SQL 7 also has an XML plug-in which allows you to store SQL queries in XML
format and automatically output the results of that query in a well formed
XML. It is said to be much faster than ASP + COM, and seems to be fairly
stable when we've used it.

On another note, I would migrate from Access anyway - SQL 7 is much more
friendly to rapid application development than its predecessors, so you
might as well use the more powerful and faster SQL (or Oracle) server
(assuming you can afford the license, of course *grin*)

| hi,,
| I am into a project where we have lot of content. In fact it is a portal 
| site. a IT related news tutorials etc are there.
| So far we were using ASP and MS ACCESS for our contents. ie, we were 
| storing all the file in our database. and depending on user request we are

| displaying to them. If we convert them into XML, then do you think it will

| be a good move or not. We have around 1500 articles in our site. I want to

| know wheter XML is a right technology for large amount of content or not? 
| If it is not then please suggest any other technology.
