Two questions really, I have been asked to develop a database system that many users on different computers will access. They will append and view all there data from one single database on the shared drive. Firstly, am I best developing this in Access for another programming language (Java, C++, VB). Secondly, if Access is used how would all the users access the single database without getting permission errors because other people are writing?

Can someone direct me into the write direction please?

Thanks in advance,

Mike.
