    How to get Backend to Sharepoint so can link to its tables


    I am working with Business 365, Sharepoint and Access.
    I have split my database, and plan to distribute the Front End to our users, so that they can enter data and run reports, etc. through their Access software -- using links to tables that are on our SharePoint site.

    But I can't figure out how to get my Back End to the Sharepoint site so that it is available for me to link to.

    Also, I saved it to my pc for the moment, but is there a way that I can put the Back End on to the Sharepoint site as part of the splitting process?

    (I would prefer to not have to convert my tables to SharePoint lists.)
    (My understand that this is something different than just "storing" the backend there for backup purposes.)

    Thanks for any help!

    I don't have experience with Sharepoint, but I recently saw this presentation by Albert Kallal which may offer some insight.
    Good luck.
