Putting Access Database Online

P: n/a
I see quite a few ISP's offering the serving of "ms-access" data. What is
the situation with that? Are they offering a service where your tables must
be converted to some flavor of SQL and then attached, or can you really
upload MDB's?

If you can upload MDB's, are they really talking about being able to access
that data with Access, or are they referring to uploading an MDB and then
using only Data Access pages?

Finally, if these guys actually do host an mdb backend online to which you
can attach with an Access or VB front end, how does the data transfer work?
I assume there would be no server-side queries and therefore all the data
has to travel through the wire before appearing on your screen. This sounds
like it would be pretty slow.

Thanks,

Mike

Hi
They mean using the Access from we pages via ASP or PHP. You can
upload MDB files using ftp but can't use the Access fromt end with
them.
