Shared database without network tech required

P: n/a
Sorry for asking again. I know it's now a specific VB topic, but since
this ng is my home, I dare to ask again:

Can anyone please tell me the most simple way to enable 2 or more pcs to
share one folder which is located on one of these pcs?
I have once been able to just put the pcs in the same workgroup on a
local network, give them an ip, different account names and password and
then just share 1 folder. All pcs were able to write and read to/ from
an access mdb in this folder.

Anyways, I am now afraid that this was more or less pure coincidence.
Can anybody point me to a website or tell me the easiest method to set
this up?

My application should not require a network technican to be set up.

Thank you very very much.
Elton.

Windows file sharing.

You did it right :-)

Since it seems you need to share data via a network - you might want to
take a look at SQL Server Express or another server based database. These
allow you to expose the database via the network with less hassle (and more
security) than a file-share access database.
