I'm not sure if this question should be in the FP or Access topic areas, but here goes.

I'm going to web enable a database on FP98 using ODBC.
If a group of users are looking at the dB at the same time (eg during audio conference) will they each be able to look at the same record, and will they each need Access 97 installed on their pcs in order to participate.

Just realised that's two questions so I've doubled the points I was going to post.

Thanks

They will not need access on their pcs.  Several should be able to look at the same record at the same time.  How many?  Good question.  20-30 at one time doesn't seem to be a problem.  If there are going to be more than that, you might want to consider an SQL db.

Here is an article illustrating how to create a DSN-less connection which will hopefully help you.
