To clarify what I actually want, I'm running a university orchestra (as a volunteer) and using FM Pro 9 for the database of players and potential players (about 300 people at any one time). There is a table with a record for each person, with some fields that the person should fill in and update (current contact info, whether they'd like to play this term, etc.) So I want each person to be able to access the database using Instant Web Publishing to alter their own record. Once they have a FM account, this is fine, but creating new accounts is giving me trouble. Right now, people log in as a guest and are given a layout where they enter a new userid and password. Then I use a script to create their account and do a re-login. I dislike that the password shows in the clear, and would prefer the look of an html form. A custom dialog box (which allows password characters) would be fine, but that doesn't work with Instant Web Publishing.
I begin to realize that FM Server with php would do a nice job of this, but we can't afford that. I'm not afraid of trying php, ODBC, AppleScript, . . . I don't have experience with any of them, but I can ask for help locally.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
