    Default RE: Update remote DB

    Access being file based, you can&#039;t really do this. I *have* in the past written ASP interfaces whereby a script on a local machine can update a remote machine across the network, but I don&#039;t think that&#039;s what you&#039;re asking for, is it? basically you&#039;re going to need to simply download the DB, or spend a chunk (a BIG chunk) of time writing ASP/Script interfaces at either end which can operate via HTTP requests. (and they&#039;re not very efficient when they are done)<BR><BR>j<BR>http://atrax.ws/<BR>
