I am slowly but surely making the transition from designer to developer, but so many question still loom.
I want to create a simple quiz and that part is no problem. What is really going to get me is the back-end part. Looking for opinions on how to go about it.
Here is my vision:
At the beginning a standard form with fields for the person's name... email... etc. (with error checking)
After competion of the form they go on to the questions.
25 questions total ( I got this part down fine) I was thinking of using an xml file to populate the questions.
At the completion of the quiz, they submit it and it is sent to a database of some sort ( I am thinking of Access since it will probably run on an NT system). This will include all the fields from the form as well as their answers.
Also would like to be able to query the database and have it pull up those people submitted with the most correct answers.
Here really are my questions:
Is what I am wanting to do feasible?
Am I going about it the right way?
Are there any good tuts out there on connecting flash to access databases?
I guess this question is as much about databases as it is the flash, but when combining the two, am I going about it correctly?
I know much of this is very fundamental for many of you, but if you could take the time to point me in the right direction I would be truly greatful!
Thank you in advance to anyone who takes the time to reply.
