    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.
