Why This Chapter Is Important

The Internet is part of our everyday lives. The Internet's penetration into the life of an Access developer is no exception. You can save almost every Access 2003 object as HTML. Furthermore, Access 2000 introduced a new object type called data access pages. Using data access pages, you can quickly and easily create a Web view of your data. Data access pages are extremely flexible and scalable. You can create the simplest data access page as easily as any Access form. On the other hand, using the Microsoft Script Editor (MSE), you can turn your data access pages into powerful Web pages. Probably the biggest downside of data access pages is that they must be viewed on a machine with Internet Explorer 5 or above, and Microsoft Office installed. This makes data access pages an excellent candidate for intranet applications, but not for Internet applications.

NOTE

The examples in this chapter are based on the Northwind sample database that ships with Microsoft Access.
