WHY DATA ACCESS PAGES?

One of the first questions asked when developers look at DAPs is, “Why do I need to use Data Access Pages when I have forms and reports, which I am so comfortable with?” That is a very good question, and one that this chapter should answer for you.

Data Access Pages are primarily separate HTML files with a shortcut in the Access database window. When not using the simple page version, which is a single record displayed and edited at a time, Data Access Pages are built based on the “banded” theory, in which each “band” has grouping and sorting.
