Database in Access?
I want to make a database with Access in ASP.net but have a place on database where one of the fields is a link to download a software
Name Type Tested Link
Calculator C++ Yes calculator.zip
Phonebook VB Yes phone.zip
basically somehting like this but when they click on calculator or phone.zip it will allow them to download the source code.

you can do this in Access, not sure about using it on a web app... in Access what you'd need for the column with "calculator.zip" is a Hyperlink Column...
open the table in datasheet view
under 'Insert' select "Hyperlink Column'
click in the cell (in the Hyperlink column) to place a hyperlink in
under 'Insert', select 'Hyperlink'
select "Existing file or webpage' on the left, and locate the file to open
not sure how to do this in ASP, but there's probably something similar using a DataGrid...
