HTML does not do this.  Your form needs to have an action, which would point to another program that will process the data being submitted by the form.  That program then takes the data and imports it into Access.

You can find CGI scripts if you do a Google search, but your Web hosting company will have to support it.  

The easier way to handle this is by using either PHP or ASP (depending on what your Web hosting company offers) and allow that to collect/import the data.  

This is not a quick explanation, as there are books written on this subject.

Just to get you started:

PHP: http://www.w3schools.com/PHP/php_db_odbc.asp

ASP: http://www.w3schools.com/ado/ado_connect.asp

Search Google for "PHP Access Database" or "ASP Access Database" and you will find more information about it than you will care to read.  The best bet would be to go to a local bookstore, peruse their books to find one that describes your needs, and use that as a reference.
