    With MS Access, no. You can use the Access file (*.mdb)'s data part (tables)
    as a web application's data source and use browser to access data i that web
    application. Access's form, report cannot be used in browser/web
    application.

    Well, you can run remote desktop through a browser plug-in, but I don't
    think that plug-in works for mac.


    However, there is a remote desktop client for the mac. The remote desktop is
    availing from Citrix.

    So, you could connect to a windows server running terminal services..and
    thus the macs could use the access applation.

    Another possible is to run windows emulation on the macs...but , that just
    not very clean....

    If you going to try a browser based application, then ms-access is just the
    wrong tool.

    However, I would certainly consider the remote desktop client for the
    mac.....
