Rishaan,

Just a point of clarification on my last post.  I know you can publish Access data to a web page that users can then interact with.  You could then point the webbrowser control navigation to that page.   However, I don't believe that is what you were looking for.   Again, maybe another expert could verify this.

Is there no window registry fix availble for Access as for Excel/word/powerpoint at http://forums.techarena.in/windows-software/1321805.htm ?

It is my understanding that you are trying to browse to an existing Office document and open it in a web browser control.  I do not believe that you can open an Access database this way.   Again, I may be wrong on this.

Have you tested trying to open Access from the Webbrowser control?    Does it open at all?
