Data Access Pages - Access 2003

I've been asked to set up data access pages for a client who requires users to be able to modify his database on his intranet. We cannot use a fe-be setup as most of the pc's available will not have access or a runtime version of access installed.

I agreed DAP seemed like the easiest method to achieve this, it will be a very small insertion of data to be sent to the database. I am very experienced in access however it's been a few years since I touched DAP and on just trying it on my own system I am not having any luck.

I am running access 2002 on an XP machine and when I try to create a DAP using the wizard I get through all the options and right at the very end I see 'The wizard is unable to create your data access page.'

If I try to create a new DAP in design view I get a different message 'The OLE server isn't registered. To register the OLE server, reinstall it.'

Not sure what that means, I want to try and get this ironed out so I am well versed in what I am doing before visiting the client on site.

I'd like to avoid having to write pages myself in ASP to do this task as the client is a novice user and wants me to show him how to do this himself in the future and I'm not about to try and teach someone that in one day!

Any assistance is much appreciated.

Not sure, what OS are you running..?
What version of Access are you running

As you know DAP were deprecated in native access 2007 format DB's (.accdb)
So if you want to create a DAP, then you need to save the DB in the 2003 format. (.mdb)

It is windows XP and Access 2002, it is an old file which has always been an mdb. If I was in a newer version I wouldn't even get as far as I did as the pages wizard would not be available

I spent about an hour on google before posting here, it's full of guides and walkthroughs of how to set up DAPs, setting them up would be easy I know how to do that, but it isn't working and the error messages are not useful in helping me find out why. Any trouble shooting sites I try all just direct me to sharepoint which is not what I want.

After a significant amount of digging I found the culprit, triedit.dll was corrupt, downloaded a fresh version from microsoft, registered it and all was well.

Thanks for the reply and sorry if I wasted anyones time!
