MS Access Link on FrontPage Page

I want to hyperlink from the Intranet to an Access database.  If I put a hyperlink in FrontPage to Word, Excel, or Powerpoint, and publish, the application opens and I am able to use the application

When I try to open Access I get the following message:  
"The publisher could not be verified.  Are you sure you want to run this software?  Name:  DB.mdb   Publisher:  Unknown Publisher."  When I click RUN, it never opens Access.  

If I use CTRL-click to follow they hyperlink in FrontPage, the database opens.  

Any ideas?  Our Internet group is stumped...

RE: MS Access Link on FrontPage Page

_blank, need to open in blank page, otherwise you need to make sure the host setup access rights to viewing db, .mdb are commonly put into function use for form storage purposes and they will read that way. when you shift click it tell computer to run the actually link not to put it to use. so target="_blank" or _self
