Remote Database Access

Hi all,

I am working on portal which is using MS Access 2003 database. The
problem that I am facing is that once I received data from vendors I
have to upload whole Access Database file to server.

Initially it is not an issue but after increasing the size of database
file(nearly to 50 MB) it is now difficult to upload such file on
server.

Is there any way to remotly connected to MS Access database file and
update changes on database tables or to import tables remotly.

Thanks a lot

Asif

You can use replication/synchronization or you can automate exports from a
local table to a remote table.

Looked at any of that info yet?

In a website situation with an ISP, replication is a no-go, because
you won't be able to install the synchronizer on the ISP's server in
order to be able to run an indirect synchronization .

And if you don't understand what that paragraph is talking about,
you shouldn't be mentioning replication as a solution to a problem.

Until I see a reference to web server, I leave open the possibility that
server could be a file server.

Even if there is a web server involved, if it is inhouse, as ours is, I can
replicate and synchronize via the share. I don't need to install anything
on the server. The fact that the share is later accessed by web-related
activity is irrelevant.

Even if the server is not in-house, as long as my provider makes a share
available to me I can do the same thing.

FYI: By reference to a "share" I mean a pathway to a folder via the file
system, as through a VPN.

Assuming a LAN, yes. Once your'e on a WAN, though, that's not the
case at all.

No, you can't. At least not safely. Or with anything like reasonable
speed. Unless, of course, you've got a really big pipe to the ISP.

You clearly don't know what you're talking about with regard to Jet
replication if you aren't taking those very likely aspects of the
situation into account.

Irrelevant if it's a WAN connection. That makes it *possible* to do
direct replication, but it is far, far from being advisable. Anyone
with real replication experience over a WAN would know this.

Why not wait until after the OP identifies the environment and then start
excluding inappropriate options?

Because the number of situations where replication can be
appropriately used are extremely narrow, and the original
description of the problem space sounded very much like one in which
it would not work.

If your history of postings demonstrated any experience with
replication, I wouldn't be ragging on you. But so few Access
developers have actually delved into it in any depth, and there is
such a huge gulf between the promises made in the documentation for
replication and what you can actually do reliably that I feel it's
important to nip in the bud any off-hand suggestion to use
replication.

I have nearly 10 years of firsthand experience with Jet replication,
and there are very few people who approach that. When people spout
off about replication without providing caveats, it is a red flag to
me that they really don't have any deep expertise in the subject.
