    Lightbulb Answered: Access my Database through a webpage

    How hard is this to accomplish?

    I want to basically access my Access Database anywhere by putting in a http website, so I am able to add and change the data anywhere i have internet access. I am currently writing down bookings on a piece of paper and having to add them when i get to the work computer. I would like to just type in the website address and input the data on the fly. Can it be done?

    My current experience with Microsoft Access is currently limited but I have studied I.T my whole life and pick things up pretty quickly.

    I already have a webhosting if this helps the situation.

    Thank you for your time!

    Steve

    Take a look at this, it looks like they have a cloud product that integrated with 2007. This might be worth looking at.

    I was researching the web app feature and it looks like it only host to SharePoint, if you bought the office suite package you would get SharePoint but then you would have to build out webparts and links to mount your database form(s) to the site. It doesn't look like it works with any web browser, just SharePoint.

    What version of MS Access are you using?

    The newest version 2013 you can create a custom web app and put the web location in, then create. I did this with sharepoint and was able to embed it as a form.

    Also check out OneDrive. You can go out to onedrive and put your database file out there. You can access one drive from a laptop, tablet etc, assuming it is compatible with the office suite.
