What's the easiest way to convert an access form to to a web based
Front end ? Is there any software that can convert these formats
easily?

If not any Beginer tutorials would be helpful.

Than you

No software can effectively convert these formats because the way Access forms
work is fundamentally different from how Web interfaces have to work to be
usable.

You pretty much have the options of using a Terminal Server to allow remote
users to remote-control a virtual Windows session running your Windows app
(practical only for small numbers of known users) or rewrite the application
using any of 20 or so possible good Web application platforms from which you
must choose.

Have you experimented with the Data Pages objects in Access2000/2002/2003?
You can create web forms with text boxes and built-in navigation controls
just by using the wizard. Not very complicated forms, but a place to get
started.

As a beginner, you should stay away from most of the software
available unless you have plenty of time allocate to the learning
process. If you need quick results, I suggest Alpha Five. It will work
with your existing Access .mdb or as a stand alone database. You will,
however, have to recreate your forms. This should not be a major
problem as it is far easier than Access.
