need a site with user updates

I have MX studio 8. I am designing (new to this) a site for a school and need a system for the admin to update pages containing reports, diaries, galleries, etc. Some have said I need a CMS but this is a DB system! I need to change documents e.g. files to show in web pages witout hacking the pages themselves. The host can support ASP (not .net) and Access.
Is'nt it really just a case of uploading document files? Of course I have Contribute but I'm not sure this is the relevant tool.

Help and advice appreciated.

is the facility for someone to subsitute new document files for existing ones then that can be done via an ordinary FTP program.

Provided the filenames stay the same, and the person concerned knows which server directories to use, the system will work perfectly - existing hyperlinks will point to the new files.

If you want to enable others to alter the actual page content however you'll have to use a CMS.
