Chapter 18. Designing Data Access Pages > Getting Acquainted with DAP

Getting Acquainted with DAP

Access 2000 includes sample DAP to introduce Microsoft's new approach to creating data display and editing forms. With Northwind.mdb open, click the Database window's Pages shortcut to display the list of sample pages. Double-click the page name in the Database window's list to open a page in DAP Page view. DAP Page view uses IE 5.0's XML parser and HTML engine to display the page in a window similar to that for displaying conventional Access forms. The Page View menu substitutes for the Form View menu when you open DAP.

The Review Products Page

The majority of DAP you design probably will be read-only pages for displaying summary data, detail data, or both. The simplest read-only sample page is Review Products, shown in Figure 18.2, which displays records of the Categories related records from the Products tables in groups of three records from each table.
