Deploying Data Access Pages with Office Web Components

Microsoft's determination to "embrace and extend the Internet" has made Internet publishing a must-have feature for the Office suite, whether or not the term is appropriate for particular members. It's very uncommon to "publish" databases, especially large ones, in conventional HTML tables. Instead, Access 2000 now has the capability to deploy database applications as Data Access Pages (DAP), which offer convenient data searching, display, and analysis capabilities. DAP are the subject of Chapter 18, "Designing Data Access Pages."

Note

Microsoft has abandoned the attempt made in Access 97 to generate Active Server Pages (ASP) that emulate Access forms. If you export an Access 2000 form to .asp format, you get an HTML table containing the entire content of the form's underlying table or query result set. ASP have the advantage of browser independence, but automatically creating workable ASP lookalikes of complex Access forms is a project of enormous proportions. Access 2000 users must settle for DAP. Unfortunately, there's no Export to DAP or Save as DAP feature for Access 2000 forms.
