This is probably a crazy question, but will ask it anyway.

Is there a way to share an Access database via the web?

Off the top of my head I am thinking of a situation where there might be a
split database with the back-end stored in a Windows live skydrive folder
restricted to certain users with the users having their own front-ends. Not
sure exactly how I would make the Target.

Maybe one would go about such a task in a completely different way. Anyway,
all ideas welcome. Please enlighten me.

Thanks so much.

By the way, each time I post a question I check the "Notify me of replies"
box but I never get notified. It used to work properly, but it doesn't
anymore. If anyone powerful is listening, that could use a fix.

You can do that with Sharepoint and Access 2007 or 2010 but having an access
to Sharepoint is not free.

Absolutely, but it's not straight forward.

You could use a website (preferably, at least for me, in ASP.net) and use
Access as your back end.

This would require knowing web development, database development, having a
web server or hosted space (the big name web hosting company I use allows
Access databases) and on and on.

but it could be done.

The responses above have been helpful, but I am still interested in focusing
on the skydrive. Windows live has a skydrive. Is it possible to connect to a
backend in skydrive from a desktop target - recognizing of course that one
has to sign in and be authorized?

No.

Access does not "play nice" over such a connection. It needs a fast, stable
Local Area Network.

What's worse, it will let you connect (probably) - but will be unbearably
slow, unstable, and run a great risk of permanently corrupting your backend
database.
