10. The Internet > 97. Use a Browser Inside Access

Use a Browser Inside Access

Place the Microsoft web browser on a form to coordinate data and the Web.

Access tables have a hyperlink field type, which stores a URL that, when clicked, opens your computer’s browser and displays the site. This is useful, but to view the database information and the web site together is a challenge. You might have to reduce the size of both Access and the browser so that they fit together on your computer screen.

This hack puts the browser right on the Access form. To view the web site at the stored URL, you just load the browser with the URL address, and the web site appears on the form.

Figure 10-5 shows a form in Design mode. The Microsoft Web Browser control (one of the items in the list of More Controls that is available from the button on the toolbox) has been placed on the form.
