Data Access Pages (DAPs) were primarily used to work with an Access database over the Internet. DAP was essentially a Web form that allowed users to view, enter, edit, and delete data. However, DAPs didn't offer the features and flexibility that users needed; they were based on Active X technology, and they suffered from various security issues. Although you cannot open or work with DAPs in Access 2007, you can open them with Internet Explorer.
Office and Access 2007 offer a variety of solutions that provide the security and flexibility that users expect. Integration with InfoPath, SharePoint, and SQL Server are great examples. There is also new support for managed code, so look for easier integration with ASP and .NET.
