Access "Pages" as a way to set up web based applications

P: n/a
Hi:

Can someone answer the following questions about "Pages"

a. Are they are good way to develop web based access applications?
b. Is there a good manual like "Pages for Idiots" which will help in setting up a simple
application?

No, they load into a web browser, there the similarity ends. They're
basically Access running inside your browser. The client side must be
able to "see" the database, it will work on a LAN but get into the realm
of WANs and the internet, where normal web pages are good, these ones
will fail.

And, to reinforce... each user must be using Internet Explorer 5.5 or later,
thus also running Windows, and must have the Office Web Extensions
installed. They can't be used with any other browser, or any other O/S. So
they are useful only where you have control over the users' software
configuration.
