The database itself is easy. The hard part is programming the website to interact with the access database.

At least for me...as I know nothing about web design.

If you find a person who will help with the web connection, I can help with the database.

Hi,

It's not my area of expertise, but is information about the location of such detained individuals in this situation at any given time in the public domain? If not I was wondering about the implications of having this system online in terms of confidentiality and information security?

e.g. the booking process, the potential visitor must at some point request who they are wanting to visit and as such there must be may be some sort of validation of the request against a list of current detainees.

In both aspects there must be inherent safeguards online to protect the sensitive information which is in itself a mammoth task in my view.

Just some thoughts.

Hi

Just a quick pointer - if you're looking for help on the web side then it would help to know what scripting etc you have available on your web site (i.e. does it use ASP or PHP etc etc) so that people will know if they have the required skills?

Hi

To be honest I would check with your employer first in that case as they will probably have their own ideas regarding what you're trying to do (i.e. either they'll do it internally or something) - especially due to the nature of what you're trying to achieve.

Cheers
Martin
