I would like a macro to be executed, when a certain button is pressed on the form. Have found a couple of solutions, all of them start with something like Dim Adb As New Access.Application
But in my version of Visual Studio (2013 for Web) there isn't such type of variable as Access.Application, so it doesn't work.

Macros and VBA Code must be run in the Access environment. You can use the Office Interops assembly to do these things:

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/15s06t57.aspx

However, since you're presumably running this on a web server that is NOT local to the Access database, I'm not sure you'll be able to do this. You cannot open an Access database that is not on the same physical network as your own (i.e on the same LAN or WAN), and it would be doubtful your web server is on the same W/LAN. Also you'd need to have those Office Interops assemblies installed on the web server (which is mot likely not going to happen unless you own and host the web server yourself).

What does the macro do? There might be a different way to manage it ...

I posted a comment over there, but it looks like you're moving to an ASP.NET solution?

If so, then my original comment applies - unless your database is local to the web server, you can't do this.
