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.

It is very easy....
1. Insert your Access database on a network drive.
2. In your application, change the path of the database to point to the network drive/path.
Thats all folks :-)
If you use any data controls in your application, make sure that the Exclusive property of the data control is set to FALSE.
