    Looking for Feedback on Data Access Pages (2000/2002)

    A client has asked us to investigate building a front-end for an existing Access database where several thousand people need to submit an occasional application that is text intensive. The initial concept involved building an Excel app that would collect the data, be emailed to the central location and uploaded to Access. Unfortunately a number of the entries are lengthy text fields (>1000 chars), which is a pain to deal with in Excel. In addition, doing data validation in Excel typically requires quite a bit of VBA, and this is supposed to be an interim solution for a period of 12 to 24 months.

    It seems to me a web based solution which feeds the database directly might be a better choice, and since the client already runs an Intranet and IE is standard, it appears that DAPs might be a good solution. I haven't had any direct experience with them as all my web based work has been either FrontPage based or ASP, so I'm looking for feedback, either positive or negative on how effective DAPs are. Thanks in advance.

    No - I've seem a few questions on the subject over the last couple of years, but it appears that very few people are actually using them, or at least they don't hang out in our neck of the woods.
