Whats the most practicle way to build an on-going, accumulative
database of imported databases?


Couldnt I add the DB\'s locally on my Excel spreadsheet and then UL the
updated DB file to the \'Master DB\'?


BTW, Im using PHP MyAdmin.

Im a real newbie on doing this....so please be detailed.

Thanks in advance!

Why would you need a database of databases? Please describe what you\'re trying to do.

Here is my goal:

I have (1) domain name that will have on it, several online stores that each have there own DB and admin.

On the main page, is a search tool that is for searching the product descriptions and product titles of all the individual stores.

Rather than have this search tool query several seperate DBs, I would rather have it query just one master DB.

Im a real newbie with all this.....so if someone has a better way to accomplish the searching of seperate DBs....let me know! (:

The main site URL: http://books724.com

The URL of one of the stores: http://books724.com/bookstore1

Im using a search program called \'Isearch\'

Its at http://books724.com/isearch

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

Bret
