We have no network (at this point) so I have 3 or possibly 4 people that will work on the database. They will "probably" only be inputing info into 2 tables. Orders and Order details. What is the best way to distribute this to the different users AND to be able to synchronize the information after users input new orders (back to a master). I have tried reading the options but I find it confusing because of the constant possiblity of corruption not knowing which jet/version of access etc is on each computer. Should I just do an append qry when I get their copies sent to me and then redistribute the master or ??? Any input would be appreciated I have read the replication group / numerous articles and posts. But, if someone could just give me an answer in light of my scenario. Thanks!!
