Thanks to the great integration of DMXzone Database Updater within DMXzone Server Connect you can easily insert/delete/update one or multiple records in your database.

Insert record

Use the insert type of action to insert new records into a database table.

Update one or multiple records

Use the update type of action to update existing records in a database table. You can also update multiple records.

Delete one or multiple records

Use the delete type of action to delete rows in a database table. You can also delete multiple records.

Records filtering conditions

The filters list contains conditions that are applied to database action when executed. There are basic conditions like =, <, > as well as advanced, such as contains, begins with, ends with and between. This way you can limit the database action to specific records. You can use the same value sources as with column values.

Server Connect action files

List of all the available Server Connect action files for the current website in Dreamweaver. Action files can be organized in folders for logical hierarchy.

Database Updater Action Executor

Database Action Executors let you run a database action with specific data assigned. So if you have defined to use a database action to update your database table columns, now with the Database Action Executor you can assign the values for those columns. That is why you define a database action globally to your site, so it can be reused, but define a specific executor on your current page where your data is in for example some form with fields.
