    I would like to put an Access database on my internet site and have all the
    functionality of the database (forms, etc.) be available to my on-line users.
    Is this possible?

    The answer depends, in part, on how sophisticated your existing Access
    application is. Reproducing all of the functionality of a sophisticated
    non-trivial Access application in a web-based application is, if not
    actually impossible, at the very least difficult, time-consuming, and
    expensive. Reproducing or creating a less sophisticated application is, of
    course, correspondingly less difficult, less time-consuming, and less
    expensive.

    For some of the things you can do with Access and the Web see the following
    URL ...

    If you need much more than that, you'll need to re-create the application
    using some other technology. If you're free to set up your own server or
    choose your own hosting service, check out ASP.NET ...

    www.asp.net

    If you need to use an existing server or hosting service, start by talking
    to your administrative contacts to find out what technologies are supported
    on that server or by that hosting service. There are several different
    technologies used to develop and run web-based applications, and you don't
    want to choose one that is not supported on your server or by your hosting
    service.
