Our engineering department has an Access database that is hosted via a web sight. When you click the link for the database on their home page, the only option available is to download a copy of the database to your PC. Their database does not provide any means of searching the records so I developed my own database that uses the table from the downloaded database. I got tired of going to their homepage all the time to get new data so I decided to make a hyperlink from my database to run the download. Curiously, when I did this the download did not occur. The hyperlink took me into their database. Does any one know how/why this happens?
