ftp into access

P: n/a
How can you link an Access database on an ftp site, directly into a
database. I cannot see what the approiate connection string would be?

Thanks Tom. It's good to know I am not missing something obvious. So the
next question is what should I be doing to achieve this.
I have an Access database (say with one table) which I want remote users
to manupilate thru a PivotTable and export/print/etc. what is the best
solution?

Compared with running Access queries over the internet, a bicycle
courier and frizbeenet would be quicker.

Ways of Accessing Access data over the net:

Terminal Services, so the database runs locally, only
screen/keyboard/mouse info is sent over the net.

Web enable the data, either using ASP or ASP.NET, there are other ways
but those two would be the logical choice if starting from scratch.
