODBC DSN. How it
is set up really depends on what you want the page to do. I spotted some
sample scripted pages at the Emerald ftp site, so that may be a good place
to start.
