Why linking to NDC search result pages is unwise

    This draft database was created and is maintained using MS Access® software.  Each time an update to the original dataset is made, the program outputs an entirely new set of individual webpages (in the name format NDCPage###.html), each representing a record of the new dataset, overwriting obsolete files of the same name.  After different updates, the same records in the dataset may not be represented by the same names on these webpages.  Thus, permanent hotlinks on other websites to any of these pages will not necessarily retrieve information about the same vaccine product.  

     To provide more sophisticated web-accessible database search and formatting capabilities will require identifying resources for additional software and programming services.
