Creating a Data Access Page with AutoPage

If you are confident that everyone who will need to access your data on the Internet or an intranet will be using Internet Explorer version 5.0 or later, and that they will have Microsoft Office 2003 Web Components installed, you can take advantage of the special capabilities of data access pages. (Office 2003 Web Components is a set of ready-made controls that you use to work interactively with information in a data access page.)

A data access page is similar to a form, in that it can be used to view, enter, edit, or delete data from a Microsoft Access or a Microsoft SQL Server database. Like a form, a data access page is an Access object. Unlike a form, a page is not stored as part of your database: it is an external HTML file that is linked to your database in such a way that it makes the information in the database available over an intranet or the Internet. The window displayed when you click Pages on the Objects bar contains shortcuts to any pages you have created, and each page contains code that connects it to the appropriate database when the page is opened in Internet Explorer.
