Web based in-house phone directory

P: n/a
Is Access the best way to go for this type of application ?

I need to install a web based solution that allows users to search
and/or print the directory.

I have an exisiting application on the server, however....
We just took over three establishments and I need to fold them into
ours ( in terms of the phone directory of course ). That's four
physical sites hence the need for a web based solution.

Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

Web-based in-house implies you have an intranet. You can use your existing
application, access your data through a webbrowser that runs Asp pages. So
all you need do is create and implement the Asp pages.

Have you considered that something like the Yahoo, Hotmail or Aim Mail
address books, might be an easy solution to this? TTBOMR they are all
two way synhronizable so you could maintain the master on your computer
and synchronise that way. Some, perhaps all, have a sharers list of
people who can look (and print) but not touch. Of course they may limit
the number of contacts, but I haven't seen any indication of this. At
least one of them has a powerful find utility (can't remember which).
And they're free and always up.
