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.

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.

You can try this
