I would like to create the back-end part of the database that is on a computer that act as a Server and the front end installed on single pc even on those that are not inside the company. Is possible to achive that and if yes how?

Thank you

Answer : Connecting from remote

This is a big topic, but generally, yes.  You can use an Access front-end application with a remote database in several scenarios:

Access - SQL Server (see my "Best of Both Worlds" presentation at
Access - Azure (
Access - Access using Terminal Services
Access - SharePoint (needs 2010 for optimal setup)

Note that you really can't do remote applications using a normal Access back-end.  It just isn't optimized for this.
