Hi Robert:
  Are you an experienced Web Programmer?  If so, using Microsoft Visual Web 
Developer, Visual Basic and Sql Server is one way to do something like that.
  The other way is to use something like MySql, PHP and some development IDE.  
If you are not a Web Programmer and have no DataBase Experience it may take 
time to get up to speed building a WebSite with a DataBase but it is certainly 
  Perhaps, if you have no experience and the context is of interest to someone 
on list, they might have another suggestion about storage and making your data 
available to the Educational community.

  Subject: Looking for suggestions for a database to use with a website


       I am about to receive over 11,000 pdf files that I want to put up on a 
website. These are images that when printed on capsule paper will produce 
tactile images. The idea is that a teacher or parent could look through the 
list, select a file and then place an order to have it printed. It has been 
suggested to me that I use a database for this sort of operation. I do have an 
Excel spreadsheet with descriptive information about each file. I am looking 
for suggestions regarding what database would be good to use. Thank you.
