If you're using Access 97, from the design view of your form, choose Insert...ActiveX Control.  Scroll down on the list util you find "Microsoft WebBrowser Control".

This control has various methods and properties for controlling what web page is displayed.  Check the help file for further details.

Hope this helps

When you use Microsoft Internet Explorer. You can use the Dll and .ocx of it.

Try to find it with insert control.

I have done the same thing.

Create an unbound object frame and link in any html page in order to set all the properties.

To allow dynamic selection add a common dialog control and a command button

On the on click event of the button add

Private Sub cmdHtml_Click()

Me.cmdlg.ShowOpen
Me.oleHtml.SourceDoc = Me.cmdlg.FileName
Me.oleHtml.Action = 1 'acOLEcreatelink
End Sub

Make sure the ole control has locked set to No and enabled set to yes (which isn't the default)

This works, although it doesn't seem too hot at the pictures.
