    Unanswered: Update web based access db

    Is there a way to connect my desktop access db to a web access db to upload new data to the server? It seems to me that it should be a pretty simple process but I'm not having much luck.

    Thanx,
    Dave

    Hurrah....

    At last. Someone else who has suffered my pain. I tried this for ages, and finally gave up. It seemed to me that you should be able to link tables to databases on FTP sites. But...you can't . WHY NOT?

    Anyone know anything?

    Access isn't a server-based application, therefore there are no 'inbuilt' features to update database records.

    You could however create a number of scripts to copy/update data between the two databases.

    Scripts could be written in VB / VBScript / ASP / Cold Fusion / Perl / PHP / etc etc..

    Cheers,
    Andrew
