Database setup for eventual page linking


Recommended Posts


I'm building a doument management site. Supposing I have a MySQL table with fields for document name and document description. An upload page copies the file via an upload script and file form control to a folder on the webserver (IIS).

An SQL Insert command enters into the table above whatever name and description the user has given. Next a search results page displays information from the table in a dynamic repeating table. In this table I want the doument name entry to be a link to the document itself.

Currently the user must enter the actual document name, including its file extension or the link will not function properly.

Is there a better way to go about all this?

Thanks, Mark
