Is it possible to export two locations to google maps and retrive the distance between them through automation.

For example export this string to google maps:
290 Bremner Blvd, Toronto, Ontario to 101 9 Ave SW, Calgary, Alberta

Extract from the google maps web page the distance between the two points and import into an Access form text box.
3,403.5 km

See this post for info.
The whole thread shows a dialog and examples for using Google maps with Access, but as the specific post indicates, the process has changed at the Google end.

Yeah, to do that, you will need to use Google APIs. I've never tried it.
