    Citrix - Any experience? (97/2000)

    Good morning all, I am looking for anyone that has experience using Citrix as a way interface your Access applications on the web...

    Good? Bad? Ugly? Expensive?

    Thanks much!

    One of my clients has been using Citrix for about 3 or 4 years to collect data from field locations into Access 97 databases.

    The first year was 'difficult' due to connection problems and firewall issues. Since then, it has worked very well, although they have occasional printing issues.

    They haven't switched to Access 2000 because they're having problems getting two versions of Access to co-exist on Citrix and they aren't ready to convert their existing Access 97 applications.

    They are not using a web browser interface. Rather, the field offices connect via a phone line (like dialing into an ISP). Once the phone connection is made, an icon on the desktop connects to the Citrix server at the company's headquarters. The field then sees the Citrix 'desktop' with Access and the other Office applications.
