    Have a small data base and want a Data Access Page to be viewable for
    customers.

    Have installed IIS on my XP Pro system and have both mdb and DAP in the
    wwwroot directory.

    However, when I tried to access DAP from outside the intranet, it is not
    accessible... throws back a message about MS Office Web Components (which I
    have downloaded latest and installed) and won't access the data provider.

    (1) what am I doing wrong?
    (2) any literature or help available? (I think it's a IIS configuration
    problem, but am unsure.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry, but you cannot access a MDB file over the Internet (WAN) if you are
    not using a VPN; only over the local LAN. You'll to replace the MDB file
    with MSDE or SQL-Server Express 2005 as the backend database. However, even
    this last solution won't work for many of your customers because they will
    be located behind a firewall that will block the port 1433.

    A much better and universal solution would be to use something else, like
    ASP.NET, to show your database over the Internet.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
