Hi

I have an Access database that sends automated reports every day through Outlook using VBA.
I want to build an online version in ASP.net for data capture. My problem is that the VBA code won't run on a web server.
How do I get around this. Do I host the tables in make it talk to my Access database on my computer? Not sure what the best route is.

I would recommend porting the scripts over to a classic asp application, as vbScript is very similiar in syntax to classic asp. ASP.Net is not, and it would require a code rewrite to move it this kind of platform. Just do a search for "classic asp tutorials" and that should be enough to get you started.
