Saving Queries as Read-Only Pages

Saving query datasheets as DAP is an alternative to creating the live Web reports described in Chapter 23. If the query is updateable, you can edit the result set by the methods described in the preceding section. In most cases, however, pages based on queries are read-only, even if the result set is updateable.

Datasheets with special formatting preserve the format by changing the Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) style for text boxes. For an example, save the Customers and Suppliers by City UNION query to a page that closely resembles the query’s Datasheet view. To make the entire text box visible, you must increase the depth of the Header section from 17 to about 21 pixels and then expand the depth of text boxes, which appear as command buttons in Page Design view. On the whole, special effects applied to datasheets are less than special in pages.
