I'm looking for ideas on the best way to share information across the internet if possible.
The Visual Basic Program I have will be accumulating data into Access Databases, Excel Spreadsheets, or whatever else is convenient. Some of the data will be in the form of a report with a graph, some of the data will be live.. if possible. So for example, if we are running a test, and accumulating data, someone on the internet can log in and view the live test results as they happen.. Is this possible?
I'm wondering what the best way to make this data available across the internet (we have a sister company in Germany) from my VB program.
Are there any good software packages that will do this?

Thank you.

Sounds like you really need to create a Web Application.  Using ASP to generate dynamic html pages to show a user the latest data you have gathered.  Ideally, it would sit on a machine that maybe had something like SQL Server installed.  Your VB app could connect to the SQL Server machine via TCP/IP and store data there from anywhere.  Anyone logging into your web application on that machine would then see this latest data as it is pulled from the SQL Server database.
