Access Synchronization with oracle and power point reporting

37 New Member
application is built on an MS Access database utilizing the GUI facilities of MS Access. Copies of this application are used stand alone in 4 different geographical locations.The users in these locations send the respective mdb files to a seperate team for consolidation. The reports from each mdb file is generated separately and consolidated into one single report. We wish to consolidate all the stand alone mdb copies into a single centralized database(Oracle ) and generate consolidated reports from the central DB.

Can someone give me heads up on the synchronization of data between the oracle server and the different mdb files. The users may wish to work offline but when they wish to send/get updated information to oracle, they should be able to do it.
Second, how to prepare charts in powerpoint based on data present in oracle through MS Access VBA.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

There are two ways you can do this.

Either link the oracle tables to the mdb database(s) using odbc and use queries to update or append data.

The other way is to do this using vba coding. You would have to create a connection to the oracle database and then use recordsets to connect to the oracle tables.

You can then either use a different connection for each of the mdb databases and recordsets to open the tables. Then use code to synchronise the data. Or you can consolidate the mdb databases into one and use that as the core database into which this code is added.

But the client does not want to link the tables directly to oracle. Is their any code samples for generating a graph based on data in access tables and paste the same in powerpoint.?

My advice is to output the data to excel and do any chart creation there. Then you can link it ot powerpoint.

Hello, I'm trying to decide if the following situation would be workable: Generate an MS Access Front End (which will run localy on client computers), which will link to a DBMS (SQL server or Oracle). As far as I know there will be approx. 30 till 40 users max working on the database. I think approx. 25 users will actually enter data (others will be mostly reporting and viewing). I don't really know the network capacity.

I am trying to convince a client that dotNet is preferable to an Access project (ADP/ADE). This client currently has a large, pure Access MDB solution with 30+ users, which needs to be upgraded. I believe a dotNet solution is better, but I'm trying to be as convincing as possible -- and maybe I'm wrong! I would appreciate any input or references which could help me.

I'm fairly new to Access (I've worked with Oracle and MySQL in the past). I was asked to build an application for a small office and told that I had to use Access 2002. I was VERY uncomfortable with this, but went ahead anyway. So two weeks ago we rolled out the new system and I'm still wondering how robust Access is......I know it's not in the same league as Oracle, but at the same time this isn't a real big application. But I can't...

Hi everybody: This will be not easy to explain as my mother language is not english, so my apologies in advance if it sounds confusing. We have a database access 97 wich controls time of people in their job in order to finally know how many money costs us to run some projects. People always estimates the time when reporting and we do have the impression they really underestimate the time.

I need to convert a 17mb access 2000 db to Oracle and house it in a Citrix farm. The issue: we have never converted an Access Db to Oracle but can probably use Oracle's Workbench to assist with this. Also - the citrix folks do not want us to keep the FE in Access as the queries and other activities consume a lot of power. The users will be in 3 different offices across the globe all accessing the 1 Oracle DB in Citrix. Does anyone have...
