    Unanswered: Split Database for multipleusers

    Hi! I'm pretty new to MS Access. Could you please guide me on how to split MS Access 2003 so that it could be updated by multiple users at their own remote site.

    Could you restrict user's access? Maybe setup password so that they could only access and update certain tables specific to their own department only?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    The question is way too general. I'd need to write a book to adequately answer your question.

    Split Databases. See Tools ► Database Utillities ► Database Splitter.

    Remote Access. See PHP/MySQL or SQL server backend topics or terminal services or VPN.

    Userlevel Restrictions. See Access Userlevel Security or Building Custom Login forms and/or the GetUser() abilities.
