We can make the database file shared over the local area network or the internet.
How we do it ?
One of the ways used to make our access database shared over the network is using Link table manager.
1- put your datafile which contains the tables of your access application on a shared folder with appropriate sharing properties.
2-Open your application file that has the forms and other project objects.
3- From the File menu choose Get External Data, then choose Link Tables...
4- Specify the datafile that contains the tables; point to the file using network pointing from the file link dialog which apears.
5- Select the tables you want to make them shared by your application.
FYI: by changing the file extention from the file link dialog you may change the type of data file or server.
