Working with the Web

Designing and developing Web applications requires a different set of tools, a different approach, and a different mindset than performing the same tasks solely in Access. A properly designed Web application can offer significant improvements over typical desktop applications—in timeliness (frequency of update and reporting), interactivity (degree of user control), and partitioning (distributed location of application components).

With each new version of development environments, software companies provide improved tools that allow developers to more easily deliver desktop and Web solutions. Some of these tools allow developers to create desktop and Web applications that work with each other. However, there is quite a leap between desktop application development, such as Access, and Web application development. Before you begin to explore ways to create Web applications, you first need to become familiar with a couple of key underlying technologies—HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) and XML (Extensible Markup Language).
