Web service - how to?

P: n/a
Hi

I would like to access an ms access database located at a web site from my
desktop via web service. Is there some information available on how to do
that? Would the web service run on a shared hosting web account?

Thanks

Regards

Where ever the web service is running will have to have file level access to
the DB, is this possible with your setup?

Think of a web service as a special purpose web page with a predefined
URL and output. Let's say you wrote an ASP page that would take an ID
from the URL, get some data from the database and display it on the
screen. Now, take the URL and replace it with a special XML string,
and wrap the result up the same way and you have a web service.

The Web Service code is just another ASPX page (with a different
extension and a few more lines of code). Therefore, whatever you would
need to do to get to the database in an ASPX page, you would need to
do in a web service.
