You need to use classic ASP or ASP.NET to do this. On a side note, Access databases are not the best to use on a website, as they are not secure. You'd be better off converting your database to a MySQL database and using PHP as your scripting language. There are many conversion tools for this. Refer to this thread (http://www.codingforums.com/showthread.php?t=76246&highlight=access+mysql) for a small list of them.
