    Multi user environment accessible from anywhere

    Hi,



    I am looking to create an access database to be used by outsourcers in the Philippines, Kenya, Europe etc. So basically it needs to be accessible from anywhere. For those of you experienced in the technical details, what are my options for doing this?

    Thanks!

    I don't know that it is necessarily the best or only way, but I would probably make a web application that could store an access db file in it. I've done a little of that with ASP.NET applications.

    Thanks; is that going to be a fairly complicated job? I'm trying to keep this low budget.

    Well if you do choose to go that route, the benefit is that you need absolutely no user interface within the access file- really you only need the tables. All the queries can be done in the ASP application through ADO.net. You can program the ASP application in VB.net if you want, so that is similar to access programming. It is a little more complicated, but it's definitely doable. The only extra cost you would have to deal with is getting server space to publish the application to the web. I'm sure that you could choose a multitude of other languages and environments to do this in, I'm just more familiar with ASP.net.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
