Wondering if you lovely people can help me with something I have been puzzling over for a while - opening an Access database from a web page.

I am developing an intranet and I want to include shortcuts/hyperlinks which open databases. When I do this using the Insert Hyperlink to file command, clicking on the hyperlink opens two complete sessions of the database in Access, one in the background, the other active. Aside from being unnecessary this is a real problem with slow machines and 10MB+ databases.

Can anyone help me please? I am using Access 97, SR-2 and FrontPage 98.
