I've been working with vb.net for over a year and I've found solutions for everthing in the forums.
Now I need to access my Project solutions from a mobile phone or from a PC. And the simplest idea I've figured out is the make a web-page so I can update the results via ftp.
Now the questions are :
What's the easiest way to update a few fields on a web page?
Shall I create an html file from my vb.net solution changing those fields?
Is there a different way - apart from the web - of accessing those few fields?

Thank you very much for your hints.

I'm afraid that you're post doesn't really make too much sense. Are you simply saying that you want to use VB.NET to create a web site and you want that web site to work with data from a database or is it something else?

I'm saying that an easy way to access data would be to create an html file in vb.net that contains the results of my calculations, using
Dim sw As StreamWriter= File.CreateText("c:\Temp\try1.html")
sw.WriteLine(fieldHeader.ToString)
sw.WriteLine(fieldxx.ToString)

...

and I don't know if there is a simpler o better way to do it. And that's why I'm asking, because I do NOT know.

The whole application must read some data from an ftp-site every minute or so (I still don't know the frecuency). It performs some calculations (around 2000 code lines, so far) and now I've been requested to show the results on a mobile.

Thanks for your help.
