Access and SQL server

P: n/a
Some of my clients are looking for a plattformsindependent database since
Access is only for windows and are asking about SQL server. Is it possible
to to use my Access databases as SQL databases and if so what do I have do
do?
best regards

You can use Access as a client to SQL Server or in fact any database that
provides appropriate ODBC or OLEDB drivers. However; as long as you are
using Access as the client it will still only "work on Windows" since it is
the client that determines whether the application is cross-platform or
not, not the back end.

SQL Server only runs on Windows as well.
