    Default DB Form

    Hi,<BR><BR>Can you please tell me if this is possible ?<BR><BR>I have an access db and this db is used to enter certain records. Then we get an e-mail from our intn&#039;l office where we use that e-mail to manually update our db, which is then used by our staff for various reference. <BR><BR>What I want to know is would it be possible to create a page where our Intn&#039;l office could update the fields online, if so would it take a long time to update the db and while its been updated will it stop any other user from accessing it ? <BR><BR>Also can somebody tell me where I could get some reference in order for me to do this.<BR><BR>Thanks<BR>

    Yes, it&#039;s certainly possible and updates should happen quickly. If you code it correctly other users will not be locked out of the database. In order to do it you&#039;ll have to learn (at least a bit) of ASP and ADO - www.4guysfromrolla.com is a good place to start.<BR><BR>Another option to consider, if you&#039;ve got Access 2000, is replication over the Internet so that your international office could have (a partial) copy of your database which is synchronised.
