You simply need to make sure that the database is placed somewhere that both computers can access it. This can be achieved either by placing it on a file server or by sharing a folder on one machine and keeping it there. You then need to ensure that you set the appropriate path to the database in your application. This can most easily be achieved by running the application from the same folder as the database and using App.Path & "\MyDatabase.mdb" as the database name in whatever OpenDatabase/Connection.Open or similar statements you are using.

Every time you open a recordset in your program will be useful to refresh that recordset to let the other pc´s look the changes at the table.

Hope this help
