    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.....

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
