Most of us are using the Web in some way, even if it's just to play or to research a favorite hobby. Others are connecting to the Internet and using it to solve business problems. Chances are, if you're reading this entry-level Access book, you'll not be asked to produce a Web-enabled application right away, but that's no reason to not be prepared!
A data access page (DAP) is an Access object, but unlike the other objects you've learned about so far, the page is actually a Dynamic Hypertext Markup Language (DHTML) file. This file is stored outside of your database (MDB) file, although you can still view it in the database window. A page looks and responds like an Access form or report, but you can view the page using a Web browser and update a connected database via an Internet connection. In this chapter, we'll show you how to create a data access pageone of Access's current solutions for working with data via the Internet.
