Access Database To Web Server

P: n/a
Hello everyone,

I've been designing databases for some time now and want to take it to
the next step.

I am looking for information on having Access databases be accessible
through the Web.

Would someone be kind enough to give me some information in the right
direction. For instance, what front end should I use? Any
information on setting up the web server and what the requirements
would be? Any recommended readings?

The databases that I will be creating will be accessed from people
within the company and via the Web (for the sales reps).

Thanks,
Brian

Easiest way for remote access is to use Terminal Services but if you're
looking for real web enablement then look to ASP (AKA ASP 3.0) or ASP.NET

ASP.NET would require you have VB.NET or Visual Studio .NET to develop
in, ASP 3.0 requires a minimum of Windows Notepad or Edlin if you're old
enough :-)

Both require IIS for the server bit of course.

I find Visual Studio 6.0 good for writing ASP 3.0 as it gives you
intellisense and syntax colouring. FrontPage only colours HTML, a good
text editor to use is ConTEXT (http://www.context.cx/) and download the
ASP highlighter (http://www.context.cx/hl/asp.chl) and put into the
highlighters directory.

If you're in a masochistic frame of mind you can develop asp.net
applications in notepad as well :)
