    Exclamation Unanswered: Emailing Access objects (e.g. queries)

    I'm in a bit of a pickle and not sure if there even is a solution. I have set up a database for an overseas organization. They have been using it in my absence, and i have an old version i have been working on. I have made changes to some objects (e.g. queries, reports, forms). The database is too large to email. Is there anyway i can just email them the specific query etc which they can then integrate into their database?

    For the queries you could just email them the SQL and they could paste it over the existing query. Might be a little trickier for the Forms and Reports.

    Is it too big to send even if there is not data in the tables? One thing you could do is send them the empty database and have some code to import the data from their tables in the old database into your new database.

    Just a thought.

    Just export the objects you've modified into a new database.

    Send them that database.

    Step them through importing the objects from that database into theirs.

    Make sure you have them take adequate backups though!!
