Uploading msaccess text list
« on: June 21, 2009, 10:51:53 pm »

I am unable to find any ref. to this in search!
We have an msaccess list, it has 28 columns of variable widths.
In total it is 22 Mb in size.
We would prefer if it would appear in gallery as it appears on msaccess.(text list)
Has anybody tried this?

Coppermine can not embedd the view of MS Access nor of any other Office application. You can enable coppermine to allow MS Access files to be uploaded, but the end user will need MS Access or at least the runtime to view it on his client. In terms of coppermine, Access files are being displayed similar to MS Word files, e.g. like this:
What you're up to do is impossible - a web browser can not display proprietary data out of the box. The only way to accomplish this would be inside silly iframe solutions (they suck if you ask me).
The filesize of 22 MB is not suitable for use on the web. If you really need this badly, hire a coder, convert the Access database into a mySQL database table and then design a custom view to mimick the table-driven Access view.
