    Is it possible to create a web application using apache/php/mysql that has some tables on the web server and some on the client workstation, where the workstation has xampp installed?

    Ummm... I suppose that it is possible, but I can't think of any situation where it would be a good idea.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    Pat, should we delete this thread before anymore people see it, or leave it as an example of how the phrasing of a question can affect the answer.
    I spent a couple of hours yesterday researching how to access a database using javascript or the web browser, when all I really needed to do was start the application on the local server, and have it access the remote server.
    Done every day:
    Customer name and credit card number on the local server, credit card number and balance owing on the remote server.
