Is it back-end or front-end?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 25, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net



As you know there are front-end tasks and back-end tasks associated with the Web. What could we consider ASP.NET, is it suited only for front-end tasks or it could reach to write any "sort of middle-layer system for a three-tier architecture"?

Excel as front end and SQL Server as back end

I read some documentation on the web today about using Excel as front end and SQL Server as back end. Actually, this link was pretty good: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321686 This is pretty good too: http://bytes.com/topic/sql-server/answers/486783-updating-sql-server-Table-using-excel This is very good; gets pretty complicated though: http://www.simple-talk.com/sql/t-sql-programming/sql-server-excel-workbench/ I’m still pretty confused about how it all works. I found a sample of VBA online that lets me import a couple columns from a Table: Sub Import() ' Declare the QueryTable object Dim qt As QueryTable ' Set up the SQL Statement sqlstring = "select LastName, FirstName from Employees" ' Set up the connection string, reference an ODBC connection connstring = _ "ODBC;DSN=Northwind;UID=;PWD=;Database=Northwind" ' Now implement the connection, run the Query, and add ' the results to the spreadsheet starting at row A1 With ActiveSheet.QueryTables.Add(Connection:=connstring, Destination:=Range("A1"), Sql:=sqlstring) .Refresh End With End Sub That’s pretty slick, actually! However, I’m thinking I need to use Excel to LINK to SQL Server, not COPY or IMPORT. Basically, I’m trying to find an easy way to use Excel as a front end interface so that a user may

Post back puzzle


Hi, I have a website where the user makes a selection from a combo box and it then fills a couple text boxes with text based upon the selection. I'm sure as you know it could take a second for the text to appear in the text box due to the post back. I know there is no way to make it instantanious, so what I would like to do it fill the text box with somthing like "Loading Info..." so the user does not type in it while the information is loading.

If you would like to see what I mean please go to this page: www.epiclinks.com/create.aspx and mess around with the combo boxes and You'll see what I mean.

What I would like to do is have it do a post back to write "Loading Info..." and then do another post back to fill it in based upon their selection. How would I do this?

I'm up for anything, so if you have a better solution than that please let me know.

Web Security: Putting a Secure Front End on Your COM+ Distributed Applications


The Internet requires that developers provide a different security model for clients than is used on a closed network. Because it would be too resource-intensive for both the client and server to prove their identity to each other, you need to look at other ways to ensure secure communications. This article covers the options, from digital certificates to public and private key encryption to Secure Sockets Layer and Web certificates. The discussion covers the installation of certificates in Microsoft Internet Information Services along with other options specific to IIS. This article was adapted from Keith Brown's Programming Windows Security (Addison-Wesley), due out in July 2000.

Personal view reverts back to default after updating properties of item


I am working with a company that has 1 site collection with several sub sites.  I have built 3 document libraries with workflow in 3 different sub sites and all behave as expected.  I have one site where ALL libraries do something perplexing;

If you are in a custom personal view and you go into the properties of a document and then exit (update or not, does not matter) it reverts back to the default view of that library. 

Has anyone seen this?  is there an option when creating an album that could cause this?

thanks in advance for any input on this odd issue.

Under Construction on new Web Front End


Our MOSS 2007 SP1 Farm is working fine. We are adding web front ends to replace existing WFEs running on end of life hardware.

I installed SharePoint and ran SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard. Everything completed successfully, no errors.

When I point my browser to the new WFE using my hosts file, I do not see SharePoint, I see the  IIS Under Construction page.

What have I missed?


Model Binding the values in an HTML Table back to Controller / Model


Currently, I am working with ASP.NET MVC1 and am still learning about Model Binding and how values from a View are passed back to the Controller / Model. Specifically, I want take an existing Model, create a Table and populate the Rows of the Table, allow the user to edit some fields and pass it back.

In my example, I have a Class called "Ingredient" which has 4 public accessors:  Name, Barcode, Amount, and Unit

<%@ Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Views/Shared/Site.Master" Inherits="System.Web.Mvc.ViewPage<IEnumerable<MvcACE.DomainModel.Entities.Ingredient>>" %>

<% using (Html.BeginForm("SubmitOrder","MyController"))
{ %>

<% if (Model != null)
foreach (var item in Model)
{ %>
<td><%= Html.Encode(item.Name)%></td>
<td><%= Html.Encode(item.Barcode)%></
