Chapter 13. Publishing Your Access Database > Converting Objects to Web Pages

Converting Objects to Web Pages

The Web page is the vehicle used to display and interact with information on the Web. It contains instructions, called tags, to display text and graphics properly formatted and positioned. Hyperlinks are a type of tag that link Web pages together, thus providing the primary navigation tool for the Web. It works as a pointer from one object to another. The destination doesn’t always have to be another Web page. It also can be a picture, an e-mail address, a file (such as a Microsoft Office document), or a program. For example, you can use hyperlinks to link text between Office documents.

HTML and XML

One way to create a Web page is to enter these formatting instructions using Hypertext Markup Language, commonly known as HTML. However, Access 2002 has the tools you need to convert objects directly to HTML documents so that they can be viewed on the Web. All you need is a Web browser such as Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
