Run Access Macro from ASP Page?

I am creating new web based user interface for MS Access database. Some of the old maintenance procedures are stored as MS Access Macros. Is there any method to do it (execute) inside ASP page?

I found something which is working on PWS, but I am not sure about this solution.

<%
Dim acS
Dim acCmd
Set acS   = CreateObject ("access.Application")
acS.OpenCurrentDatabase "D:\www\Inetpub\scripts\asp.mdb"
Set acCmd = acS.DoCmd
acCmd.RunMacro "TestMacro"
%>

Does this macro require any user intervention? If it does, I wouldn't even attempt to run it (even if you can) unless somebody is at the server to respond.

This works for me, runs everyday (using Access 97)
Visible can be true or false depending on rather you want to see access start or not. On IIS you also have to set the "Allow out of process components" to yes  in order to run access,,or excel etc.



<% Dim objAcc
Set objAcc=Server.CreateObject("Access.Application")
objAcc.Visible=true  'or false'
objACC.OpenCurrentDatabase "d:\webdb\steelers.mdb"
objAcc.DoCmd.RunMacro "Macroname"
objAcc.CloseCurrentDatabase
Set objAcc=Nothing%>
