"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think we need some more information here.
Have you got a WAN ?
Have you got internet access ?
Have you got e-mail ?
How large is the data ?
Is it all in one lump or is it to be transfered through out the day ?

Fed-Ex on tape is one possibility !
Tranfering data; you can do this electronic or not electonic:

I suppose you have access to the internet. The fastest way as far as I know to give other people (restricted by password if you like) the possibility to download large amounts of data is an ftp-server. You'll need somebody to set this up for you, or start trying finding info on the internet. This is a widely accepted and fast (not much overhead) way.

not electronic:
In my surroundings two media are quite general accepted: cd's and zip's (from: zipdrive). Writable ceedee by mail does work pretty well.

Only until the y2k? because you expect something.....:-)

Good luck,
