I came across the following code which works perfectly in IExplorer. Is there a way to make it work in Chrome or Edge? For a javascript total newbie.


<title>test javascript to read ms access data</title>

<script type="text/javascript">
var pad = "C:\\Alex\\test.mdb";
var cn = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Connection");
var strConn = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + pad;
var rs = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Recordset");
var SQL = "SELECT * FROM Org";
rs.Open(SQL, cn);
if(!rs.bof) {
if(!rs.eof) {
document.write("<p>" + rs.fields(0).value + ", ");
document.write(rs.fields(2).value + ".</p>");
else {
document.write("No data found");
