Chapter 18. Designing Data Access Pages > Starting a DAP from Scratch

Starting a DAP from Scratch

The Page Wizard and AutoPage have a limited repertoire of page design features, so creating DAP from scratch or from an existing Web page is an alternative when you want custom page features. For instance, you can create hyperlinked help DAP for your applications by opening a DAP, deleting the Header section, and typing the heading and body text of your help page in the default <H1> and <P> elements provided.

Opening new DAP by double-clicking the Create a Data Access Page in Design View item opens the DAP Designer with a page having the default <TITLE> and <H1> text elements and a single unbound Section. You use the Page Field List to bind the page to a data source through a Record Navigation control and add bound PivotTable or text box controls to the page.
