Access database is just a normal file so you can just copy it to the server. Will the VB program be on the client or the server? If it's on the client then you will need to access the Access database over the network as  a normal file. If you cannot do this then use SQL Server or some other database that you could connect via TCP/IP. If you have file access to the server database (either on the server or from the client over the network) you would make a VB program that will use ADO to access the database). Just do a google or buy a book and you will find much information on how to make a VB program and use an Access database.
