Data Delivery

P: n/a
I've created a number of .html, pivot tables using Access' Data Page
tools. These work great and by pointing my browser to these files,
users throughout my firm can access these pivot tables. I had assumed
that I could simply publish these pivot tables on the web to outside
users who are configured as active directory users. The .htm pivot
table is linked to a query in Access that is built from a SQL database.
We've separately built a system where users can crawl through our file
server from outside of our network. I placed the .htm file in a folder
that the user has access to and the application shows the file.
However, when the user clicks on the file, s/he gets these messages:

Data Access Pages has detected that your IE security settings will not
allow you to access data from a site considered to be insecure.


In order to access the data contained within the Data Access Page, you
need to:
1. Start IE
2. Choose Internet Options from the Tools menu
3. Click on the "Security" Tab
4. Click on the "Trusted Sites" icon
5. Click on the "Sites..." button
6. Uncheck the "Require server verification (https) for all sites in
the zone" checkbox

Our technology consultant indicated that there's no way for the data to
"bind" to the browser and it's impossible to expose these .htm, pivot
tables to users outside of our network. Does anyone know a way to
accomplish what I'm trying to do? I feel like it should be possible
since Microsoft created that product to build .htm pages?

Any suggestions would be very helpful
