Accessing an Access report in ASP.NET RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1884322796 posted

    I developed an online survey using VB in VWD 2008 Express Edition.  The pages read from and write to an Access database.  I have a report in Access that summarizes the results of the survey.  How can I create a link on the ASP.NET page to open the report.  I am thinking that I would need to convert the report to a PDF so the user can view it online, but how do I get ASP.NET to contact the database to start the procedure that would convert the report to PDF?

    You can't run a report in Access from ASP.NET unless you install Access on the web server and invoke an Access Application object, which is not recommended at all. You would be better advised recreating the report as an ASP.NET web page and displaying the results there.
