I wanted to create a tips / faq page on my website and I was wondering, can I use the webcontrol activex component and set it to view that page on a from in my database?

Can someone show me how to do this or point me in the right direction of a tutorial that will teach me how to use the control in access.

Hello Andy1

Suppose you create a pop-up form with an WebBrowser control called acxBrowser, you can start with:

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Me.acxBrowser.Object.Navigate "http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp"
End Sub

When would you like the control to show your page?

I'm guessing when to form opens?

Then code such as this should do the job:

Private Sub Form_Load
   Me.myWebControl.Navigate "http://myUrl.com/myPage.html"
End sub

The code above, goes "behind" the form with the control...
