Hiya Paul

Welcome to the Serif forums.

You can create databases in the last few versions of WebPlus

GO to Tools > Database Merge > Create Database.

See the help files for more information.

Hiya thanks for that tip. This database merge is it like a database with
Search engine etc.

If you go to a website called scramble.nl which is an aviation
Website they have a searchable database. This is the type of
Database I would like to create.

I'm afraid the term "database" in WP is ever so slightly misleading - it is a flat-file database used to mail merge either page elements or entire pages prior to uploading a completed site. The WP database is not a dynamic one and does not reside on the server, so no, you can't query it to provide search results.

Marilyn - the OP wants an interactive, searchable database online.

This is a possible data source for the merge operation I mentioned before. It is NOT a way to put an interactive, searchable database online, which is not possible with WP. You have to do that outside the program.
