    Sharepoint vs Access (Access 2003)

    Can anyone tell me about sharepoint, it's used on a clients intranet.

    Is it any good?

    How would you compare it to Access?

    Totally different, Pat. Sharepoint is strictly dot.net. We use it at work for a shared application called On-Time, but I've never dealt with the ins and outs. I believe it uses the SQL Server engine for its database.

    Thanks for that Charlotte.

    Can you program as easily in that as yuo can in Access? Can you do Mail Merges in SharePoint?

    Has Access got more functionality than Sharepoint?

    Sharepoint has a different purpose than Access - it's not a database management system (although it uses a database). See SharePoint Products and Technologies for a collection of links about SharePoint.

    Thanks Hans.

    What database would people operate under Sharepoint?

    Recent versions of Office can work together with SharePoint, so Access would be a logical choice, but I'm not sure what you mean.
