Images in export to HTML, help!

P: n/a
I'm trying to put together a simple access database that will allow a friend
to maintain a simple database of products/pictures/prices, which he can then
export to html and upload to a website.

Problem is that access doesn't export the images when saving to HTML :(

The export to PDF solution isn't appropriate in this instance, is their a
third party print to html utility anywhere, or any other easy solution to
this problem?

Thanks in advance

Chris

ReportUtilities

might have some options that work for you.

Or write some VBA code that creates text files with all the html embedded in them as
appropriate. That'd be a fair amount of work.

Thanks for the reply, will try ReportUtilities first, if not, some coding
awaits!

I'm surprised that given the amount of requests for this feature, nobody has
written something to do it - unfortunately it's beyond my capabilities or I
would!

If it were me I'd build the HTML text from code :) (Based on a template I
built and doing string search and replace to substitute my content for
markers I've placed)

Use an HTML Printer Driver. There are lots of free or shareware ones out
there. I've tried and like the results from:

On way is to create the relevant pages using asp on a local server/workstation (IIS/PWS) then 'spider'
these pages to static HTML pages and image files for upload.

The asp pages publish the contents of the database directly, so when you add or edit an item using an Access
Form the change is reflected immediately. A tool such as the free HTTrack/WinHTTrack can generate a static
copy of the pages and image files which can then be uploaded to any web server.

The whole process is easily scripted, for example, you could run the spidering plus HTML compacting, site
validation, mapping and upload in a batch file to automate the entire publishing process.

A simple asp image database sample is available here:

HTTrack is available here:
