6 Creating a Data Access Page for an Access Table A data access page is a dynamic HTML document that you can open with a Web browser to view or update current data in an Access database. –Data access pages are stored outside the database as separate HTML documents. You can create a data access page either in Design view or by using a wizard. To invoke the Page Wizard, click Pages in the Objects bar of the database window, click New, click Page Wizard, and finally click the OK button.

15 Creating and Using a PivotTable in a Data Access Page When used in a Data Access Page, a PivotTable (also called a PivotTable list) is an interactive table that lets you analyze data dynamically using a Web browser. Create a PivotTable by clicking the Office PivotTable tool on the toolbox, followed by the location on the page where you want to position the upper-left corner of the PivotTable. Use the fields from the field list to drag and drop the filter, row, column, and detail fields. Add calculated fields as needed. Modify the size of the PivotTable and save the page.
17 PivotCharts The Office PivotChart Component assists you in adding a chart to a data access page, form, or datasheet. PivotChart components: –PivotChart toolbar –Plot area –Data marker –Data field –Value axis label –Gridline –Category field –Category access label –Series field –Legend –Filter field
18 Adding a PivotChart to a Data Access Page Create a new data access page and click the Office Chart tool on the toolbox. –Click the location on the data access page where you want the upper-left corner of the chart to appear Click the PivotChart control and select the data source, data link connection, table or query, and char type. Close the Commands and Options dialog box and add the appropriate fields from the field list. Save the data access page.
22 Using XML XML (Extensible Markup Language) is a programming language that is similar in format to HTML, but is more customizable and suited to the exchange of data between different programs. Access can import data from an XML file directly into a database table. To import an XML file, click File on the menu bar, point to Get External Data, then click Import. Select XML after clicking the Files of type list arrow Use the Look in list box to select the XML documents to import, and click the Import button.

Enter the filename in the File name text box, and then select the location where you want to save the file. Click the Save as type list arrow, click XML, and then click the Export button. Click the Advanced button on the Export XML dialog box; set the data, schema, and presentation options; and then click the OK button.
