    I will have an access 2002 application on a shared server. Can I have
    multiple users using the same problem concurrently and updating the same
    tables???

    Will Access 2002 handle the issue of sharing with multiple users???

    If so, how (general concepts).


    It it can't be shared on a server, does anyone have possible suggestions???


    Thanks You,

    Gary

    Yes, you can, but see below.

    Yes, usually.

    Access is, out of the box, multiuser capable.

    You may run for a long time without problems, but having multiple users
    logged in to the same front-end or monolithic database significantly
    increases the chances of corruption. Thus, the standard suggested solution
    is to split the tables (back-end: tables and relationships) and store them
    on the server, but put a separate copy of the user interface (front-end:
    queries, forms, reports, macros, modules) on each user's machine.

    Distributing and updating the front-end is simplified by MVP Tony Toews'

    had good luck with the simpler approach that you'll find at
