    Share a database (access 2003)

    I have created a database application which I made a mde file out of. Users currently run the database from their local machine with paths to a server onsite. I would like for the users to be able to run the database from a webpage so the database can be run from anywhere. Does anyone have any ideas the best way to do this. Should I use sharepoint or something of its kind? Any help is appreciated.

    Simply making a database available on a web page won't work. You can create an interactive web page based on an Access table or query, in the Pages section of the database window. Or you can create a web application using ASP (for instance) that connects to your database.

    There are specialized tools for designing web applications, but I'll leave it to others to post recommendations about that.
