Is there anyway to force the Access Web Object Control to use Chrome instead of IE? I am trying to use a website within Access that my company uses for it's daily routines....and that site does not like IE at all. Every time the site loads you have to click through about 25 different "script errors" for the site to eventually pull up the page. However, when using Chrome with this site, it works perfectly. In fact, the company IT folks have made it mandatory that we use Chrome instead of IE.

So if anyone knows a way to do this...I would really appreciate it. Also, if it means not using the Web Access Object Control...and using something else...then so be it...I just need to know how? Oh...and to make it worse...our Company IT folks have restricted the use of ActiveX on our machines, so I can't use any of the ACtiveX controls in Access either ...

Anyway...anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

No, IE is the only option. Suggest use a hyperlink to open Chrome in it's own browser window

you can Ignore the script error using VBA:

Me.WebBrowser0.Silent = True
