What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Rishaan,

I don't think it is possible to open an Access database from a webbrowser control.   Perhaps one of the other experts could verify this as I may be wrong.

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?

I think Access does not integrate with Internet Explorer the way Word/Excel do.
