    Hello,

    I've created an Access database and a website which is tied to that
    database. However when someone logs onto the website and tries to open
    up the database they have options of: open, save and cancel. If the
    user chooses to open the database they are then automatically prompted
    to save it.

    I don't feel it is necessary for each user to have to save the database
    to their PC in order to open it just to fill out a simple form.

    How can I fix this so that my users can simply open the database and my
    splash screen will show up giving them the options I have put on the
    splash screen?

    Thanks,
    Justine

    You can use ASP to give them a web-based form, rather than opening the
    database directly.
