Access to HTML

Are you looking to convert your Microsoft Access Tables into HTML or a web page document?

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps in exporting the Access tables to a browsable HTML document.

Launch Access Dashboard Designer and click on the connect button

In the Driver, pick “MS Access .mdf.. “

Click on the “Access/Excel File” and pick the access .mdb file

Click on the “New Blank Dashboard”

Give any descriptive name to the Dashboard

Next, it will show the Query browser and list all the available MS Access tables

Right click on the node name of the table,

Select ‘Export to HTML’

You may select “Queried Rows” or “All Rows” to HTML

Queried Rows: Will export whatever you have already queried in the dashboard. This means if you have put a restriction in the Qlet to pull only 100 records then it will export only 100 rows to HTML

All Rows: This will re-query the database and export all rows in the table to HTML
