Database Question
I have a question about the type of database that can be used for DBMAN. I know that fields should be separated by a symbol such as "|" but is there any way to use a Microsoft Access Database(.mdb)?

My database has over 10,000 records so I am really not looking forward to changing them one by one. :)

Nope...the standard version of DBMAN only works with ASCII flat text files. It does not work with Access. What you could do is EXPORT the tables into a flat file and then UPLOAD the flat file as a .db file to your web server. Although this is a lot of work and effort.

You should consider DBMAN SQL...which does work with MSQL or MySQL if you access to them.
