    Well, although Webmerge is great it dosen't really give me the flexibility I want/need so I've decided to get a copy of "PHP and MySQL web development" from amazon so I could get strated learning the real stuff.

    After 2 months waiting for the book to make it overseas I finally received it and spent the last week reading through.. boy am I lost.. It looks like this is going to take longer than I thought.

    If I am correct, with MySQL/PHP I will be able to:

    -Modify a datafeed pushed to my FTP with a script
    -load that feed into a database with another script
    -Using PHP and several other scripts, pull out the information I need to build a site from the MySQL database
    -Automate this whole process.

    Is this more or less the process? I don't even know where to start...

    I use Access and ASP because I was already pretty familiar with Access before I ever tried to make a web page.

    I don't know if this hold true for MySql, but with Access I can work on the database on my computer, import the data by hand into Access and then upload the database to my web server.

    If you can do that with MySql, I would concentrate on doing that. Building a database and making your web pages access that data. Automating everything will make it so easy to update, but do that part last. It won't do you much good to have a datafeed download automatically if you don't have a page to display it on.

    I'm pretty new to all this datafeed stuff too and so far each feed has been different enough that I've had to do some hand manipulation on the data. And by that I mean, running queries to change some stuff around.

    I don't know if this helps!
