Chapter 17. Exporting Data to World Wide Web Pages

The easiest approach to creating Web pages is to export existing content from applications with which you're familiar. Each member of Office 97, except Outlook, is capable of exporting its documents to formatted HTML files with a File menu choice or a wizard. Access 97 gives you several options for creating static and dynamic Web pages from data contained in Jet tables. This chapter covers methods for generating static Web pages, which you must replace when the underlying data changes. Chapter 18, "Creating Dynamic Web Pages," describes how to create Web pages that automatically display the most current information.

You don't need to be an HTML (HyperText Markup Language) expert to export data from Access 97 objects to static Web pages. In fact, you don't need to have any knowledge of HTML and its formatting tags to perform the examples in this chapter. An elementary understanding of use of basic HTML tags, however, lets you alter the predetermined format of exported data to improve the appearance or utility of your Web pages. Thus, the HTML source for some of the examples in this chapter is included in the form of code listings or examples in the text.
