Hi Team,
Not sure if this is the correct NG for this question so please feel free to refer me elsewhere.

Using D10.2.1 32Bit, Advantage Database Server Apps.

I have never looked at nor considered it in the past but now a Customer has asked if I can put an Internet front end
on a cut down version of their application that an external user can access/use via their own browser, to enter data
directly into the Customer's DB. The Customer doesn't want the headache of maintaining an app that would have to be
sent/updated to each of their Customers if/when a change is implemented.

Basic requirements are Log in, data entry (includes look up tables), file uploading (e.g. JPG or PDF Purchase order),
etc, all the usual data entry stuff.

I figure this has been addressed before by one or more of you gurus so I go to the source and ask the question...

Bearing in mind my lack of experience in this area, what is/are your recommendations for something along these lines?

Regards & TIA,
Ian

As Chad mentioned, it sounds like you are looking for Intraweb (which is included with Delphi).

There is also a newsgroup here for your questions. See the forum [Delphi.Third Party Tools.Intraweb]
