View Full Version : Not opening In IE

10-27-2004, 05:41 PM
How can I open an Access 2000 database from a web page with a Windows 2000 Server? I just want to open it up and not use Cold Fusion or anything else but just open it.
It works with Netscape 4.77 but IE and Netscape 7 it is not working.
It opens if I put this file path in the URL address in the IE browser:


But when I try and put it as a link for a web page:

<a href="file:////myInfoServer/test.mdb">test</a>
I also tried:

<a href="file:\\myInfoServer\test.mdb">test</a>

It tries to open in IE and says its downloading after I select 'Open' but it never opens. In Netscape 4.77 the Access Database opens and works. Please advise.
