I dont think so! Since the information is on a server, you should use .Asp page to access it. The Asp server will return an html page format with all information needed.

Hope this will help.

You can add data, delete data or modify data with ASP (Active Server Pages). Most people use ADODB with either a DSN (Data Source Name - see ODBC) or DSN-less connection. DSN-less is OLEDB and is preferred because it minimizes overhead on the server. This does require a web server that supports ASP so files with .asp extentions and ASP coding can be interpreted properly. ASP is server-side scripting and you can use Javascript or VBScript or a mix thereof as the language to write your ASP code.

For those of us experienced with ASP, what you're asking is relatively simple. For a beginner, you will need the basics and there are plenty of places to gather information. One of the best being 4guysfromrolla.com. Some others are aspin.com, learnasp.com, w3schools.com, asp.net, msdn.microsoft.com/asp.
