    Not that I"m aware of. The best you could do would be to create data access pages. ASP.NET is a completely different animal all together.
    oh yeah... documentation... I have heard of that.

    Let me preface this by saying that I've not tried automation from ASP, so I don't know if it would work.

    I would think that IF you had access installed on the server, you might be able to automate it to print HTML reports, and then you would present a link to that report to the client.

    This approach, (if it worked, that is) would not scale well at all, though. I would guess that you wouldn't want to attempt more than a report every few seconds.

    A note of caution: Microsoft themselves have very strongly cautioned against using office automation in a web server environment.
