Part VII: Internet

Part VII: Internet

If you would like to publish Microsoft Access data on the Internet or on an intranet, Access provides a range of features, such as the creation of static Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) files, dynamic creation with the help of Active Server Page (ASP) files, or deployment with Access data access pages. The HTML and ASP pages created by Access allow read-only data access, so you cannot make changes to the data. If you want to add, change, or delete records, you have to use different software tools, program ASP pages manually, or use Access data access pages.

Unfortunately, data access pages have decided disadvantages: Due to Microsoft’s licensing policy, a Microsoft Office license must be set up for each client that wants to call a data access page. Moreover, Office Web components that are normally part of the standard Office installation have to be set up on the client. Because data access pages in an Access project do not differ from those in an Access mdb database, data access pages are not covered further in this documentation.

Chapter 27, “Web Publishing with SQL Server,” provides an introduction to the Internet capability of Microsoft SQL Server/MSDE. There is an explanation of how to create time- or data-driven HTML pages with SQL Server/MSDE.

Extensible Markup Language (XML) is a document-handling standard that has been used increasingly for many applications, particularly Internet and intranet applications. Microsoft is promoting the use of XML and has built in support for it in Microsoft Access 2002 and Microsoft SQL Server 2000. Chapter 28, “XML with Access 2002 and SQL Server 2000,” provides an overview of the XML functions.
