Chapter 20. Publishing Data on the Web > Linking to HTML Files

Linking to HTML Files

Just as you can link to dBase tables, Paradox tables, or ODBC data sources, you can link to HTML files by following these steps:

1.
Right-click within the Database window and select Link Tables; this opens the Link dialog box.

2.
Use the Files of Type drop-down list to select HTML documents.

3.
Select the HTML file that you want to link to, and click Link. The Link HTML Wizard appears (see Figure 20.4).

4.
In the wizard's first step, indicate whether the first row of data contains column headings. You can also see Access's proposed layout for the linked table.

5.
Click Advanced to designate specifics about the linked table. The Link Specification dialog box opens (see Figure 20.5). Here you can select which fields you want to include in the linked table, date delimiters, and other specifics of the linked file. Make your selections and click OK.

6.
Click Next to proceed with the Link HTML Wizard. In the next step, you select a field name and data type for each field in the HTML file. Make your selections and click Next.

7.
In the wizard's last step, you supply a table name for the linked table. Make your selection and click Finish.

8.
You then see a message that the table linked successfully. The table appears in the Database window with a special icon indicating that it's an HTML file (see Figure 20.6).
