Default Macro

Dear Sir,

I am trying to create HTML pAges from a single Query. How would I create a macro to return One single record, to a text file(or HTML file). There are 32 records in my Query result!!!

Or can I write some code behind a form to create several different .txt or .html pages?

I would like to auto produce HTML pages, due to the information being held in the database, but my web information being in a different place. Thus not writting in the same information every month, just using the macro to populate the pages.

Than you

Well, it all depends on a LOT of different things how you'd go about putting this into place.
Say for example you have some stuff at the top of the page and the bottom that remains constant, and it's only the numbers you change, well, depending on your server setup, you could use Server Side Includes to have a page call 3 different pages - the top, the bottom, and the middle.

OR

You could export a report as HTML

OR

You could create HTML by writing the actual HTML to a text file


Basically - there's heaps of ways to do it.

However, if you have 32 records in your query, and therefore want to create 32 different files, each with just one row of data, I'd suggest opening the query as a recordset and creating the HTML like I mentioned in the 3rd seggestion.

I'm not going to write the code here for you, just a bit of crappy pseudocode to give you an idea of what I'm on about
[code]
Initialise counter to 1
Open recordset
While not recordset.EOF
Open "ExportFile" & Counter & ".html"
   Write Header HTML tags
   Write data
   Write Ending HTML tags
Close ExportFile
Counter = Counter+1
Next record
[code]

However, as I mentioned - exactly how you implement it will be based on heaps of things - such as - Server setup, your VBA skills, how you want it saved, whether or not you can save it directly to the Web Server.

But - if you just want the first record of the query - you could always just have the query being
Code:
SELECT TOP 1 * FROM TABLE1;
and export that query as HTML


Hope this points you in a more specific direction
