Converting mdb to html

I have a database with just the one table but a number of forms....

Is it possible to convert this database to HTML? or just a form?...

Many thanks,

Bob...

Hi bob_the_builder,
You can export the table as an html page.
Select the table in the database window. Then use Fil>export and choose html as the file type.

It's not quite what I were after... I wanted to have the form that our users access, accessable via a browser, this just displays the results.....???

Many thanks,

What you're talking about sounds like a DAP - Data Access Page.  It is basically an Active Server Page (ASP) built by Access with the connection information already 'installed' in the page.  

Keep in mind that Access is a desktop app, and while it works great for limited multi-user environments, it really is not made to serve as a web database engine.  It IS possible, though, and easily be done with ASP/VBScript and some basic HTML skills.

If you want to create an intercative form athen you have to use web page development tools.

Access includes Data Access Pages (DAPs)which might be usable otherwise you have to go to proper web tools such as ASP or a developement tool such as dreamweaver.

Look in Help for DAPs, but you should be aware that they are not widely used and you probably won't find a lot of help in these forums.

True true!  If I needed a DAP, I'd just program an ASP instead and keep Access' little wizards from screwing with my project.  :)
