Access 2007 is a database, so under normal circumstances, I wouldn't think you would "display" the database itself, you'd program a DB connection, draw out the data, and then format the data for display in your webpage.

If you want people to be able to download the database file, that can require a little finesse. .NET does a lot of things to "protect" your files from unauthorized access, and DBs get a lot of attention so your server is literally fighting you to keep those files secret. I would recommend zipping the database up. That will compress the database to a smaller size (possibly a major advantage) and make it available as a .zip file which servers are "download-friendly". You can then use a simple link element...

<a href="http://www.MySite.com/Path/To/File/MyDatabase.zip">Click here to download the sample database as a zip file</a>.

And people should have easy access to the DB file.

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
