Reports to web pages

P: 8

A little help needed when printing a report to a web page file to be uploaded onto a website.

For a number of years now I have used an MS Access database to produse reports and save them on my computer as RTF files. These were then uploaded on to a website that I own for people to acess. Recently I have been asked to change the format so that they are totally web based (HTM/HTML files not RTF) so that the files do not need to be downloaded each time to be viewed. I have recently been changing bits of coding round so that this is possible.

However when I produce these reports if they are more than 1 normal printed page it will save multiple files so that each page is a seperate HTML file with a link put at the bottom to scroll between them when they are published on the internet.

Does any one know how to make Access produce these reports as a single file with no links on them. If I exported them as RTF file I can then convert them easily in MS Word but I do not want to have to be doing this all the time as each time I create the reports there are about 40 reports.

Any one have any sugestions or advice?

I think it's better to generate directly html from Access!

Export to word isn't good idea and it's for 40 files a big work...

The html it's nothing then a text file but formatted in html standard!

So one time generated your file in Word, semply open it as normal text file and see the tags...

Those tags you can provide them from Access using a little coding...

And facilitate a lot your work..

And watch in Access I thing there is a possibility to export directly to html...

I'll see it...
