How to convert form with vb code to html file?

P: n/a
Is there any way of converting an existing access form into html
format? The form in question has built-in visual-basic code, which
gets commented out when you use the "save as" method, instead of
incorporated into the functionality of the html. We are considering
putting these html versions onto an IIS server for internal use, but we
do not want to re-write all of the code for use in the html version.

On the web the can create dynamic forms with VBscript or javascript.
This is referred to as DHTML (dynamic HTML). It doesn't do much, mostly
just cute --- if you want it to do something - like interact with a
database that lives on the same server as IIS - then it won't be so
cute. You will have to use asp (Active Server pages with vbscript or
javascript) or aspx(, C#). This is way outside the league of VBA.
VBA only works in Microsoft Office - Access, Excel, Word, Powerpoint
(well, maybe Outlook too). So the only way I know to convert an Access
form to an html form is to write the asp/aspx code yourself.
