Company Dashboard

I am looking into creating a company dashboard linked to many databases. A shortcut is going to be pushed out to all the systems in the company. What would the best way to design this company dashboard be? I am looking into html/java right now but having some trouble. I dont have visual studio. Ive googled the crap out of this, does anyone have a way they use or example?


I'm not an access newbie but I am not too experienced either.

Re: Company Dashboard

At work I created a database with a form that has a menu to select a database to open. This saved the user having shortcuts on their desktop.

When the user selected a menu code similar to below was activiated.
In the code below C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSACCESS.EXE is the location of the exe file

J:\COMMON\Databases\branch_attendance.mdb is the location of the database.

Sub open_branch_attendance()
Dim app_name As String

app_name = "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\MSACCESS.EXE J:\COMMON\Databases\branch_attendance.mdb"

Call Shell(app_name, 1)

End Sub
