Display access database information in HTML / Javascript.

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
My ultimate goal is to have data from an Access DB dynamically updating a Vista Gadget. Looking at it so far the coding is done in a HTML file and uses Javascript.

I am new to javascript and wondered if i could display the result on a web page that is dynamically linked to an Access Database?

I have a DB with a form that basically is displaying totals. The Text boxes on the form have a Control Source of =DCount("*","STATS","Brand = 'Brand1'") that return the total number of brands = "Brand1"

The Form also has an 'On Timer' event to refresh the form every minute.

Can this be transoposed onto a web page using Javascript / HTML to display the info and refresh it automatically (the refresh is a less important issue but if possible then i'll use it)

Unles theres an easier way to display Access Data in a gadget then thats great.
