Chapter 25. Publishing Data on the Web > Discovering the Possibilities

Discovering the Possibilities

This section gives you an overview of just a few examples of the abilities you have, using Access, to create various types of Web pages. These examples and more will be detailed in the next few chapters. In the WebChapters folder of the sample files included on the companion CD, you can find the files that demonstrate the types of pages you can generate using data from Microsoft Access. These examples includes the simple static HTML pages you can generate directly from Access, complex forms and Active Server Pages you can build with FrontPage’s Database Interface Wizard, and data access pages from Access.

Viewing Static HTML Pages

Figure 25-9 shows a simple HTML Web page created as a menu to allow you to link to other pages on the Web site to view reservations and requests. I used FrontPage to create the page and then added two push buttons to go to the related pages. I also applied one of the simple FrontPage themes to the page. I asked FrontPage to create the hyperlinks behind the two buttons as relative links to files in the same folder, so the three pages should work together no matter where you publish them as long as all three are in the same folder. (You can find this example page saved as index.htm in the WebChapters\StaticHTML folder on the companion CD.)
