    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.

    This page has tutorials to get you going

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!
