    I have another computer in another office connected via wirless router. How
    can they, on the other computer, get access to my database?

    Do they have access to the drive where the database lives? If so, they can
    simply open the file.

    Using this wireless connection could cause you to experience more frequent
    corruption. If the connection is not very clean and stable, you may run
    into issues.

    I don't really know. We get the same Emails, but I went to the other
    computer and can't find the database I'm looking for.

    Well, we can't see your LAN. If you have a question about building a
    database, we can help.

    Not sure what sharing emails has to do with it. I can check my email from
    just about any place in the World, but I can't get to a file on my computer
    at home. If he is connected to your LAN and can browse the drives there,
    then he should be able to open the file (assuming he has access to the drive
    where that file lives).

    if you are using wireless network you can all use the windows remote
    connection which you will the full access to the pc on the other network.
    data integrity is not a big problem because access uses data locking records
    which stored the data so once you accidentally disconnected you can always re
    open the database and the data encoded will always be in the data locking
    record file.

    However, be aware that the risk of database corruption is significantly
    higher with wireless. In fact, I really wouldn't advise it.

    I respectfully disagree. Wireless connections have been reported as a
    cause of corruptions.
