It really depends on what operating system your server runs on and what you already know.
If you are familiar with VB (ASPs are made up VBScript which is based on VB) and are in a Microsoft environment then I'd recommend using Active Server Pages (ASP) to do pages with MS Access or (ideally) MS SQL Server for data.
I haven't used PHP but I believe that it is similar in functionality to ASP - so this is really a matter of operating system and availability.
If you are not in a Microsoft environment you might want to consider MySQL for data storage.
The web application you want to develop would likely involve several things - HTML for the actual displays (most of which will be dynamically created by your scripting), ASP/PHP/etc to do the server-side scripting, and Access/SQL Server/MySQL/etc to store the data.

I'm more comfortable with MICROSOFT PLATFORM. So i think i must go with ASP and MS-ACCESS.

I'm not sure exactly what you're after.
There are a variety of approaches one can take to any 'web application'.
Since a lot of this is going to be new to you I'd suggest keeping things simple (at least at first).
You can apply the same problem solving and program planning techniques to a 'web application' that you would to any programming problem - you'll just be using a wider-variety of technologies.
You might try www.learnasp.com, www.planetsourcecode.com, or other online resources to find some tutorials or sample code. Online inventory and simlar topics should be very common.

you will also have to consider the version of ur operating system, if u are using win 98 on the server than u can use ODBC connectivity but if ur using win 2000 professional than u cant use ODBC, ull have to use OLEDB
