Deploying Exported XML File Sets to a Web Server

Another advantage of exporting Access objects to static XML data documents is that their file sets are self-contained. Presentation of the data as a Web page isn't dependent on access to a Jet or SQL Server data source. Thus, you can simply copy or move the .xml, .xsl, and .htm or .asp files for any exported Access object to the default \Inetpub\Wwwroot folder or subfolder of Internet Information Server (IIS) 4+ or a virtual directory that you dedicate to delivering XML-based pages. You also can use Windows 98/Me's Personal Web Server (PWS) 4+ or Windows NT 4.0's Peer Web Services 4+. For PWS, copy the files to \Webshare\Wwwroot or a subfolder.

Tip from

You must install IE 5+ on any machine that executes an .asp file to deliver HTML to client browsers. IE 5+ includes the XMLHTTP object and the version of MSXML required by the two invocations of the CreateObject method in the standard .asp file generated by AccessWeb.dll.

If you want to export live Access Web reports or use SQL Server HTTP template queries, both of which are described later in the chapter, you must install and run IIS 5.0 under Windows NT/2000+. IIS 5.0 running under Windows 2000+ Professional or Server is highly recommended.
