Sorry for being not so clear.
I mean I have created database in access 2010. i splitted and 3 users are easily using it. So could it possible that we can use this desktop version in any web browser or i will have to use web access database.

I'm still not sure what you mean. Are you talking about putting the DB on SharePoint or something else. Access on the web is limited--even in SharePoint. But, since I don't know what you are trying to do, I can't advise any better at this point.

Have you seen this MSDN article about Creating Web Databases with Access 2010 and Access Services?

Access has limitations on using it on the web. From what I understand, you must create the DB as a web DB from the start because some features won't translate to a web version.

Thanks for this answer. You stated earlier that web database is limited. Can u explain it please that how is it limited?. Coz I want to create a database that will keep the record of trucks transportation.
Daily entries would be around 150. So please advice accordingly.

When you create your database, you must create it as a web database. I think there are some things that Access will disable for you when you do this. I have not experimented much, but I just tried creating a new Web Database and tried importing my perfectly working tables from another database and came up with about 400 Web Compatibility errors.

The best way to use Access in a multi-user environment is on a shared network location and not through the web.
