Connect to Access database that resides on web server via Visual Basic?!

P: n/a
Is there a way to use access database on web host (I have a web hosting
account) in visual basic.
I want to make Visual basic client applications that connect to internet and
work with access database on some web server.
Can it be done?
Tnx.

If you are deploying VB clients, I would just use Sql Server instead. A lot
of ISP's (including me) support Sql Server and the ability to connect to it
over the web using a simple connection string... or you can configure a dsn
on the client as well, your choice.

You can't simply "connect" to mdb's. One reason is that it is a Jet
limitation, thus requiring your to have direct file access to the mdb.

I have heard of some people that talk about using "Remoting" in .Net to do
this -- but I don't know anything about that yet.
