Article ID: 810582 - View products that this article applies to.
When you try to open a Microsoft Access database by using a URL address (such as http://ServerName/DatabaseName or ftp://ServerName/DatabaseName), you may receive one of the following messages:
Access 2002 is not designed to open a database by using a URL address. If you try to open an Access database (.mdb) file on an intranet Web site by using the IP address, the FQDN, or the NetBIOS name, Access 2002 recognizes that the file is outside your intranet or is on an untrusted site. Therefore, Access 2002 displays one of the error messages that the "Symptoms" section describes.
To view data, to add data, or to edit data in a database file, you can use either data access pages or Active Server Pages (*.asp). For more information about data access pages, click Microsoft Access Help on the Help menu, type About the types of Web pages Access creates in the Office Assistant or the Answer Wizard, and then click Search to view the topic.
