open MS Access databse in Firefox

P: n/a
In IE, we can open an access database uing an Active X Object.
How I can do the same in Firefox.
As Firefox, dont allow you to create a Active X Object.

Here is the IE Code.
var myConnect = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data
Source=" + dbpath + "";
var ConnectObj = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Connection");
var RS1 = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Recordset");

Probably not. There is an experimental extension for Firefox that adds
ActiveX support. I've never tested it, and it's obviously still in beta,
but maybe you're lucky.

Actually, Sunny, what you can do is open an ActiveX in
*Microsoft_Windows* rather than "in Internet Explorer". Its just that
Internet Explorer is intended to run on Microsoft Windows and to talk
directly to it. You may remember there were anti-trust cases against
Microsoft about this (they lost in the EU and pay us lots of welcome
cash every year because of it. I forget what happened in the USA).

Firefox, on the other hand, is *not* limited to Microsoft Windows and
does *not* presume it is there. If it is on Windows, there is a
utility to do what you want - I think it is still in Beta test though
rather than widely used. To be honest, I have no idea if it works and
would not use it even if it did.
