The simplest way is to use MS Access's Save As HTML.

You should post this question to CGI area!
I think that is what you are searching for.

1. Create app which have access to data via odbc (I see you done it already)
2. On some button click (or whatever), you can EASILY generate HTML keeping in mind such easy things like basic HTML directives.

CStdioFile file( name, flags, etc );
WriteHtmlHeader( file );
while( !odbc_base.is_empty() )
{
   CSomeCoolRecord rec; odbc_get_record( rec );
   WriteRecordLineIntoHTML( file, rec );
}

The other way is to register Moniker object in Windows which serves HTML requests, so, when your base is calling via HTML (from IE), you can pass back formatted (the same way as above) data back to caller. Check "monikers" section in SDK etc.

Oops, more to my comment above: in first case you should launch IE (or whatever browser you use) given your tempfilename as parameter, or issue DDE call with "open" method.

hmm, or you can use IE as activex object and insert it into your app dialog and pass filename as parameter of calling activex via automation.
