I think you have a winner there with the xgarage.org all the nice knowledgeable people that have come forth with offers of help.

Thats the value of xoops, a place where when allowed people CAN get together and make things happen.

Good Luck,

Hi exbanious,

What about combining your tables with those from ISO (check the link at my last post)?
I could try it (in Access) if you send me the your tables (E-mail sent by PM).

Thanks
George


Elaberate, What on your mind?

This hit me last night while I was trying to sleep, lol

Yep I think this is the way to start an all.make.model database.

So how would the database be designed?

1)page loads by country.
2)then page by manufactures/makes.
3)then select one manufacture/make.
4)Then load all models.

Just not sure which one the ISO would relate to? Would it be make or country?

What do you think northern,gtop00,exbanious and anyone else thats can help?

Hi everybody,

I am already working on the "ISO Issue". It is really hard for someone like me who is not a programmer but I'll try my best.

The basic idea is to have the user to enter the VIN of the vehicle. The VIN should be split in a way that - with the help of the pre-existing data in the db - the system 'proposes' the vehicle model/MY/engine. By confirming, the VIN is matched with the given description. If not confirmed, the user has to enter model/MY/engine. Then, the system matches the VIN data with the given descriptions and stores them for next automated use.

This way, the db will be updated with any new input.

EDIT: Double posted/ deleted.

With more than 350 users online the system suffers... (393 some days ago, 357 now. I like it!)

Ahhhhhh

I see a problem with this.
do you know how many verables there are in the vins?
granted, you can have the 12 numbers and letters
1 would be the contry or origin, and 2 is the maker, ect.
but thats not going to tell you what model it is, and the engine size veries from makers and models
fron a 1.0L in the swift or metro to a 12L in a million dollor car.

chrysler can have the same 8th vin as a ford, or chevy, abd yet they are not the same item,

this might put a dent in your production
of take you even longer to make.
granted, i love the idea, but the verables......
WOW.....
