I want to create a dynamic web page to retrieve data from an access database (created by using microsoft office 2003 professional edition) using microsoft dot net framework. Please guide me step by step to do this.
Okay, you can't do that with just Office 2003 professional. You'll need to install and configure the dotnet framework on your machine first, and then you could use infopath to create forms to work with, say, something like MS Sharepoint. You could use MS Frontpage to create an online form and link it with an Access database, but you will not need the dot net framework for that. It's easy and Frontpage is pretty intuitive.
Here are the basic instructions for using MS Frontpage: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/frontpage/HP052812481033.aspx
You will also need webspace or a webhost that will support Microsoft ASP web hosting.
If you haven't done this before, it may be easier to get a professional do it for you, using either Microsoft or PHP/MySQL based technologies. It will certainly be time efficient.

"The Microsoft Jet Database Engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'"There are several causes for this error message:

error may be caused by a delegation issue. Check the authentication
method (Basic versus NTLM), if any. If the connection string uses the
Universal Naming Convention (UNC), try to use Basic authentication or
an absolute path such as C:\Mydata\Data.mdb. This problem can occur
even if the UNC points to a resource that is local to the IIS computer.

that you have the ability to create and/or destroy any temporary files.
Temporary files are usually created in the same folder as the database,
but the file may also be created in other folders such as the WINNT

If you use a network path to the database (UNC or mapped drive), check the permissions on the share, the file, and the folder.
Verify that the file and the data source name (DSN) are not marked as Exclusive.
"other user" may be Microsoft Visual InterDev. Close any Visual
InterDev projects that contain a data connection to the database.
Simplify. Use a System DSN that uses a local drive letter. If necessary, move the database to the local drive to test.

A database is a collection of information (or data) that is organized to make retrieving specific information easy. Access isa software application used to create and manage a computerized database.
Microsoft Access is database software that tracks information for business or individuals. It's included in the Microsoft Office suite or as a stand alone program. Access is a relational database management system that links tables through common fields such as a part number, invoice number, or social security number. Relational database management systems can eliminate duplication of data and enhance validity by specifying relationships between tables.
you can create static data base in Excel works heet and link each cell to another sheet.
or you can create a dynamic data base in access. you need a MS access book. there are lots link you need to understand in order to have a working data base.
Start, Programs, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Office Access 2007.
Click the Office Icon in the top left corner of the Access 2007 window.
Click New, locate where it says "Blank Database". In the field labeled "File Name", type the name of your new database. To choose a folder on your computer to save the new database, click on the folder icon next to the "File Name" field, and select the folder, then click Ok. Then click "Create".
Please let me know if this helps or if you have any questions.
Frontpage has been discontinued. It's a bummer because I like the program myself and still use the 2002 version of it.
There are two replacements for web development.
The first on is Visual Web Developer Express Edition and is available for free at Micorosoft.com. I'm using it for an intranet site at work. It works with SQL server and even Access databases very well. It takes 3 gig to load everything up.
The next program is Microsoft Web Expression. It's $299 for full $99 for upgrade. If your licensed for Front Page, you qualify for the upgrade price.
Some of the new software doesn't work with Front Page server extensions. One system does but the other doesn't. Microsoft.com can give you the details on that.
Display the table in Design view,
create a new field to store the hyperlinks, click the new hyperlink
field's Data Type box, click the list arrow, select Hyperlink, and save
To Insert a Hyperlink:
Select the hyperlink field and then click the Insert Hyperlink button on the toolbar or select Insert ,
Hyperlink from the menu. Either select a file you want (use the Browse
button to help you locate the file) or type a Web address for the
hyperlink's destination and click OK.
To edit a Hyperlink: Right-click the hyperlink and select Hyperlink , Edit Hyperlink from the shortcut menu.
If, as I suspect, this is for a web form, then it effectively can't be done on a "proper" web server. This is because you cannot install MS Office on an MS server OS (e.g. Server 2003). You need to use MS SQL Server or MySQL instead.
If this is for very limited use (i.e. only a few clients at a time), you can use XP running IIS but this is really not a good idea. The sedurity implications don't bear thinking about :) Linking a web page to Access can probably be done using ASP (never even thought of trying it - anyone else here know for sure?)
If you are using a Linux web server then it's totally out of the question. Use Webmin or PHPMySQL to set up a MySQL database & PHP to code the linkage between the page and the DB. There are plenty of tools out there that will automate this for you, some of them Open Source and therefore free to acquire.
