    Question Unanswered: Can I write my output to CD ROM and How?

    I have a simple access 2002 application that writes the output ( Only few tables form this access database) to a floppy disk. At the server end, I have an access database application that reads and use this data. We want to upgrade this floppy disk output to CD Rom. Can this be done in my access code and how? We prefer not to ask our users to copy from hard disk to CD Rom. Thanks! Lynn

    Well... I would be looking at using those direct access tools for your DVD software... the ones that turn your DVD into a drive that you can just access and write to like any other drive. The ones that I never install because they cause too many other problems.

    However, this still requires that your users have the smarts to put a DVD in the drive and make sure it is mounted / formatted properly for it to work.
