JavaScript & MS Access

Ken
Can I use a script (JavaScript??, php??) to open Access, then
automatically import data from a txt file appending the data into the
database?

Thanks.

PHP, yes. JavaScript, less likely, but you could. Client-sidem no.

It is possible to use php (server side) to control Access (Client side) on
my computer?

Can you suggest a few commands to get me started?

Thanks.

No. Think about the security implications of the for a minute.

[...] Client-sidem no.


Not true. As long as there is an appropriate client-side API that
provides respective language binding, such can be done client-side.
It is not likely that such an API is available and accessible,
generally, but it is possible. The Windows Script Host is an example
of that.

Would that API need more than just JS, though, such as some sort of
plug-in through with the browser can chat with the API?

Yes, of course. The API under discussion is an *ACCESS* API, not Javascript.
