I have an access mdb and is ain a iis server for our intranet.  I was wondering if there was an easy way OR something I could download that would give individuals the ability to work on this database from their web browser?  Thanks!

Right now the two "main" ways are through ASP programming in your web pages and Access 2000's Data Access Pages.  I have not used the latter but hear from others that it is not very refined and has lots of problems.  If you are a programmer then ASP may be a solution but other than that there is really no easy way.  Hope it helps!

I have had a lot of success using Eli Robillard's GenericDB on our intranet.

I quote from his site:

GenericDB is an open source tool which allows developers to put nearly any database on the web for viewing and/or editing with very little code. The GenericDB engine is written with Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP) for IIS 4. It has also been tested successfully on Personal Web Server (as shipped with FrontPage 98 or downloaded from the Microsoft site; avoid the version shipped with Win98).

Take a look at his site at:
