Saving a Form as a Data Access Page

Access 2003’s data access pages (DAP) feature underwent a major facelift in its second Access 2002 incarnation. One of the most useful additions to DAP is the capability to save a conventional Access form as a Web page. There are serious limitations to the design of forms that you can convert automatically to DAP. Some of the restrictions are due to the limited repertoire of HTML control objects; others relate to problems with forms that depend on a value in another form to supply data. The advantages of DAP as a means of quickly deploying a simple multiuser Jet application on your intranet often outweigh the form design limitations.

→ For a list of the most important limitations in form design for DAP, see “Understanding the Limitations of the DAP Conversion Process,” p. 1066.
