Thanks a lot Bill for the reply.<BR>No I am not using Visual Basic. Actually i need to convert access to asp that's why I was wondering if ic an create <BR>active-x control and can call from ASP.<BR><BR>Cheers,<BR>Sandy.
...Access reports, especially, then the answer is no way.<BR><BR>It's true that you can "script" the Access DB as an object (that is, open up all of Access itself as an ActiveX object), but the results are singularly disappointing when used with ASP.<BR><BR>From VB, you can do this (script Access) and ask it to create a report and send it to the screen or printer. But ASP doesn't *HAVE* a "screen" or a printer available to it! Because the *ONLY* way that ASP can communicate with the user's machine is via HTML. And those Access reports simply are *NOT* presented as HTML. <BR><BR>So the short answer is "No." And the only a little bit longer answer is "Learn to use HTML to produce tables and then use ASP to fill in the fields of those tables."<BR><BR>
no that's fine I need to actually migrate the access forms taht's why i was thinking to save the time in ASP/HTML otherwise i am gonna utlise these two.<BR>Anyway thanks for your help bill.<BR>Cheers,<BR>Sandy.
